Soles: Our soles are sourced from Southern Spain. The town of Elda is world reknowned as the shoemaking capital of Spain. Our soles and heels are made of vegetable tanned leather tanned only in Spain or Italy. The heels are stacked leather or wood, no plastic core heels.
Makers: Our shoemakers are the 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.

As a general rule, we recommend you go with the smaller of your size range. When in between sizes, go for the smaller size as our shoes have no stiffeners and are best and most comfortable with a snug fit.
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.
