Sizing Information

GENERAL FIT INFORMATION

Crown Northampton footwear fits true to UK sizing and all sizes are unisex so please order accordingly. We suggest ordering your usual UK size or corresponding US size in the table below.

All of our collections are made to an F fitting as standard. This is an industry average fit that will suit most feet but we are also able to offer a wider than average G fitting on request.

If you require a wide fit, please just add 'G Fitting' in the checkout notes box before payment. These notes will be added to your order and passed on our factory. Our unique wide fitting service is a popular choice among many customers.

COMPARED TO OTHER FOOTWEAR BRANDS

The length of our sneakers is similar to Nike, Converse, Vans & Made in England New Balance. All footwear brands are sized slightly differently, but as a guide we suggest taking the same size in Crown Northampton that you would take in the brands mentioned above. We also offer a manual size guide by CM below.

We suggest ordering a half size bigger than your size in other Northampton formal and dress shoe brands such as Crockett & Jones, Tricker's and Edward Green.

CM MEASUREMENT VS ACTUAL FOOT LENGTH

For a more precise size guide that is specific to Crown Northampton footwear, we ask that you go by our listed CM measurements vs the actual length of your foot. 

In order to get the best size for your feet, follow these simple steps:

1. Place your foot on a piece of paper and mark the two furthest points from your heel to your longest toe, then take the measurement from point to point.

2. Using the size table above you can compare between UK/US/EU sizing in centimetres, we recommend you select a size around 0.4 CM to 0.8 CM longer than your actual foot measurement for the optimum fit.

We take our listed CM measurements directly from the last so this size conversion method is the most accurate and personal to each customer.

 

COMPLIMENTARY INSOLES (Classic & TL Sneaker Collections Only)

With each Sneaker collection order we add in an extra pair of complimentary insoles with memory foam properties that can be slipped under the existing insoles if desired. This helps achieve a closer fit and in most cases compensates for a half size. This added extra is available with the Sneaker collection only. 

OTHER AVAILABLE COLOURS

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Our Hand Stitch Collection is the pinnacle of luxury, handmade sneakers. With a low profile silhouette, hand-finished construction, and world-class materials have been specifically tailored and tweaked, further elevating the Crown Northampton Sneaker range to the highest levels possible. This top tier collection draws inspiration from bespoke, hand welted dress shoes with more than a few nods of respect to time-honored traditional processes. Externally, the Harlestone Derby uses the finest Scottish deer suede. The inner workings of the Hand Stitch Sneaker Collection are equally impressive. Following the standards set with bespoke, hand welted shoes, our Harlestone Derby sneakers are cork filled by hand. This age-old process requires skill and patience and is held dear to Crown Northampton's traditional roots. The cork forms a solid filler down the full spine of the sneaker that provides just enough movement to mould to the wearers' feet, with the additional benefits of comfort, stability, and breathable properties throughout the sneaker. Traditional oak bark leather is used for the counter and stiffener with a natural veg-tan crust shoulder used to form the foundations of the insole. Topped with soft, natural leather lining and french bound stitching around the outer edges, the end result of these combined classic techniques is a solid, reliable structure that offers superior strength and longevity. Hand Stitch sign off detail is applied to the upper and rear dog tail tabs with signature 'Double Stitch' finishing. This thick, natural waxed cotton double stitch adds construction security and design character. These intricate, centuries-old construction details, further close the gap between high-end casual sneakers and traditional, Goodyear Welted Northampton dress shoes. Continually pushing the boundaries of high quality, casual led footwear; Crown Northampton confidently produce what is now the ultimate handmade in England ‘Dress Sneaker’ 

SUSTAINABLE SOLES

The Harlestone Derby is finished with Lactae Hevea soles. Made from virgin hevea milk harvested directly from the Cao Su or ‘Crying Wood’ tree; these soft, durable sole units are fully sustainable and offer a comfortable ride that only gets better with each wear. All styles from the Hand Stitch Collection are available with a choice of natural gum, white or black soles, and inline with sustainability characteristics, they are fully resoleable at a later date if required.

*Please note. Due to the natural finishing processes used to create Lactae Hevea soles, there may sometimes be slight imperfections and colour differences from sole to sole. However, this is all part of the unique finish when using natural materials and the overall precision and performance of Lactae Hevea sole units will never be compromised.

CLICKER’S NOTES - CALF LEATHER

The calfskin used across our Hand Stitch Collection is pure vegetable tanned and one of the very finest calf leathers available in the world. Calf leather is a very popular choice when ordering our sneakers. Known as a premium grade leather that is firm and even whilst offering a consistent finish across the hide, calf sometimes carries a fine grain or it can be completely smooth depending on the finishing process - our vegetable tanned calf is sourced and collected from Alpine grazed cattle. Some key features of calfskin are it’s soft and supple feel which makes it ideal for footwear as it can move and flex with the wearer, it’s signature fine grain that gives a high-quality finish, and importantly it’s durability whilst also remaining lightweight. At Crown Northampton, we pride ourselves on only using the finest materials available and we carefully select the ideal calfskin finish and firmness, based on the style that we are making. With our factory located in the world-famous footwear heartland of Northampton, we’re privileged to source leathers from the best leather merchants in England. We only select first-grade calf suede and leather from English tanneries such as CF Stead alongside the finest Italian tanneries.
