Long Wingtip Blucher
All of our shoes, boots, bags and leather goods are handmade in Spain. Our manufacturer produces quality leather goods for the most recognized and luxurious brands in Italy and France; like Armani, Gucci and Hermes. Excellence in craftsmanship has been at the very heart of our products for almost 90 years.
We only use the finest leathers, suedes and sartorial fabrics from our Italian tannery. The tannery dates back more than 100 years. Founded in 1865, they have been dedicated exclusively to the tanning of superior quality leather for international top brands like Gaziano & Girling, Crocket & Jones, Gucci and Hermes, just to name a few.
Our shoes feature blake welt and goodyear welt construction methods. On shoes constructed with Blake welting, the upper component of the shoe is stretched around the insole, and then a single stitch binds the outsole, insole, and upper together. Because the welt is stitched within the interior of the shoe, Blake welting requires a specialized machine to stitch the sole to the upper.
Goodyear Welted construction get its strength, durability and repair qualities by stitching the upper leather, lining leather and welt (a specially prepared piece of leather) to the ribbing that has already been bonded to the insole. The welt is then stitched to the leather or rubber sole. It is this final stitch, holding the sole in place, which we can cut through enabling complete removal of the sole without causing damaging the upper. The Goodyear Welted construction is expensive, time consuming and requires highly skilled craftsmanship. Invented hundreds of years ago, it is still considered one of the finest method of shoe construction today.
