Our upper leather is sourced from three tanneries. Horse leather from Italy, Bison leather form Colorado and our soling leathers from Germany.
We use calf leather for linings and uppers. Horse-front or Cordovan for upper. Bison leather for uppers.
We employ two methods of construction.
Goodyear-welted. Here a welt is stitched to the insole then the sole is stitched to the welt.
Blake stitched is where the sole and insole are stitched together here you can see the stitch on the insole of the shoe.
All our upper and lining leather is vegetable tanned. This tanning method ensures sustainability, breathability, longevity and comfort.
Our soles, insoles, heel counters and toe puffs are all leather and are oak bark tanned by J Reddenbach in Germany.
