Chukka Boot R Conker Brown
"Fits ever so slightly generously by around a quarter size. The facings open out to accomodate a slightly higher than standard instep if required. With leather insoles, they fit true to size. If you are inbetween sizes, then we normally recommend dropping down to the nearest whole size."

Hand finished conker brown patina
These are Italian crafted, conker brown chukka boots, made using full grain, calf leather.
Our Hamilton chukka has 3 eyelets per side and the sweeping lines associated with Italian and European styling.
Chukka boots are actually very versatile boots. You can dress them up or down depending on the occasion and the outfit. You can wear them casually, with jacket and trousers and many wear them with a suit.
Conker brown is very versatile colour. It goes well with a neutral suit and pairs very well with blue and navy.
Craftsmanship/Attention to detail
Looking inside the boot, we see the a full calf leather lining, Thomas Bird branding, embossed into a piece of calf leather, foam backed for added comfort. The top line is neat, with no raw edges, as we taper or ‘skyve’ the edge, then fold and stitch it. We use a genuine full leather insole. Inside the heel, the reverse counter, we use suede to stop your heel slipping. We use flat, waxed laces with are anti slip to keep your bows neatly tied up.
What you can’t see are the two stiffeners, between the calf upper and lining. There is one in the toe and another at the back around the heel. These are important to keep the shoe looking good as it ages, and we use longer, high quality stiffeners to achieve this.
Stitched leather sole
The sole is stitched onto the upper with a traditional Italian method called blake stitching. Th is an in-channel, lock stitching technique, so even if one stitch was worn the others will still be locked securely in place. And being stitched the sole can be replaced when it eventually wears. But to extend the sole’s life, we've added a rubber commando overlay, for added wear and better grip in tougher terrain.
Stacked leather heel
There is a 25mm genuine leather stacked and pinned heel, held together with 4 brass pins. There is a rubber half piece, again for better wear and grip, that can be easily replaced when worn.
High quality materials, superb craftsmanship, many years experience and attention to detail - our oxford Hamilton chukka is a beautifully made high quality shoe, that with care should give you many years of enjoyment.
