Our full grain leathers
We only use full-grain leathers to make our shoes: this is the upper part of the skin, dense and smooth, which did not go through any post-tanning alteration. Guaranteeing unrivalled strength, softness and feel to the touch, this process is the noblest that can be applied to leather while maintaining a certain level of roughness for a unique effect. Its aniline finish delivers a unique patina over time, one that reveals intense hues.
Our leather sole with injected pad
Our soles are made by highly skilled craftsmen in Portugal and respect the traditional savoir-faire. In leather, hand-cut with a template cutter, then welded to the stem, they are fitted with an injected rubber pad for optimal grip. Thin and supple, they automatically give a sleek look to your shoes.
Our reinforcement grommets
This model has reinforced metal grommets. Not only are they gorgeous but they also protect the laces from wear and tear by adding a protection between the puncture of the leather and the waxed cotton of the lace. They add a vintage touch and an adventurous twist to your favorite boots.
Our waxed cotton laces
With our ultra-strong waxed cotton laces, you can completely trust your shoes. With their premium reinforced tip, these laces won't break. To pick another color or indulge, you can find them for sale in our Cobbler section.
Our production workshops in Portugal
We work hand-in-hand with family-owned workshops every day to develop the most perfect and comfortable models with the finest finishes. Each workshop is selected for its own specific traditional know-how: the variety of the steps needed to create a studded moccasin, the technicality of a Strobel-made sneaker, the expertise of the perfect arch of our heels or even the mastery of the upside down assembly that offers unrivalled suppleness to our ballet flats and slippers.
