We are making available any ready made shoes we have of our current collection of leathers. We typically make each shoe to order, but occasionally we premake some pairs, make random sizes of a sold out leather, or have exchanges that come back. The shoes are in original condition.

This shoe will ship to you within 5-7 business days from the US (for European addresses, please email before ordering as these items will ship from the US).The Mussenden is a nod to the mens classic monkstrap shoe popular in the 1920s to 1940's. The style allows for a secure fit even for clients with a low instep.

This style is available to be made in a 2cm and a 3cm stacked leather heel.

Custom: The Mussenden can be custom made by selecting up to 2 leather options. The front can be made with any leather, while the back should be made with a leather that is waxy or firm to hold the closures. Gloveskin or Drapey leathers are not ideal for areas with laces or closures.

    Character: This leather is a beautifully luxurious hair on cow leather meticulously dyed and tanned in Italy.  It is soft, spongy, thick, and cozy.  For shoes, the leather contracts quite a bit once the last is removed, so a very snug initial fit is recommended to allow it to stretch well.  Hair on leather is not what is considered "Fur".  It is cow leather where the hair is not removed (as in typical leathers).

    Hair on leathers are print dyed on the surface of the hair, so edges where the hair has been cut can have variation in the look of the print.

    Care: It is best to use a suede brush or a damp cloth.

    This leather is sourced from a family run company in Barcelona. All of their leather is tanned within Europe, using European steer.  This particular one is tanned in Italy with strict European standards by one of the premiere tanneries specializing in hair on cow leathers.

      There are inherent variations in natural leathers, handmade manufacturing, and local sourcing.  Color and texture variations can vary within the same hide.  Different monitors can also display colors differently.  You may indicate any preferences in tone or texture in the Notes to Shoemaker section if you are looking for something specific so we can do our best to accomodate.

        Character: This leather is thick and waxy with lots of body from it's veg tannage, giving it great pliability with a nice structure with a matte finish.  The tumbling process keeps the leather soft and supple.  It is a waxier, thick leather, making it great for all seasons and darker colors are more resistant to water stains with waxing care.

        Care: This is best conditioned with a good quality liquid saddlesoap. Darker colors can be conditioned or cleaned with a shoe wax as well. Using wax regularly on the darker colors help keept it more resistant to water penetration.  Be sure to test a small area prior to using.

        This leather is from a tannery in the Tuscan region of Italy. They make only 100% Vegetable Tanned leathers and bear the Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana mark which are the strictest standards in traditional leather tanning and environmental standards. Their labor standards are also certified.
