The method used to construct your shoes is the most important indicator of their quality. That is why we favor the Goodyear welt, a specific method that attaches the upper shoe to the sole, which guarantees the sole will never separate, the bottom is watertight, and they are fully resoleable.
Our approach to making you the highest quality shoes comes in three parts:
High quality shoes should be made from the best materials. Our full-grain leather comes from less-processed hide, which is more durable and looks better with age. We also use stacked leather heels, which are more durable and easier to resole.
When your shoes are handcrafted, an incredible amount of skill and care go into each pair. Each pair is a work of art, and no two pairs are alike. You'll notice unique details in your shoes, which were made just for you.
