PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Talbot is a five-eyelet oxford shoe that also draws inspiration from lightweight jazz and dance shoes. Clean, simple, and versatile, the soft suede moulds to your foot, and the sole flexes with natural movement. The handmade, unlined upper sits atop a custom-cut Vibram sole unit in a choice of black, white, or gum colour, which are able to be resoled at our Northampton factory if required at a later date. Between the insole and outsole, the shoe features a layer of cork filling which is usually only found in high-quality, hand-made dress shoes. This process acts in a similar way to memory foam, adding comfort and support as your foot gradually beds into the shoe, leaving a subtle and lasting personal imprint of the wearer's feet. This unisex style can be worn with several different smart or casual outfits and the lightweight feel makes this a perfect everyday or travel shoe. Signed off with handwritten internal style notes, our entire Jazz Collection is handmade to order at our factory in Northampton, England.

CLICKER'S NOTES - KUDU SUEDE

Kudu suedes and leathers are used by the world's best footwear brands. It has a soft, luxurious look and feel, yet is also known for its strength and durability. Kudu leather carries a distinctive, pronounced grain that can merge with natural marks and scars picked up when roaming the wild plains of Africa, whilst kudu suede is extremely soft and smooth to the touch with an overall delicate feel. However, don't let this put you off as kudu suede and leather contains extremely strong fibres that make it tough, flexible and resilient - as well as looking and feeling great. Sourced directly from the CF Stead Tannery in Leeds, England, kudu suede and leather are used across all Crown Northampton footwear collections due to its versatility, premium quality, and wearability.

    • 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.
