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 in line 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 - HORWEEN BUFFALO LEATHER

Horween buffalo leather is tanned in the US in a similar way to Chromexcel with a combination of both vegetable and chrome tanning. Through these processes, the buffalo is naturally shrunken down from around 30ft to 20ft when finished. This skilled process pulls the fibres together tight, making them very tough and durable. Each skin retains its own personal ruggedness which results in a pronounced grain that can vary in size across the surface. As the skins are purposely left natural straight out of the tanning drum and not embossed for a uniform finish, the true character of each skin shines through, making each pair of sneakers or shoes made from the material completely unique. The Horween Company is hugely respected and continues to deliver the very best leather available in the world through complex tanning processes and secret family methods.

  • 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. If this is a service you require, please just add 'G Fitting' in the checkout cart notes box before payment. These notes will be added to your order and passed on our factory.
  • 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.
