Norwegian welted unlined soft loafer. This is a very special shoe because Norwegian construction is usually found on very heavy shoes or boots. This is like a slipper that can be resoled. The textured calfskin leather is very soft and flexible. The clean and minimal details means it is very versatile and can be dressed up or worn with ghost socks with jeans or cotton pants.

  • 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 together by hand. There are very few workshops still doing Norwegian welting.
  • Made from top quality box calf, all our calfskin shoes are tricked by hand and lasted for a minimum of two weeks.
  • These shoes have the "Sugharina" cork innerbedding which makes the shoes very comfortable.
  • The toes of the soles are tapped with nails which help reduce the wear of the toe area.
  • The inside corner of the heel is clipped to avoid catching on the cuffs of your pants.
  • The shoes are hand-burnished using numerous different colored polishes and creams. The smokey finish is helped by the use of alcohol (champagne).
  • This model will fit big due to the fact that it is unlined and very soft.
  • We recommend a half size smaller than normal.
  • 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.
