We are pleased to announce that we will be participating in a fine leather footwear gathering hosted by our friends from Stitchdown! On Friday 6th and Saturday 7th October Stitchdown’s BootCamp is bringing together various key players from the boot and shoemaking industry for two days of footwear fun. Hosted at Industry City in Brooklyn, NY, we’re taking some of our craftspeople across the Atlantic to showcase our full range of Crown Northampton footwear.
Members of our talented factory team will be on-show in our transported workshop, so you can drop by our booth to get a closer look at our hand-lasters as they bring the shoe-making process to life.
There will also be slots available for a lucky few to come and try their hand at sewing a welt, under the direction and guidance of our experienced team of course. If you’re interested in giving it a go, be on the lookout for further information on how to book your slot.
We will have a full sizing run available, so you can try on our made-to-order collections and find your perfect fit before placing your order online. We will have members of our factory-based customer service team available at the counter to answer any questions you may have about materials, size, fit and style. So if there is anything you need to know we’ll be there to help!
There are new special, limited edition kudu leather sneakers on the horizon from Crown Northampton and attendees of the event will be able to get their names down to be the first to get their own pair. We’ll also be running a competition for a chance to get your hands on a pair totally free!
Our owner, Chris, will be speaking on a panel at the event about his experiences in the industry, approach to making and the future.
You will also have the opportunity to meet the entire team in a more relaxed setting as our staff will be attending the after-parties on both evenings. This will be a great chance to mingle with all the people who know shoes best and meet other shoe enthusiasts attending the event.
As if this all wasn’t exciting enough, we will also be unveiling our new project E.Woodford for its world-wide debut. A revived brand born from the heritage of the Woodford family, creating the finest made-to-order footwear and utilising the skills, dedication and talent of the craftspeople behind the Crown Northampton brand.
