Men’s classic footwear
For any man handmade footwear is synonymous to timeless quality. The fact that most of the top shoemaking companies have existed since the 19th century is just another confirmation of that.
Footwear production in the UK
For more than 150 years the production of classic handmade shoes has been concentrated in European centres of shoemaking industry, which are the UK (Northamptonshire) and Spain (Almansa).
In 1871 Charles Goodyear Jr. invented a machine (and registered the patent on it), which made it much faster and easier to produce welted footwear. Today his name designates the technology used for manual production of footwear, which is both beautiful, comfortable to wear and exclusively durable.
At about the same time a lot of factories appear in the UK. At some of them the traditions of quality and comfort characteristic for the shoe styles from the brand have been thoroughly maintained by five or six generations of artisans. It is not rare that today’s owners of the factory are the descendants of the founders of the production
Handicraft and Goodyear Welted technology
British shoes for men are produced according to traditional Goodyear Welted technology, which has been known in the UK for over 300 years. The process of producing one pair of shoes according to Goodyear Welted technology takes about 8 weeks. Each pair of footwear is created by 130 different craftspeople, who perform about 200 various operations aimed at closing the elements of the shoes. Men’s British shoes produced according to Goodyear Welted technology can be completely repaired. The craftspeople can replace a worn-out detail or re-dye the leather so that your shoes look like new!
