The Buckle version of The Jam shoes we haven’t seen in years, The Jam wore these numerous times up to I think late 1980. Certainly the pic on the inside of SNAP has them featured, in the fridge !
We have done these with the holes in the front. There is a slight change at the top of the vamp, this has been done because to accommodate the foot better, and provide more lasting comfort.
I have been told by Buckler, they brought their first pairs on Carnaby Street, he thinks Sherry’s. I have also been told that at that time, it would have been ‘Acme Productions’. Buckler did tell me as well that when they went to get them, “it was a case of getting some shoes to suit our style”.
Our ones are made for us by the same people that make the Shelby boots, and ours are different in the sole is etched with the famous Rickenbacker Guitars, and the ‘Fire & Skill’ which Weller had on his amp back then.

We use the following size conversions. Please be aware that different designs are designed to be bigger than others. We try our best on the product page to mention sizing.
Please Note that are shoes are made mainly in Spain & Portugal and Euro to UK Conversion means that the shoes normally come up a little big. The reason is that a 43, is more like 9 and 1/4.
