Quality Checklist: Shoes
Like every other part of your wardrobe, you’re a man’s dress shoes are only as good as the investment put into them. We only carry a few carefully selected designer shoe companies so that you know they are the finest quality.
The important thing to know about shoes are their use of lasts. These are foot shaped molds around which the shoe is built. Companies like Allen Edmonds us over 50,000 lasts in 19 different shapes and widths so that shoes can match the contours of millions of feet.
Shoes are then produced by joining the shoe upper to its insole with a layer of shock-absorbent cork between the insole and outsole. Hand-finishing and polishing techniques are the last step. High quality breathable leather is of utmost importance.
