We try to use the best possible leathers, which tend to be the most expensive leathers in the industry. We use traditional methods like partial blake construction, or good-year welting, which add years to your soles, but are some of the most expensive ways to make shoes.
On top of using top shelf materials, we make a very limited amount of shoes, usually factory minimums which can be quite expensive. It’s the difference between the productions of Ferraris versus Honda Civics; both are great cars but one is singularly fine tuned while the other is mass-produced. After all these factors are put into place, and you realize only 100 people in the world might have the same specific model and colour in their closet as yours, you begin to wonder how we are able to keep the prices somewhat affordable?!
