|Outsole||double leather sole|
This model is a (full-) brogue, with a cross cap and pinking and perforations.
The upper leather is horse leather, known in the trade as cordovan. Genuine Shell Cordovan from the Horween Tannery in Chicago is available in limited quanitities only, and is thus a true rarity. Characteristic of this exclusive material is its especially deep colouring, with an almost metallic sheen. This leather is extremely tough and wears very well, thanks to its high content of natural fats. Please read the advice on care prior to purchasing.
The insole is stitched welted. Kerfs are made in the welt, spaced according to the stitches. Beneath the insole is a layer of cork, providing additional resilience and insulation. The double leather outsole is strengthened by 30 brass nails per shoe, in the 3-nail pattern typical of Dinkelacker.
London is a classic and elegant last form with a very comfortable fit. The London provides plenty of room in the areas of the little toe and the ball of the foot.
The London fit has proven itself for more than 60 years, and it counts as one of the absolute classics in the Heinrich Dinkelacker collection.
