Floris about this shoe:
These shoes are made according the Goodyear production method. We cannot add more craftsmanship! Each part is customised by hand in our factory here in Moergestel. You will come across poetic professional jargon, such as patching, spraining, side licking, cutting and 'sloping'. It makes my cobbler’s heart beat faster... We have made shoes this way for centuries. Initially completely by hand and after the industrial revolution with the help of machines. At the end of the production process the side of the sole is given the right colour with a brush dipped in stain. Without spilling! That tray with stain is placed about 30 metres from the desk where I am typing on now. Producing shoes... we really love it here.
This half-high lace-up boot is made from cognac calf skin leather. On the toe, the shoe is finished with stitching. Under the forefoot the brown leather sole is finished with a grey rubber thread stating all the names of our employees. The heel consists of several layers of leather with a dark brown rubber heel tip incorporating the Floris van Bommel logo. The round brown laces are made from waxed cotton. The lining and inner sole are leather.
Goodyear: Using an inner stitch the inner sole is attached to the upper leathers and the sole edge. Afterwards, the running sole is attached to the upper leathers with stitching through the sole edge and the sole.
H-last, extra width measurement. Extensive fit range. The last has a distinctive toe with rounded square shapes.
