The Abington Hi Toe Cap is a hi-top sneaker with oversized leather toe cap. Our nod of respect to the historic baseball and basketball boot style that has now become a design classic. Minimally styled with subtle blind eyelet lacing and double stitched at pressure points for added strength. The custom made sole unit offers strength, durability and comfort all in a lightweight base which is then securely attached with sidewall stitching, allowing for resoling at a later date if required. The sneaker collection is handmade to order in Northampton, England using only the finest leathers sourced from some of the best tanneries in the world. Fully lined with luxuriously soft natural leather, complete with extremely comfortable hand finished insoles.
CLICKER’S NOTES - HORWEEN LEATHER
When wearing premium leather from the world-famous Horween leather company in Chicago, USA, you go on a journey. Due to their unique finishing processes, Horween leathers are quite firm on first wear, but then break in gradually, softening and moulding to the wearer's foot to create the perfect fit. Founded in 1905, Horween's secret blend of natural oils and family processes have been passed down through the generations. Known for their exclusive Chromexcel, Cavalier, Essex and Shell Cordovan leather collections, Horween leathers have a soft and smooth handle, restoring itself when marked. It also has extreme longevity and wears in over time, creating beautifully unique patinas.
