Sizing Information

GENERAL

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 which is an industry average fit that will suit most feet but we are also able to off a wider than average G fitting on request. If this is a service you require, 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. 

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. 

The most efficient process is to place your foot on a piece of paper, ideally barefooted and mark the two furthest points diagonally from your heel to your longest toe, then take the measurement from point to point. You should then select the corresponding UK/US/EUR/CM size that is around 0.6 CM to 1 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 (Sneaker Collection 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.

Our Stitchdown collection is masterfully crafted in England by hand - From start to finish. The Grove Desert Shoe is a five eyelet design with derby lace up construction. The sole is made from crepe which is extremely hardwearing and also lightweight and very comfortable. This special edition is made from ultra premium Chromexcel leather from the the world famous Horween leather company in Chicago, USA. Founded in 1905 - Chromexcel is known as the original pull up leather and wears in beautifully over time. It creates a unique patina that comes from Horween's secret blend of natural oils and family processes that have been passed down through the generations. The interior is unlined as the leather is backed and the footbed is lined with soft leather. The Grove Desert Shoe goes through several complex and skilled processes before completion and none more important than the stitchdown welting stage. This process uses a Number 10 sole stitcher - an integral machine used in making traditional Northampton shoes and boots. Furthermore, this provides the bold stitching used to secure the crepe sole and the technique also ensures the shoes are strong and flexible.
