These Export Grade shoes are made by a select, dedicated team of our very best shoemakers, so production is limited to a small number of pairs at a time. All styles feature uppers made from top grade calf skins, which are individually hand-selected and cut from the best selection possible.
Veg-tanned linings provide maximum absorption and dispersion of perspiration for optimum foot comfort.
Fully stitched leather soles are intricately hand-decorated and reveal a painted two-tone stain and fiddle-back waists for a more refined and elegant shape. Heels are built from veg-tanned leather and incorporate a quarter rubber tip and decorative brass nails. Finally the shoes are hand-burnished and finger polished for a deep shine and fitted with premium flat waxed cotton laces.
