The Upton is a handmade premium sneaker with wholecut construction made from a one piece leather upper. A clean-cut style with hidden stitching throughout, the Upton draws inspiration from classic dress shoe design and is finished with subtle blind eyelet lacing and a soft padded collar. The sneaker collection is handmade to order in our Northampton, England factory using only the finest leathers sourced from some of the best tanneries in the world such as CF Stead in Leeds, England and the Horween Company in Chicago, USA. Fully lined with luxuriously soft natural leather, complete with extremely comfortable hand finished Crown Northampton insoles. The custom made Crown Northampton sole unit offers strength, durability and comfort all in a lightweight base which is then securely attached with sidewall stitching, allowing for resoling in our factory at a later date if required. Further details include a Crown embossed padded tongue, premium waxed laces, handwritten internal style notes and an extra set of insoles that can be placed underneath the existing insoles to help tailor the fit if necessary. Handmade to order in Northampton, England.
Calf leather is a very popular choice when ordering our sneakers. Known as a premium grade leather that is firm and even whilst offering a consistent finish across the hide, calf sometimes carries a fine grain or it can be completely smooth depending on the finishing process. Some key features of calfskin are it’s soft and supple feel which makes it ideal for footwear as it can move and flex with the wearer, it’s signature fine grain that gives a high-quality finish, and importantly it’s durability whilst also remaining lightweight. At Crown Northampton, we pride ourselves on only using the finest materials available and we carefully select the ideal calfskin finish and firmness, based on the style that we are making. With our factory located in the world-famous footwear heartland of Northampton, we’re privileged to source leathers from the best leather merchants in England. We only select first-grade calf suede and leather from English tanneries such as CF Stead alongside the finest Italian tanneries.
