The secret behind the quality of our boat shoes
21 Apr 2016 09:32:48
Welcome aboard to comfort and quality!
Did you know that our extra roomy boat shoes are made exclusively for us by a family-run company who also make standard–size, top-end deck shoes for maritime shops? Since 1984, they’ve been using premium materials and time-honoured techniques to make their boat shoes which are popular in many countries in Europe.
Sandy and Woody, our men’s and women’s boat shoes, are a genuine moccasin construction and need unique shoemaking skills and processes to produce them. They have hand-sewn leather aprons and the uppers need steaming, hammering and moulding on specialist machines which don’t exist in conventional factories.

The company also makes Suzi, our women’s ultra-comfy casual. As with our boat shoes, the leather apron is hand-sewn (see image below).
