Step 4: Sole

The sole is an equally important element of the shoe, as it can determine the final look and versatility of the shoe. With many years of experience, we can help you choose the right sole for your needs. While some people prefer the feeling of walking on a leather sole, others swear by a full rubber sole or rubber topy. We offer a number of different options, suited for every occasion.

Leather Sole - Round Waist

Metal Toe Tip

Metal toe tips, installed flush with the sole and screwed into place. A very classic optio

Step 5: Extra's

This final step is all about the details that will make your shoes complete, and allow you to enjoy them for many years to come. A tapered heel adds a further touch of elegance to the shoe, which may or may not be preferred. Burnishing the heel and toe brings out the depth in the leather and makes the shoes come to live. We always recommend to choose at least the option of lasted shoe trees, as they are the single most important element in preserving the shape of your shoes.

Tapered Heel

With the option for a  tapered heel, the side wall of the heel tapers inwards, and accentuates the elegance of the shoe.

Burnished Toe / Heel

To further enhance the depth of the leather, we offer the possibility to have the toe or heel area (or both) burnished to a slightly darker shade.

Lasted Shoe Trees

Lasted shoe trees are without a doubt the most important element to keep your shoes looking like new over a long period of time.

Premium Lasted Shoe Trees

The premium version of our lasted shoe trees feature a hollowed out front part, in order for moisture to evaporate more quickly.
