Spring Affair

As we cross over to the Spring, our team of artisans has produced a small batch of three new Goodyear-welted masterpieces.

Our first shoe is the Luis Balmoral Derby in our popular Espresso patina, a dark brown to milky brown reverse handmade patina.

Luis features our soft square chiseled toe last, four eyelet lacing, and decorative brogues and gimping on the cap toe and balmoral seam.

The vamp, tongue, lower quarters, and heel counter are one piece of leather which wrap around the shoe with the seam hidden at the inner heel. This pattern requires a larger cut of leather and is harder to produce in large quantities since not as many pieces can be cut from the same leather.

The reno calf upper, with darker crevices that contrast with the lighter tones at the top of each grain, combined with the added body of the storm welt, give the entire shoe a wonderful texture and create a slightly bolder silhouette.

The resulting design of the Luis Balmoral Derby matches beautifully when dressed up with work attire or dressed down casually for the weekend.

Our second carefully crafted batch of shoes is the Decon Chelsea Boot in repello suede from Charles F Stead and a handmade Toro patina.

The Decon Chelsea Boot is our flagship boot known for it’s sleek silhouette, and handsomely chiseled toe box combined with an elongated vamp.

The Goodyear-welted boot sports two eyelet facings, which is not only a stunning design detail that is unique to our Chelsea boot but also serves a functional purpose -- The facings give additional ankle support, that combined with the double gore elastic, deliver a glove-like fit.

The elongated vamp and chiseled toe-box are the perfect canvas for our reverse patina, this time with a new Toro patina, a rich black and burgundy handmade patina. The charming patina complements the blues and greys of traditional suiting beautifully and will look wonderful when worn with dark denim.

Our last shoe is our Andres Adelaide Oxford in a warm chestnut handmade patina.

Andrés features our elegant chiseled toe, an asymmetric pattern with no center back seam, a thinly carved waist, a quilted and padded insole, and a hand painted leather sole in purple.

Country calf leather adorns the facings and adds a tactile element that is a nice touch both literally and aesthetically.

The graceful swan seam of this elegant Adelaide compliments the natural shape of the foot and brogue accents delineates the facings and quarters.

We selected our handmade chestnut patina which is a medium brown patina that looks great with a suit and can spruce up a casual outfit on the weekends.

Each Goodyear-welted pair of Luis Balmoral DerbiesDecon Chelsea Boots and Andres Adelaide Oxfords are meticulously hand-finished to perfection before shipment. This artisanal process includes the use of fire, iron tools, sandpapers, waxes, creams and dyes to deliver a bespoke level finishing for every masterpiece.
