Put Yourself In 007’s Shoes. Literally.
Sure, you’ve bungee jumped into a chemical weapons facility in the former USSR, chased a hot brunette down the Thames in a speedboat while she shot at you, and skiied off the edge of a mountain and floated to safety with a Union Jack parachute, but you haven’t really known what it’s like to be in James Bond’s shoes until now. Crockett & Jones ($550), a shoemaker in Northampton, England dressed 007’s feet in Skyfall, and lucky for you, they’re available for purchase in their retail shops in London, New York, Birmingham, Paris and Brussels (in case you’re in the neighborhood). The premium, 5th generation shoemakers have crafted four stylish styles for your pleasure—the classic-looking Alex, made of fine calf leather, the Highbury, a plain fronted three eyelet derby shoe, the Tetbury, an ankle-high chukka boot made from fine antique nubuck or suede, and the Islay, a high, lace-up derby boot with wing tip design. All perfect for sipping martinis, Evil Knievel’ing over bridges and of course, seducing thousands of women. It is so on.
