DIRECT TO CONSUMER PRICING FOR QUALITY HIGH END FAIR TRADE SHOES
Why Limited Inventory?
Manufacturing shoes in small batches reduces the waste, energy and fuel consumed when overproducing shoes that might just sit on a shelf, go to a discount outlet or, worse, be destroyed.
Limited inventory allows us to keep overhead minimal. We ship from a small office and can adapt more quickly to bring you what you want.
Quality over quantity, it's that simple. Small batch manufacturing allows us to adapt more quickly to customer demand. Whether it be adapting to changes in shoe innovation, design, or materials, we are constantly testing the waters.
Leather is just like skin. Without moisturizer, it can dry up and even crack. Since our shoes are handcrafted at the time a customer places an order, this ensures that the leather isn't sitting around getting dry in a warehouse or on a shelf.
Cut: Raw material is hand cut for the upper of the shoe
Sewing: The upper patter and lining are being stitched together to create the final upper piece that will be stretched and molded over the shoe last. The shoe then passes through the assembly line to finish the sole stitching
Lasting: The upper is stretched over the shoe last and left on the last for 3 days for the shoe to take shape.
Pre-Patina: The shoe is now ready to be takin to the Patina Workshop where they apply natural dyes and oils by hand to color the shoe.
Finishing: the finishing department does the final retouching and brushing to get the perfect look.
Packing: The order will be packed and checked for any additional service or accessories that may have been requested
Inspection: the order will be inspected for any imperfections. If an imperfection is found, then this will delay shipment.
Ready to ship: Once the order is ready to ship, a pickup will be scheduled for the next business day. Our shoes are shipped express from Spain to us here in Philadelphia.
Arrival Inspection: Once the shoes arrive in Philadelphia, I personally inspect every pair for imperfections and can send you pictures of your shoe.
Insole Fitting: We then fit the shoe with our medical grade triple density insoles.
Final Shipment: We then pack up your order and send them via USPS Priority 2-day shipping directly to your front door!
