Please note: Brasil Nero is sometimes hand dyed so the cut edges are not black.  We find that hand dyeing allows zero color transference to your feet or socks when damp.  See last pic above for look and add a note if you require a dyed thru leather.

The Javian is a classic mary jane transformed with our quintessential comfort. The laces are made with Kangaroo leather from Australia which has the highest tencile strength while staying soft and pliable.

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

Custom: The Javian 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 laces. Gloveskin or Drapey leathers are not ideal for areas with laces or closures.

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.

    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 a family run sole manufacturer in Portugal in an area reknowned as one of the shoemaking capitals in Europe. Our soles and heels are made of Italian vegetable tanned leather. The heels are stacked leather or wood, no hollow plastic core heels, and rubber slip resistance.  

      We manufacture in Europe so have highest standards in glue safety, toulene free.

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

       

      Most people wear a varied range of sizes amongst brands.
      Please refer to the size suggestion in the listing of the shoe (next to the size selector).
      Your size range typically gives insight to the needs of your feet.  For example, your smallest size typically indicates your length, while the largest size you wear can give insight to the movement or volume of your feet.
      Our size recommendations by style are guided by the pattern of the shoe and what keeps them most comfortable.

      WIDE LASTING:

      Wide lasted shoes do not have a wider footprint, but instead increase the volume around the width and arch to the size larger while maintaining the length.

      A STORY ON SIZING:

      I typically wear a size 9.5US to 10US (40/41EU) in factory made shoes.  Factory made shoes typically have a stiff plastic layer between the leathers which aggravate my toes and heels.  

      My length measurement is 255mm, which is a 39EU by our size guide, matching my size in my early adult years.

      Comparing those two bits of info, I am a 39 by length, but need the volume of a 40/41 now as my joints have spread and my feet have become wider, so I opt for a 39 WIDE in our shoes and boots WITH NO LACES OR STRAPS.  For shoe WITH LACES OR STRAPS, I can securely wear a 40 standard and just make the laces/strap snug to fit.  Since I have a high instep, I can wear a 40 standard width in our Sandy style as my instep takes up some length

      For our mules and sandals, I am comfortable in the largest of my factory size range, so a 41.
