PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Abington is a handmade premium sneaker with derby construction and oversized leather toe cap design that draws inspiration from vintage baseball and basketball footwear. Double stitched at pressure points for added strength, all stitching to the upper is otherwise hidden throughout and finished with subtle blind eyelet lacing and a soft padded collar. The sneaker collection is handmade to order in our Northampton, England factory using only the finest leathers sourced from some of the best tanneries in the world such as CF Stead in Leeds, England and the Horween Company in Chicago, USA. Fully lined with luxuriously soft natural leather, complete with extremely comfortable hand finished Crown Northampton insoles. The custom made Crown Northampton sole unit offers strength, durability and comfort all in a lightweight base which is then securely attached with sidewall stitching, allowing for resoling in our factory at a later date if required. Further details include a Crown embossed padded tongue, premium waxed laces, handwritten internal style notes and an extra set of insoles that can be placed underneath the existing insoles to help tailor the fit if necessary. Handmade to order in Northampton, England.

CLICKER’S NOTES - HORWEEN LEATHER 

When wearing premium leather from the world-famous Horween leather company in Chicago, USA, you go on a journey. Due to their unique finishing processes, Horween leathers are quite firm on first wear, but then break in gradually, softening and moulding to the wearer's foot to create the perfect fit.  Founded in 1905, Horween's secret blend of natural oils and family processes have been passed down through the generations. Known for their exclusive Chromexcel, Cavalier, Essex and Shell Cordovan leather collections, Horween leathers have a soft and smooth handle, restoring itself when marked. It also has extreme longevity and wears in over time, creating beautifully unique patinas. Crown Northampton are honoured to work with leathers from the world class Horween Company tannery.

  • How do your sneakers fit in comparison to other sportswear 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 which be found here.
  • How do your sneakers fit in comparison to other Northampton shoe brands? 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.
  • What are the main differences between your Overstone, Upton and Abington sneaker styles? They are all made on the same last so generally the overall fit is the same. The main difference is in the construction to the upper. The Overstone and Abington styles have an open derby construction which is made up of separate pieces. Also the Abington also has a leather toe cap piece. The Upton is slightly different as it is made with a wholecut, one piece upper that gives a continuous finish. All three styles are based on  traditional Northampton footwear methods of construction - Derby, Wholecut, Toe cap. A more detailed review and summary can be found here.
  • Do you offer a wide fitting option? Yes. 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.

  • Is it possible to add my own insoles to your footwear? Yes but not with all collections. The insoles in our Classic Sneaker Collection (Overstone, Upton, Abington styles) are fully removable so a large insole can be added. Our Hand Stitch Sneakers, Stitchdown, Jazz and Slipper collections do not have removable insoles but thin insoles could be added on top if needed.
