John Lobb Launches New Shoe Day Model

One of the traditions, founded in 1866 in London, by the English shoe brand John Lobb, the annual release of a new model of shoes for St. Crispin and Crispian's Day, which in the Christian tradition are the patrons of shoemakers and weavers.

Siblings Crispin and Crispinian came from a wealthy Roman family. They had to live during the persecution of Christians at the end of the III century. Inflamed with love for Christ, the brothers left a well-fed, prosperous life in Rome and retired to Soissons (a city northeast of Paris), where they preached Christ, simultaneously doing shoe work and helping those in need. For confession of faith and their missionary activity they accepted martyrdom. Saints Crispin and Crispinian are considered patrons of such professions as tanner, saddler, tailor, shoemaker and weaver. Memorial Day is considered Shoemaker's Day.

This year, on a professional shoe festival, John Lobb introduced the Alwyn classic loafer model. The shoes are made from the noble leather of chocolate, ink-blue and deep wine shades. A distinctive detail of the model is a cross strap with a simple elegant buckle. The Alwyn model is available in the flagship John Lobb boutique in the capital's GUM.
