A look at the footwear brands set to appear in No Time to Die spotted during filming.
A few days before shooting commenced on the 25th James Bond movie the producers launched No Time to Die at an event at Goldeneye. The film, known at the time simply as Bond 25, marked the first time since Live And Let Die in 1973 that the series filmed in Jamaica. Fittingly Ian Fleming’s holiday home was chosen as the launch event, with filming taking place nearby in the following weeks.
After Daniel Craig was spotted filming in Port Antonio in late April 2019 his clothing, including the first No Time to Die shoes, was soon identified. On his feet were a pair of tan boat shoes, which matched his casual attire. These were quickly identified as Sperry Gold Cup Authentic Original Rivingston.
The two-eye design features a full-grain nubuck leather, which is tumbled to soften the shoes and give them a textured look. They are hand sewn with comfortable lambskin lining and feature Sperry’s razor-cut sole which prevents slipping in the wet.
After the shoot in Jamaica the main unit returned to the UK. During June 2019 Daniel Craig was once again on location in London and, once again, was shod in Crockett & Jones Highbury. The black calfskin three-eyelet Derby has Crocket & Jones’ rubber “City” sole, which is both comfortable and hard wearing.
While Craig wore the Highbury in both Skyfall and SPECTRE his shoes had a Dainite sole. While Crocket & Jones no longer provide this option in their catalogue they can make them on special order.
During August and September filming moved to southern Italy. Several locations were used but most filming was in Matera.
During these scenes Daniel Craig wears dark brown suede chukka boots, later identified as Drake’s Crosby Moc-Toe Chuckka Boot. These Italian made boots are feature moccasin style stitching and crepe rubber soles.
External shots of Daniel Craig wearing military style clothing were also filmed in Italy, with further interiors released early in 2020. In these Bond wears a British military style sweater, black combat trousers and black boots.
The boots were provided by Danner and appear to be the Tanicus military model, although those are not actually available in black. They may have provided custom boots for filming, have been coloured by the costume department or an option that will be offered on the film’s release.
