Blake Stitched By Hand
This style is constructed using the Blake method. It’s characterized by a double binding (blake and rapid, precisely): while the first attaches upper, lining and insole; the second one secures the insole and outside sole together. The shoes are therefore easy to resole, and have greater flexibility.
Full Calf Lined Interior
These shoes are fully-lined with soft calfskin leather, which means ultimate comfort. Most companies will only partially line their shoes, but we go the extra mile because it means a more comfortable shoe and less break-in time.
What is MTO Standard Production?
Hand Painted Crust Leather
Crust calf is untreated –not dyed– leather. It's usually used in its plain form, but it can be embossed with textures like pebble grain, full grain or croco. This leather is hand painted by our maestro colorist using natural dyes and oils.
Being an artisanal process, it is difficult to achieve uniform shades, especially in the lighter ones, although its main attraction is precisely its natural finish and the light transparency in its colors, which gives great distinction and versatility.
Made with HighGrade Box Calf
Box calf is the most traditional leather there is. The grand majority of quality-mens-shoes are made from this kind of material. Box calf is a type of leather taken from calves, and although it has a pliable feel, it is firm in consistency. Box calf leathers are given their final colour and shine at the tannery, which will improve with time and develop a lovely patina.
The Zurigo Shoe Last
This style is produced using our most famous shoe last, which features a round toe for a classic english look. The Zurigo last is a perfect choice for either a casual look or a more contemporary shape to wear with formal clothes. The classic fit and slight almond toe creates a beautiful last with a timeless and versatile shape.
Softspikes Cleats Soles
Softspikes Pulsar delivers maximum comfort and performance via a 16 component design that reacts to every angle of force exerted by the golfer. Reinforced arched webbing between each of Pulsar’s legs delivers instant energy return every time the cleat is compressed – resulting in a cleat that offers unmatched stability and comfort.
Entirely cut by hand
The Clicking Department is the first stage of production. The
highly skilled Clickers (whose name derives from the 'click'
sound made when the knife is removed from the leather) use
predetermined patterns to intricately cut the shoe's uppers and
linings. Each Clicker design and grind the blade of their knife to
their own personal taste and working preference.
