Craftsmanship

Our shoemakers have worked with us for over three decades.

Today, they are a team of craftsmen who make a quality shoe with great attention to detail.

Each pair alone requires over 48 hours to make and involves many steps.

Here's a quick peak of the process:

Materials

Each piece of leather is individually inspected for any defects before start.

Cutting

Based on the flat patterns from the design, individual components of the shoe upper are cut out.

Each piece of leather is tagged to ensure that all pieces going into one shoe match one other in color tone, grain pattern, etc. as these can all vary.

The stitching and perforation guides are hand drawn.

Lasting

Once the individual components are stitched together to form the shoe upper (along with the lining), the upper is then molded onto a last where the midsole is attached.

Stitch Down

In the case of our stitch down shoes, such as the Joy mary jane, the midsole is carefully stitched to the upper.

Outsole

The outsole is then glued and secured to the upper.

For stitch down shoes, an extra step is required to shave down and smooth out the rubber on the sides. This step requires skill, so only those with years of experience are entrusted with this work.

Finishing Touch

Once the shoes are ready, they are inspected and brushed down one final time before they are packaged.
