The myth that suede is just for summer is something we like to stamp out at Crockett & Jones. In fact, with the right treatment and care suede can be worn and enjoyed all year round. Therefore, we have chosen our top 5 winter suede styles to keep your feet well shod during the colder seasons.
Chiltern Navy Suede
We start our top 5 with our long-standing favourite Chukka boot, Chiltern in Navy Suede. A colourway that was introduced this Autumn Winter season into the collection to bring the Chiltern collection to five colourways. With Dainite rubber soles and repello suede that is tanned with water repellent, Chiltern in Navy Suede is a truly versatile boot for the colder season.
Chelsea 11 Slate Suede
For those looking for a slightly lighter practical colour to brighten up their winter wardrobe, Chelsea 11 in Slate Suede is the ideal choice. Another style set on the Dainite rubber sole; Chelsea 11 also benefits from a storm welt for added water resistance. Although this colourway of suede is not scotch guarded in the tanning process a coat of Saphir Super Invulner spray will set you on your way to enjoy Chelsea 11 in the winter weather conditions.
Pembroke Dark Brown Suede
Those looking for a shoe rather than a boot to wear this winter, Pembroke, our classic full brogue country style derby shoe has you covered. Again, with an added storm welt and full treated scotch guard repello suede, Pembroke in Dark Brown Suede is our go to smart casual choice. Pembroke is as at home in the office as it is in a country pub.
Cornell Earth Green Suede
First introduced in 2022 as Crockett & Jones’ nod to Ivy League style, Cornell has been popular from the get-go. The chunky Red Rubber Unit sole, produced by Harboro Rubber Co, alongside a notched storm welt makes Cornell a versatile Derby shoe for all seasons. Also available in Ocean and Khaki Suede.
Chelsea 8 Dark Brown Suede
Our final choice is Chelsea 8 in Dark Brown Suede, a popular smart casual style available in both our standard E and wider G fittings. Produced on our ‘City’ Rubber Sole Chelsea 8 offers the formality of a leather sole with the practicality and longevity of a rubber sole. Made from our water repellent suede colourway, Dark Brown Suede, Chelsea 8 can be worn happily all year round.
