Our Summer Sale – 2nd Mark Down at 35% Off Now Live!

Today marks the start of our 2nd markdown for the J.FitzPatrick 2017 Summer Sale, of which I am sure many of you were waiting for. Unlike most years where we go down 30% off, this year we have decided to take it down to 35% off in the hopes to give you that little bit extra with the 5%. And this little bit extra has pushed many models below the £200 mark for those of you who do not pay VAT, giving you an unbeatable value for money with the quality of our shoes versus the price that you are […]

The Lynwood- 20% Off selected models in our Sale

Dear All, We are just over a week into our Annual Summer Sale and there are still some great deals to be had. One of which is 20% Off 4 of 6 of our Lynwood Hand-sewn Derby. Whilst we know the most famous model is a split-toe Derby, we wanted to keep the front clean and thus not have this feature. The new model also comes on our new last, the SEA last. Features of this last are that it has a more Symmetrical shape from the forefoot to the toe and a narrow fitting, ensuring a more hugging feel […]

The SEA Last- Symmetrical Point

Dear All, We have 7 last shapes at J.F Footwear and wanted to start doing some blog posts about each of them. (LPB, TMG, MGF, SEA, NGT, NJF & JKF) Today we look at the new SEA Symmetrical Point Last. The newest addition to the family that has similar aesthetics to our JKF last and is more ‘pointy’ than our others. In terms of the fit, the SEA has similar qualities with our NGT last due to being our most fitted, offering a very hugging feeling through the arch/heel/forefoot which adding a tiny bit of length in the toe. The […]

Summer Party Season- Loafers are a must

Dear All, I hope you had a pleasant weekend. Summer is pretty much in full swing which also means plenty more parties; including BBQs, a day at the races, Henley Regatta, Wimbledon and many more garden parties happening. Finding the correct outfit to wear at all these events is quite challenging but I think Loafers are always a winner. (Unless in enclosures with specific dress codes) I recently went to the Epsom Races (not in Royal enclosure) so could wear something ‘smart/casual’. I ended up wearing a Blue Suede loafer with navy chinos, blue shirt and a rather bright linen […]

The NGT Last

Dear All, We have 7 last shapes at J.F Footwear and wanted to start doing some blog posts about each of them. (LPB, TMG, MGF, SEA, NGT, NJF & JKF) Today we look at the NGT last. Our NGT last was designed to be the midway point between our TMG and JKF lasts ( to come in next posts). It’s intention was to serve as a last that was neither too round nor too pointy. We felt that this creation posed as the ideal ‘modern round’ last. The toe shape is not the only detail that separates our NGT last […]
