How do we do it?
Truly premium leathers
We hand-select each full-grain calfskin leather used for our uppers. Each pair is fully lined with supple calfskin to keep your feet dry and cool. Our memory foam cushioned insole molds to your foot over time for all-day comfort.
Our shoes are beautiful and functional. The Blake Flex construction makes our shoes flexible, light, and allows us to give our shoes a sleeker modern design. The outsole is stitched to the upper and can be resoled for a lifetime of use.
Sizes that fit
We started with our proprietary ACE last, then built around it. Our last is sleek, modern, and carefully constructed following the foot's natural curves to reduce common pressure points around the heel and mid-foot. We made it according to U.S. Brannock sizing so that our shoes fit true to size, no guessing or adjustments needed. Our sizing tools will add confidence to your sizing choice.
Hand-dyed & hand-burnished
Each pair is hand dyed & hand burnished by one of our master craftsmen. This delicate process can take hours and is what gives our shoes depth and richness of color. No two shoes are exactly alike, and each one bears the unique touch and artistry of the artisan that created it.
