The Artisan is a Belgian slipper style with apron detailing that also draws inspiration from lightweight jazz and dance shoes. Clean, simple, and versatile, the soft suede moulds to your foot, and the sole flexes with natural movement. The handmade, self-backed suede upper sits atop a custom-cut Vibram sole unit, in a choice of black, white, or gum colour, which are able to be resoled at our Northampton factory if required at a later date. Between the insole and outsole, the shoe features a layer of cork filling which is usually only found in high-quality, hand-made dress shoes. This process acts in a similar way to memory foam, adding comfort and support as your foot gradually beds into the shoe, leaving a subtle and lasting personal imprint of the wearer's feet. This unisex style can be worn with several different smart or casual outfits and the lightweight feel makes this a perfect everyday or travel shoe. Signed off with handwritten internal style notes, our entire Jazz Collection is handmade to order at our factory in Northampton, England. 


    Thought to be one of the best if not the best quality suedes available. This is mainly due to Janus calf suede originating from some of the very best raw material in the world. The hides benefit from a secret combination of ingredients used in the subsequent tanning processes - all carried out by C F Stead in Leeds, England. The end product has a soft, luxurious look and feel, whilst offering reassuring strength and durability. Janus suede may feel delicate to the touch but it contains strong fibres that make it tough, flexible and resilient.

    The four main shoemaking stages once an order is placed...

    Clicking

    The ‘clicking’ or cutting process as it is also known is the very start of your shoes being made, the leather is cut into the shapes that make up your silhouette either by hand or on a press.

    Closing

    Once all the components of the shoe are cut they go through several processes that are essential to the construction then they are sewn together to make the upper.

    Lasting

    A last is a template form that is unique to each shoe size and style, the upper is pulled onto the last to give it the final shape of the shoe ready for a sole to be fitted. Once the sole is fitted the shoe will have it’s complete form.

    Shoe Rooming

    The final stage of the factory process your shoes go through the hands of our quality checkers and the finish is applied to the leather or suede to finish the shoe and ensure it looks it’s absolute best.
