2022 marks the 60th anniversary of the James Bond films. Dr No was released in 1962.
Crockett & Jones and EON Productions announce the release of a new style, Hamilton, in celebration of James Bond’s 60th anniversary.
2022 marks the 60th anniversary of the James Bond films. It was Albert R. Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman who adapted Ian Fleming’s Dr. No for the screen in 1962. The 007 franchise is the longest running in film history with twenty-five films produced, to date.
AN ORIGINAL CHELSEA
A boot of the era, the Chelsea, was the only choice. Crockett & Jones has been producing Chelsea boots for nearly a century, with one of the first illustrations appearing in 1925.
Aptly named ‘Chelsea’, it wasn't until the early 1960s that 'Chelsea' appeared in its Stock Catalogue for wider wholesale purchase. 1962, the year that Dr. No was released, paved the way for one of the firms most successful style categories over the past 60 years.
Featuring traditional, straight cut elastics, a plain front whole vamp, oak bark leather sole, flexible shoulder insoles and a jockey back strip in matching calf.
Produced on the original 236 last, a last that was launched in the early 60’s and features a traditional round toe shape.
Featuring in the wider AW22 collection, we have further developed our excellent fitting 379 last with four new styles, a new G-fitting derby in suede with our cleated rubber sole, and two new styles for the Hand Grade Collection.
