Manufacturing process

All of our shoes are made using the traditional Goodyear stitch and are submitted to a strict quality control process. The shoes are made by a team of skilled craftsmen who carefully handle each stage of production:

1

Creating

the last


After completing an ergonomic analysis of the foot to combine comfort and aesthetic, the master last-maker creates a wooden mould by hand.All of our shoes are made using the traditional Goodyear stitch and are submitted to a strict quality control process. The shoes are made by a team of skilled craftsmen who carefully handle each stage of production:

2

Tracing

the pattern


Tracing patterns from the wooden last is a traditional method very rarely done by manufacturers nowadays. It consists on drawing the model directly onto the wooden shoe last.

3

Creating

the pattern


The lines traced on the last in three dimensions are tessellated onto a pattern. These patterns are then used to indicate the clipping of the leather and the lining.

4

Selecting

the materials

We use carefully selected materials from only the best providers. They are always stored at the same temperature so that they acquire the texture needed for clicking. We specialised in treating shell cordovan leather, an exclusive leather of exquisite quality.

5

CLICKING


Clicking (cutting) is always done by hand for each individual piece and pair. Each piece is skived for evenness and to guarantee a perfect assembly and stitch.

6

Closing


All pieces, including the lining and reinforcements, are carefully sewn together with cotton and acrylic to ensure that the backstitch is as tense as possible, which in turn guarantees long-lasting quality.

7

Assembly


The leather is fitted over the last in a semimanual process. With the help of humid heat, the leather is perfectly moulded to the volume and shape of the last. Once assembled, the shoe is left on the last for four days, so that it will acquire the permanent form that ensures its durability.

8

Stitching

the welts and soles


The welt (connection between sole and upper shoe) is stitched and the gap it leaves is filled with a natural compound of cork and ground sole leather that is 1-centimetre thick. Given the malleable properties of this compound, the cork filling will settle into each client's sole shape for maximum comfort.

9

De-welting

or edge evening


The next step is evening out the edges of the platform, preparing the shoe for the heel attachment. This is done with layers of sole laid one upon the other to obtain a compact body that will never crack or shift.

10

Painting

and shine


The sole edges and undersides are painted with wax and carnauba palm wax dyes to obtain a natural, long-lasting shine that embellishes the shoe.

11

Finishing

touches


The leather is treated with waxes and beeswaxes with ermine-hair brushes and tinsel cloth. This is how we obtain the multi-toned polish, avoiding a uniform brilliancy and achieving the patina of a used shoe.
