A take on the classic slipper but slightly updated with a handsewn apron. More comfortable than ever! First we removed the shoes structure and interior lining, this allows for greater breathability and flexibility. Perfect to keep your feet cool and comfortable for the spring and summer months ahead! Next we took the idea further and made our insoles slightly thinner, this removes some of the overall weight of the shoe. These small but purposeful changes allow for a lightweight, flexible, and comfortable, Goodyear welted shoe that will instantly become a staple in your wardrobe!
Our first impression when we started working with it, is that weve found this Shells to be softer & more flexible (pretty similar to the US-made one in terms of flexibility & tanning) than the Japanese one were also using. While, on the other hand, we found the Japanese Shell finish more natural & very transparent showing the different & beautiful hues of the Shell, while the Italian version is more regular in tone, but when sun-lightened up shows all its beauty. Different ways to produce the same incredible material & both great on its own way!
Now for the production of our Shell cordovan shoes & boots, we even use French calf for the lining & 100% leather heel counters! To get an even better, more comfortable & long lasting shoe.
Our shoes & boots are Goodyear Welted following traditional techniques by skillful artisans. This loafers are made to last and to just get better looking & more confortable over the time. As all our shoes, this loafer is fully leather lined & made using full grain vegetable tanned leather insoles.
Goodyear welted on our classic loafer RON last , that is perfectly balanced for loafers. Finished with a beautiful chestnut tanned leather sole! As all our leather soled shoes featuring a convenient close channel sole stich.
