  • FEATURES /

    01/UPPER

    The upper is the first part of the shoe to be made. The leather is cut into separate pieces and then sewn together to form the part of the shoe that covers the top of the foot.

    03/SOLE

    The sole is the exposed part of the shoe that separates our feet from the ground.

    05/PULL LOOP

    A fabric or leather loop is stitched to the inside of the top of the line to help pull the boot onto the foot.

    02/EYELETS

    The eyelets are the small, circular pieces of metal that the laces are thread through.

    04/WELT

    The welt is a strip of PVC or leather material that is stitched around the bottom of the shoe and joins the upper to the sole.
