Re: Hutton Desert boots

Where can you buy the Playboys from? The website has no shop?

These are the Sanders ones mate. Not sure if you are after the Huttons though. They also do them in a shop in Piccadilly Arcade in London

Black would work better in leather I think.

You're probably right, however as I don't like black shoes or leather desert boots, I won't be too excited should they ever come into existence.

If you want to buy the Playboy chukka boots I posted a photo of, which are the ones made by Playboy Footwear in Denmark who owns the original design patents and trademark rights to the original Hutton Playboy chukkas, then here is a link to Lester Store in Sweden where I bought mine from http://www.lesterstore.com/our-brands/playboy.

These boots are only currently sold in Scandinavia, but Lester Store ships to anywhere in the world, and are very helpful.

Playboy Footwear will re-introduce the black leather Playboy shoes and chukka boots in August for their Autumn/Winter range.

Thank you both for the links. I'm not sure which I prefer now...

Re: Hutton Desert boots

waz66 did you read the Quality of Crepes thread, has a lot of history about the shoe on there.

Personally find the Danish shoe too heavy in it's style, not dissimilar to the George Cox version. The current Sanders shoe is the most elegant and if you can source a pair of the round toed (asian market) shoes/chukkas then they work well with casual wear, the regular Joel last tends to be a bit smarted with the refined toe box.

So back to the post, yes they have refined the foxing but it still looks like a bumper car, when you look at the original Hutton (the dark brown shoe in the photos) it has a much lower crepe area and the nearest I have seen to this in newer example is this vintage pair of Sanders I scored from an ex-Sanders employee's brother, not sure of the date on these, they are the round toe Sno last and don't have the leather strip but i'm pretty sure they a goodyear welted.

Re: Hutton Desert boots

Looking on that Lestor store link, they still have the old style crepe boot in the sale (top pic). The updated crepe sole (bottom pic) is certainly an improvement on the old version. Less chunky and more rounded, although still chunkier than the originals back in the day.

I have both the Sanders Hi Top chukka boots in Snuff suede, as well as my new Playboy Original chukka boots in cognac suede, I prefer the Playboy Originals better as I find the toes on the Sanders Hi Top too pointed, I prefer the rounder front of the Playboy much more. They are both exceptionally made, and I have many pairs of English made shoes and boots. Warren

I remember Dolcis shoe shops here in the Uk very well gorowing up as a boy in the 70's, and when I was around 22 or 23 they went out of business, or were bought up by another shoe shop company. Those Dolcis/Hutton Playboy of yours are really nice, great find. I did not know about the rounder toed Asian market ones, that's a new one on me, I'm guessing Sanders don't make that model anymore.

No I haven't seen or read the Quality of Crepes thread, I haven't found that yet, and have been visiting this forum for quite a few years before I registered. I've been into the Hutton Playboy Chukkas and McQueen's clothing since I first saw Bullitt when I was 8 in 1974, and became a mod here in the UK when I was 14, but at that time my feet were way too small for a Uk size 6, and when I was that size, Hutton were already out of business, and never seem to find and original Hutton pair.

Re: Hutton Desert boots

In my opinion the crepe comes up too high both on the current Sanders and the Swedish Playboys. The vintage examples that Tom posted are perfect.

By the way it looks like Oi Polloi has a run of the Sanders on the Sno last: https://www.oipolloi.com/collections/sa … 17#product

Re: Hutton Desert boots

Forgot how much I fancied a pair of decent brown suede playboy boots (for some reason I don't wear brown desert boots, just the cola and sand).

Unfortunately I'd forgotten how many ugly versions of playboy boots exist! Platform-like soles, point-ish toes, etc.

They look much better than my Sanders playboys which are a bit pointy by comparison.
