|Outsole||double leather sole|
This model is a (full) brogue, with a wing cap and pinking and perforations.The original Budapest last is characterised by its high, slightly forward-tending tip.
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 sole is double-stitched with a characteristically Hungarian plaited welt. The characteristic plaited welt is a complicated double stitch, into which two leather strips are plaited by hand. This is an expression of typical Hungarian craftsmanship.
Beneath the insole is a layer of cork, providing additional resilience and insulation.
The double leather outsole is strengthened by 84 brass nails per shoe, in the 6-nail pattern typical of Dinkelacker.
This shoe fit has proven itself for 60 years now, offering plenty of room for the toes and the ball of the foot, and is excellently suited to a high arch.
