Made using a Black Rapid construction which incorporates a second mid-sole, these can be resoled again and again but are not as heavy as a goodyear welted shoe.
Made from top quality box calf, all our calfskin shoes are tricked by hand and lasted for a minimum of two weeks.
All our Premium shoes have the "Sugharina" cork innerbedding which makes the shoes very comfortable.
Premium models have a bi-color (grey and brown) sole as well as grey innersocks and linings.
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 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.
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.
When your shoes need resoling or refurbishing return them to us for this service.
