SB221 Deco Reverse Sombrero Norwegian
COLOR: Reverse Sombrero
This derby has some added interest in the broguing found along the toe box. It is made in a Norwegian welt construction which utilizes threads of yarn which are woven together with beeswax and glue and are used to sew all three layers of the shoe together by hand. This is a very unique shoe that can be dressed up or thanks to the Norwegian stitching worn casually.
For norwegian welted construction, we take 8 strands of yarn and weave them together with bees wax and glue and stitch the upper, the welt, and the sole toether by hand. Easily recognizable by the row of stitching along the base of the upper, Norwegian Welted benchmade shoes are produced by a handful of Italian shoemakers that covet the hand sewn aesthetic. There are very few workshops still doing Norwegian welting.
Lace up Oxfords are the most common lace ups. This shoe will fit true to size.
We recommend using a neutral cream on a bi-weekly basis and neutral polish when a shine is required. Neutral is recommended so as not to alter the special coloration of this shoe. We recommend Saphir polishes and creams. Quality shoe trees are recommended after every wear and when storing. Shoe trees will help mitigate wrinkling and help wick away moisture.
We recommend not wearing these shoes two days in a row allowing the shoes to rest and wick away moisture.
Coloration and Finishing
Please note our shoes are colored by hand and each pair will show small variations in color due to this meticulous and time consuming hand coloration process. Please also note that lighting will also effect the representation of our products when viewed online through different computers and phones.
We live in a world of mass production but DiBianco is not part of that world. We are proud to hand finish our products and beautiful variances will occur, which we believe makes them even more special.
Although we try to represent the optimal color online, we cannot guarantee the color of your item will match 100%. If you would like to have a better idea of your desired shoe’s actual finish please feel free to email us and we will be happy to send pictures.
