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. There are very few workshops still doing Norwegian welting.
This model will fit true to size. However, as loafers do not have laces or a strap to keep the foot in place, if you have a low instep or narrow foot you may need to size down a half size. Minimal or no slip in the heel indicates a proper fit.
We recommend a soft bristle brush to clean off any water stains or dirt. 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.
