Sir Watson and Mr. Parker were on many voyages and journeys in distant lands through the British Navy. All the experiences they had gained on their travels were contained in the garments they wore: in their mannerisms, their clothes, the original shoes they designed and handcrafted for their adventures in uncharted lands. In fact, Watson&Parker shoes embody the essence of British nature and common sense in the spirit and emotions of the world. The shoes are sewn by hand in Europe in their own production. The style is hardly used today and is called San Crispino.
