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.

Back on an unusually bright October’s day, we spent an afternoon with Bradley Wiggins at a local working men’s club. This was technically work – we were there to shoot Bradley’s Spring 2013 Collection – but there was a laid back feel to the day, with Bradley’s friend and Team Sky’s official photographer Scott Mitchell behind the camera and the club’s staff casually asking the champion cyclist if he’d care to join their darts team.
Scott and Bradley prepare the next shot.
The location - the Mildmay Working Men's Club, Islington.
Bradley contributes to our 60 Year Anniversary project.
On set - much of the club's interior has kept it's original features.
On set - the dancehall.
Bradley was typically down to earth, with none of the airs or graces you might expect from a man who had just won the Tour de France and several gold medals at the Olympics. During the set-up of an outdoor shot, two teens sped past on bikes yelling "who are you then?" which amused the soon to be Knighted cyclist no end.
