D Lewis Creepers by George Cox Black

Lewis Leathers has teamed up with George Cox Footwear- makers of fine quality, hand-crafted footwear Northamptonshire, England since 1906.

Inspired by the hard wearing and insulating crepe soled boots worn by British soldiers stationed in the deserts of North Africa during WWII, the ‘Brothel Creeper’ was developed and first made in 1949 by George Cox, originally under the Hamilton name.

The smart cut and distinctive raised sole proved popular with the Teddy Boys in the 1950s and again in the 1970s with wearers such as Malcolm McLaren, the Sex Pistols and The Clash. Their popularity had endured to this day, worn all over the world and recently by actors Ewan McGregor and Johnny Depp.
