Handcrafted in Spain

Walk like an Egyptian -like a first-class Egyptian pharaoh I’d say-  with these astonishing custom-engraved whole cuts.

Hand cut from raw high-grade Italian crust leather, shoe patterns are engraved with beautiful Egyptian hieroglyphic motifs. Applying natural dyes and oils -and lots of savoir-faire- our Maestro colourist achieves this unique and staggering look that we call “Museum” Patina. After much hand brushing and polishing, the glacé effect is jaw-dropping, as you can see on the pictures.

Original Goodyear welted using traditional techniques, they feature our classic leather sole. And it’s no coincidence that we chose the leather sole for this particular shoe: having the slimmest profile it’s often considered the dressiest of all them. Besides that, it’s hard wearing, flexible, practical, long-lasting and beautiful.

What to say about the last? Used on some of our most refined hand-finished shoes, the “Savile” shoe-last is the result of many rounds of refinement to create the perfect men’s formal last. Featuring a soft chisel toe and a long elegant vamp, this is a great go-to last for any classic suit shoe.

Original 360 Goodyear welted full calf interior and A-grade Italian crust leather. Gentlemen, it doesn’t get any better than this.

Original Goodyear Welt vs Blake Stitching

Original Goodyear Welted shoes have always been associated with excellence and superior workmanship. This construction process is expensive, time consuming and requires highly skilled craftsmanship.  For instance, more than 60 craftsmen are involved in the process of manufacturing one of our Goodyear shoes, requiring more than 120 production steps, from beginning to end

Invented hundreds of years ago, Goodyear is still considered one of the finest method of shoe construction today. The construction get its strength, durability and repair qualities by stitching the upper leather, lining leather and welt (a specially prepared piece of leather) to the ribbing that has already been bonded to the insole.  The welt is then stitched to the leather or rubber sole. It is this final stitch, holding the sole in place, which we can cut through enabling complete removal of the sole without causing damaging the upper.

Blake Stitching

Experts recognize Blake-stitched shoes by their soles: the insole is sewn directly to the outsole. Blake-stitched shoes such as loafers don’t have cork bottom fillers or any additional layers of insulation.

A special sewing machine is used for this shoe production method—this machine directly stitches through the outsole, insole and bottom edge of the shoe shaft, connecting them without using welts. Blake-stitched shoes don’t feature cork bottom fillers or additional layers of insulation, like Goodyear shoes. Loafers are a prime example of this kind of shoe. As opposed to Goodyear-welted men’s shoes, blake-stitched shoes are assembled in fewer steps.

What is Patina finishing?

Patina is an art crafted and designed for shoes by Olga Berluti, member of the famous French brand Berluti which took the world by storm in the 80’s.

Hand coloring of shoes was then a fairly new thing in the world of luxury shoes and leather products. The patina art craft method is a hand dyeing procedure of leather, which creates a completely unique patina with an aged effect.

The procedure begins with unfinished crust leather, which has been tanned and handled, but not dyed yet. The artist applies the dyes manually to the uncut hide and the fully assembled shoe, with the usage of white cloths, brushes and sometimes sponges, to create a unique look on each and every pair of shoes.

With attentive care and superior savoir-faire, a dedicated craftsman perfects the personality of each pair of shoes, helping forge their special “soul”

Entirely cut by hand

The Clicking Department is the first stage of production. The highly skilled Clickers (whose name derives from the “click|sound made when the knife is removed from the leather) use predetermined patterns to intricately cut the shoe’s uppers and linings. Each Clicker design and grind the blade of their knives to their own personal tast and working preference.

The Zurigo Shoe Last

This style is produced using our most famous shoe last, which features a round toe for a classic english look. The Zurigo last is a perfect choice for either a casual look or a more contemporary shape to wear with formal clothes. The classic fit and slight almond toe creates a beautiful last with a timeless and versatile shape.

The Monti Shoe Last

This style features the Monti shoe last, versatile and stylish in equal measure. With it’s long elegant vamp finishing with a soft chisel toe profile it is just as suited to casual Chelsea boots as it is formal lace up suit shoes. The classic nature of the toe shape means that it’s a timeless style statement.
