"The European charm that triumphs all over the world"

Following the favorable reception of our model The Lemmon, at Crownhill Shoes we have worked hard to offer our customers an alternative that will surely satisfy buckle shoes lovers and especially those who have a weakness for the sophisticated appearance of the color burgundy. A very sophisticated and formal tone that not only fits perfectly with a good suit, but also with a more casual outfit where you can enjoy our free time without losing any elegance.

The design of The Franco Nero gives a captivating presence. Having this fringed tongue you will be on the spotlight, but we should also look at the exquisite decoration of its seams, its cut on the vamp on the Wing Tip style and the brogue with decorative stitches over the toe cap.

These Goodyear dress shoes are handmade in Spain, following the traditional techniques of the greatest footwear masters. The double stitching that characterizes this method of construction guarantees an astonishing resistance, while the Nelson last that has been used for its confection has a very stylized last to the taste of the true gentlemen. The leather outsole Joh. Rendenbach, with hidden seams and great tolerance to wear, includes a double leather shank to give greater stability to the tread and an inner layer of resin cork that adapts to the morphology of each foot.


"The perfect daily shoe for any season of the year"

Comfort and an incomparable finish, these are the signs of identity of our Derby in mocca suede, The Munich. Handmade in Spain, the closing of the leaves of this model makes them perfect for gentlemen with wide instep. The drawing of the wing tip emphasizes its dynamic character, while the full brogue gives style and modernity to the classicism of the cut. This is an ideal shoe to wear during the sun hours along side with a pair of jeans or a tweed suit.

Whether with a pair of jeans or a tweed suit, The Munich is the perfect shoe to wear when the sun is shining. The fabrication with suede makes them ideal to use them as a daily shoe or for any season of the year.

The Munich is a shoe with laces fabricated following an artisanal process and following a Blake construction. Cut with suede of the first qualities, comes mounted in our Wellesley last, and we obtain a slightly wider shoe and with a sharper cutting edge. Inside the shoe is lined with leather vegetable tanned calf. The sole leather is tanned with oak and comes with an embedded Spy, ideal for wet surfaces. In addition, our patented FlexiComfort system will absorb the weight of the foot making your feet comfortable and you won’t pay the bill for the long days at the office.


All our Premium Grade Line shoes are made of leather and suede boxcalf from the best tanneries in the world as Haas, Degermann, D´Annonay, Weinheimer, Roux, Museum calf, Zonta and Ilcea. This guarantees a color, texture and smell hard to match. All the details of the shoe are taken care to the fullest, a prove of this is that the shoe seams are hidden and that the thread is coated with pure beeswax to close the stitch and thus is completely sealed. This process also got the sole remains more solidly stitched. Furthermore, the tab carries an incision on the side that is sewn to the liner to prevent it from being moved from its position.

Now look at the ultra-flexible 4.5 mm thick soles manufactured handmade by Johann Rendenbach Jr., tanned with oak roots and oak-bark and finished oil in recent months to give it more elasticity.


Also the floor of our Premium Grade Line shoe has a leather-soled with 4 mm a bevel on the wall in the tradition of hand Welted shoes. This ensures special comfort and durability. The sole is hand dyed in the form of a dove in reddish brown and black.

The heel is fixed with cloves hammered into shape of rose to ensure that you never fall while decorates. Meanwhile the rubber also has cloves with a crescent-shaped that gives stability and durability. All our Premium line has two shanks, one made in metal and other in leather, reinforcing the shoe structure, so we got an unmatched stability in every step, coupled with a unique aesthetic.

Our passion is the shoes, but we know that the perfection is find in the little things. From Crownhill Shoes, we take care of our presentation to the fullest, this is why, all of our shoes come in a elegant and sober black box with our logo and the name of the brand.

Inside the box you will find a shoehorn in which you can put on your shoes comfortably and avoid any damage in the counter fort. A good shoe must always put on with a shoehorn.

You will also find an elegant black bag made with Italian cotton in order to save your shoes and protect them from the dirt, scratches and the direct light which in time may damage the skin of the shoes. Also, our cotton bag is ideal to take your shoes with you wherever you go without losing style.
