Following on our illustrious Patina Post feature, we bring you two new collaborations with Crockett & Jones to kick off a new patina journey for all our discerning gents, with configurations designed for all-season styling and all-terrain trekking. The Oak Wax Hide Shannon and Bronze Oiled Sides Grizedale utilize specialty leathers exclusively developed for Crockett & Jones to meet the conditions of the outdoors with natural character and poise, Itshide Commando soles to track and travel with confidence and composure, and corresponding tonal specifications that will conquer the wilds and stride the streets with subtle sophistication. Experience how Crockett & Jones makes some of the finest footwear in the world through these refined collaborations via the Division Road perspective of aesthetic utility.
Inspired by a tour through distant lands on the hunt for rare articles, this Shannon is ready for any encounter on a new expedition. The Oak Wax Hide is a combination tanned leather specially formulated for water protection along with preserving the natural characteristics of hand-selected hides and comes in a brilliant aniline dyed chestnut that smoothly bridges casual and formal. Finished with accents from eyelets to apron stitching that relate to the tan storm welt, darker tan midsole, and Itshide Commando Sole, this Shannon displays subtle sophistication ideal for daily wear by the cultured and collector alike.
Designed as an outdoor hunting-meets-hiking boot, the Grizedale made its first appearance in James Bond’s Spectre to exemplify a world class wanderer who will take on villains with virtue and vice. The style has been evolved for the more judicious adventurer with a waterproof membrane interlining in a single continuous vamp and bellows tongue to prevent any moisture intrusion in the worst of conditions, and an unlined quarter for increased flexibility. The Bronze Oiled Sides leather specifically ordered for Division Road provides robust performance in the outback via a heavily oiled recipe and remarkable nubucked grain characteristics presented in a matte finish and a lightly dyed khaki color that will evolve with each escapade.
