George (Chukka) Boot
Crockett & Jones
The high standard of workmanship in this Crockett boot is no surprise, coming as they do from this venerable firm. The proprietary all-weather sole is Goodyear welted over the leather sole and features an additional 360 degree Split Reverse Welt (Storm Welt) for further water-proofing. The George Boot was introduced in 1952 to replace the Wellington Boot, traditionally worn as a formal mess, dress and parade boot. With its higher-set eyelets and rearward set quarters the authentic military George Boot should not be confused with the less robust civilian models or the similar but lower cut laced or buckled Chukka boots.
The overall effect of the George Boot’s cut and lacing, the uninterrupted sweep of the vamp, the disappearance of the lacing under trousers, is one of sleekness and elegance and as highly recommended for business wear as it is for jeans.
