Solovair x Fred Perry x George Cox

The history of the monkey boot goes back a fair way; to WW2 in fact when they were worn by the Czechoslovak army. In more recent times the boots were adopted by Carpenters and Roofers, the unique toe cap design enables work to be carried out comfortably in a kneeling position. The monkey boot is still today a popular style amongst British subcultures.

We are proud to have been the manufacturers for the Fred Perry x George Cox monkey boots, each one was handcrafted here at our factory in Wollaston, Northamptonshire using the Goodyear Welt construction method offering strength, durability and flexibility.
