Fine Footwear

Find exclusive Crockett & Jones shoe selection on the East Side


With temperatures dropping and leaves turning, it means your wardrobe is ready for a change, too. Thankfully, Marc Allen Fine Clothiers has the staples you need to thrive in New England’s most colorful – and sometimes unpredictable – season.

It all starts with the right shoe. Eighteen months ago, on a buying trip in Italy, the custom clothier was able to meet with English shoemakers Crockett & Jones. Since 1879, C&J has been producing some of the world’s finest footwear from their factory in Northampton, the shoemaking capital of England. To this day, the company is still owned and managed by the founding family, and just like Marc Allen, believes in quality and a timeless sense of style. Longtime fans, Marc Allen convinced the owners to make their shop one of the only spots in the United States to feature C&J shoes and boots.

The C&J shoes sport various styles of rubber soles that are as useful in rainy New England as they are across the pond. They’re also stylish, and have been worn by members of the royal family, as well as current 007 Daniel Craig in recent movies. So, if you’re ready to give your shoes a seasonal update, or elevate your footwear to James Bond status, make an appointment at Marc Allen Fine Clothiers for this exclusive selection.
