A Tribute to Steve McQueen

English shoe design since 1936

The Original Playboy brand dates back to 1936 when the first shoes were manufactured by English shoemaker Hutton in Northampton, England, an area renowned for the best shoemaking in the world.

More than 80 years later, the shoes are still manufactured based on the old construction with more than 200 manual processes requiring high levels of classic shoemaking skills. It’s one of the most complicated shoes to manufacture, especially when it comes to attaching the characteristic piping and crepe foxing.

Iconic shoes worn by legends

The Original Playboys reached icon status almost from the beginning, which was largely attributed to Hollywood stars who took a liking to the shoes, in particular one of the World’s hottest actors, Steve McQueen, nicknamed The King of Cool, who wore the Original Playboy chukkas in the 50s and well into the 70s both on and off screen.
