Before shopping at Crockett & Jones for a pair of Tetbury shoes, I was in the process of ordering two pair of Church's shoes online, the Enmore and Diplomat models.

"Step into Bond's shoes" - quite literally! Bond (played by Pierce Brosnan) wears the Church's Presley monk-style shoes in the film The World is Not Enough.

The shoes that Bond wears during the Casino Royale Venice scene, seem to be a pair of Nike Air Articulate II. Another hard to find item, as these were already out of production at the time of the release of the film.

The shoes that Bond wears during the Casino Royale Madagaskar chase scene, are Converse Jack Purcell OTR (On The Road). Color: Chocolate and Paprika. For the film, it seems like the costume designer has removed or covered the orange marks on the front and back of the shoe.
