The George Cox Monkey Boot - click here to view
This week, we're pleased to introduce the George Cox Monkey Boot as part of our ongoing Friends of Fred project. Handmade at the company's Northamptonshire factory, these 14-hole lace ups have been crafted in high shine leather that develops its own individual character over time, improving with age.
Originally designed as a standard issue army boot, the Monkey Boot has been adopted by various subcultures throughout the decades, originally picked up by the late 60s mods before becoming a firm favourite with both men and women on the skinhead scene.
The boot's unique shape hugs the ankle and tapers to the toe, making it ideal teamed with straight leg denim and a classic gingham shirt or Harrington jacket. The George Cox style features a leather lining, dual branding on the inner sock and an additional pair of yellow laces to add a pop of colour if preferred. Available in maroon or black colour options, in UK sizes 6-11.

Photographer Ari Versluis and profiler Ellie Uyttenbroek will visit the Hyperlink Festival at London's Tate Modern this weekend, hosting two workshops alongside an open casting call to be a part of the duo's latest piece of work. Working as 'The Exactitudes' since 1994, Ari and Ellie have long been inspired by the dress codes adopted by various social groups, adopting an almost scientific approach to their archiving of street fashions.
The creative partners are one of the contributors to our 60 Year Anniversary Gallery, creating a unique customisation of our iconic Fred Perry shirt with multiple embroidered Laurel Wreaths on the chest. Join the duo at the Tate Modern this Saturday, to learn about their techniques and see a live portrait session with members of the public.
The Exactitudes photography workshops will take place this Sunday 28th April at the Clore Studio, Tate Modern, London. Find out more about the three day Hyperlink Festival here.
