Here is another great piece from the collection George Cox has created for Oki-Ni with a Creeper Boot. The beige suede hi top brothel creepers are placed on a thick plantation crepe sole, and have some nice detailing with the red leather heel stripe, d-ring laces and woven creeper toe detail.
When George Hamilton Cox made his first ‘creepers’ in 1949 it caused a few raised eyebrows. It’s a fad, some people said. It’ll never last. Over 50 years later, George Cox are still making creepers. They still use the same Goodyear Welted construction, stitching the welt to the insole through the upper and the lining. The insole is still bedded on a layer of filler, so it moulds to the shape of your foot. And the sole is still made from natural plantation crepe. Small wonder, then, that their creepers bear the British Goodyear Welted Seal of Excellence.
