Sizing Information

GENERAL FIT INFORMATION

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. 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 you require a wide fit, 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. Our unique wide fitting service is a popular choice among many customers.

COMPARED TO OTHER FOOTWEAR 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 below.

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.

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.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Abington Hi Toe Cap is a hi-top sneaker with oversized leather toe cap. Our nod of respect to the historic baseball and basketball boot style that has now become a design classic. Minimally styled with subtle blind eyelet lacing and double stitched at pressure points for added strength. 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. 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. Finished with laser-etched branding to the outsole, handwritten internal style notes and compact heel pull that also acts as a wraparound lace loop for longer laces. 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.
