John Lobb: Saint Crepin 201

Each year, the sublime shoemaker John Lobb treats its admirers to a limited edition shoe in celebration of Saint Crispin. Aimed to invigorate and inspire, these products have become the roots of the brand’s refined expression output – perfectly balancing tradition and stylistic nuances, to create items of true marvel. This season they have continued to explore this realm with the release of The Saint Crepin 2012.

A carefully mastered edition the Crepin is the first of its kind to be made in ankle boot form. Its leather quarters are cut to the form of an asymmetrical leaf; purely for functionality reasons. These sections are then ‘boarded’: an old age working technique used to create a fine, natural, grain-serving as an acute detail to the boot itself.
