This crepe soled shoe is made from a natural rubber.  It is often mistaken as a creeper or brothel creeper style shoe as favoured by Teddy Boys which it is not strictly speaking.  The thickness of the sole is an illusion and a clever trick. The sole is in fact normal thickness of 2cm but the added thickness is due to the raised edges known as foxing creating the illusion of a platform creeper-like sole. There aren’t many factories left in the world that can carry out this technique in natural rubber.

The Gordon is available in white leather in sizes 7 to 12
