If you’re a James Bond fan, then you’re probably just as excited as I am about SKYFALL, the 23rd James Bond film that’s coming out in a few weeks’ time. Naturally, we can expect plenty of action and extended fight scenes from Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem, but I’ve having watched the trailer (several times now), I’ve also noticed the handsome shoes worn by our favourite British agent.
After doing some research it turns out that Daniel Craig will be wearing creations from British shoemaker Crocket & Jones. More specifically, amongst the fistfights on train tops in rural Turkey and car chases in Scotland, Mr Bond is donning four pairs of shoes from the brand including the Alex, Highbury, Tetbury and the Islay.
Founded in 1879 by James Crockett & his brother-in-law Charles Jones, the Northamption shoemaker is in its 5th generation and their reputation for traditional craftsmanship and quality footwear is second to none. Seeing that James Bond is a style icon, the match is made in heaven. After all, if it’s good enough for James Bond…
For those who haven’t seen the trailer yet, it’s below. Skyfall is out in Australia on 22nd November.
