The Overstone Hi is a hi-top sneaker with traditional Derby lace-up construction. Double-stitched at pressure points for added strength yet otherwise hidden stitching throughout, and classically styled with metal eyelets. A soft and luxurious, full natural leather lining is complimented by hand finished, leather lined Crown Northampton insoles, adding a further level of comfort and quality. The sneaker collection is handmade to order in our Northampton, England factory using only the finest leathers sourced from some of the best tanneries in the world such as CF Stead in Leeds, England and the Horween Company in Chicago, USA. The custom made Crown Northampton sole unit offers strength, durability and comfort all in a lightweight base which is then securely attached with sidewall stitching, allowing for resoling in our factory at a later date if required. Finished with laser-etched branding to the outsole, handwritten internal style notes and compact heel pull that also acts as a wraparound lace loop for longer laces. Further details include a Crown embossed padded tongue, premium waxed laces, handwritten internal style notes and an extra set of insoles that can be placed underneath the existing insoles to help tailor the fit if necessary. Handmade to order in Northampton, England.


We do not suggest using saddle soap to care for this product

Horween buffalo leather is tanned in the US in a similar way to Chromexcel with a combination of both vegetable and chrome tanning. Through these processes, the buffalo is naturally shrunken down from around 30ft to 20ft when finished. This skilled process pulls the fibres together tight, making them very tough and durable. Each skin retains its own personal ruggedness which results in a pronounced grain that can vary in size across the surface. As the skins are purposely left natural straight out of the tanning drum and not embossed for a uniform finish, the true character of each skin shines through, making each pair of sneakers or shoes made from the material completely unique. The Horween Company is hugely respected and continues to deliver the very best leather available in the world through complex tanning processes and secret family methods.

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.
