John Lobb Fall/Winter 2017 Looks to Roots of Boot Making
John Lobb recently presented their Fall/Winter 2017 collection, pulling inspiration from the River Nene and its significance to the history of boot making. Each shoe in the lineup shows a focus on uninterrupted lines, fine detailing, and the finishing of raw materials. New rubber soles are based on archival wooden lugs and paired with the distinctive storm welt feature. Some standouts include a clean, effortless oxford with five eyelets that’s finished off with waxed laces. The brand’s also recrafted a full brogue duo from the Bespoke archives, reigniting the care and attention that takes place between the artisans of John Lobb’s Northampton factory and Bespoke Atelier. They’ve also introduced a water resistant suede croc for a flued Jodhpur boot, their Levah plimsole, as well as a newly launched Porth sneaker.
