This  shoe is one of the classical styles from the 30s and the style was made together with Mr Renworks in 2021. This configuration is custmized with a brown museum Calf and blue suede from Ilcea tannery Italy. Bellow you can see the assembly of bottom and lasting using the Hawk last. This was chosen from evaluation from analysis of customers existing shoe sizes for optimal fit.

Leathers
Brown
Suede Blue

The shoes are hand lasted and made with a seamless heel this gives the feeling of attention to detail and clean cut. The customer requested a classical wide spade sole. Thus, ones the leather is assembled the welt is sewn by hand.

The outer sole liner is assembled and peeled; this is to allow the channels to be carved in the sole. Conventional and regular soles are made using one seam, but the wide spade requires double seam to retain stability and constructional reliability. It is also esthetically pleasing and historically accurate.

The welting is marked and then sewn by hand, the image shows the welting process and the resulting double welt. And by using a white thread a contrast seam is attained. This contrast seam hold no practical function, rather a esthetical value as attention is brought to the sole and thus highlighting the spade sole. 

The end result can be seen in the images above, quite succsessful and unique pair. This configuration will stick out, and such extravogance is either loved or hated. Regardless of taste, the craftmanship is meticolous and individual. We hope the customer gets propper use of these puppies.
