Every year, on the 25th October, bootmakers honour St. Crispin, their patron saint, by creating a masterpiece, showcasing both their expertise and their dedication to the craft.
In keeping with the spirit of this tradition, John Lobb has once again designed and crafted the annual unique limited edition, a celebration of their know-how.
Celebrating a masterpiece
In the workshops the process begins with sketches made by the Artistic Director. The choice of style, shape, leather and sole are essential in the development stages of each of these vintage models. This is shown by the fact that it may take as long as a year between the start of the creative process and the final model.
Each vintage a challenge
Every single year, John Lobb face up to the challenge of creating a single model. Made entirely by hand, the work involves the very finest expertise.
For the true aficionados
The model is unveiled on 25th October, St. Crispin’s Day, and presented in its own unique packaging.
