Character: This leather is part of our gloveskin collection. It is uniquely thin, yet very strong and uniquely pliable.  

If looking to request this leather for Custom Leather shoes, this type of leather is best suited for parts of the shoe with no laces or closures.

Care: This is best conditioned with a good quality liquid saddlesoap. Darker colors can be conditioned or cleaned with a shoe wax as well. Be sure to test a small area prior to using.

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.

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.

    Our insoles are cut from a thicker vegetable tanned leather than typical shoes to help with breathability and shock absorption. 

    The midsole, which serves as the chassis for a shoe, is also made of a vegetable tanned soling leather sourced from the US and Spain (we never use the typical factory cardboard).  The material is also ideal for bacteria and odor prevention and great shock absorption. 

    Between the soles is a layer of cork.

    Our soles are sourced from small fabricators in Southern Spain. The town of Elda is world reknowned as the shoemaking capital of Spain. Our soles and heels are made of Spanish and Italian vegetable tanned leather. The heels are stacked leather or wood, no hollow plastic core heels, and we add a layer of rubber under the heel for slip resistance.  

    We use only Toluene free glues in our work.  Sourced from Germany or Spain.

    Makers: Our shoemakers are the absolute heart of our work. Handlasted shoes require a deep understanding of the leather as it is being stretched and formed around the mold.  Read more on our small and wonderful team of craftsmen here.
