The Double Stitchdown is a luxury, hand made version of a classic desert boot.

The Double Stitchdown is built from start to finish by one master craftsman. The upper is stretched over the last, flanged out and sewn by hand to the sole. This hand sewn lock stitch is made up of a top and a bottom stitch which are then inter-stitched. As a result, the stitching will not unravel, even if a stitch is removed. We've added a second stitch to ensure this shoe is even more robust and hard wearing. Shoes with stitchdown construction can use leathers of a higher oil and fat content. This leads to a very supple feel, which cheaper imitations of this process can not achieve.

It is then left on the last for up to ten days where light steam is let into the room, its moisture falling on the shoes. This process allows the humidity to tighten the shoe on the last, ensuring a superior shape and fit.

We have used the finest Italian vegetable leathers, using minimal, dyes, chemicals and pigments so the hide remains as close as possible to its natural state. The leather breathes as it does in nature. It is non irritant, soft to the touch, ages richly over time and is biodegradable.

The Stitchdown features a super light weight Vibram Moreflex outsole. Vibram is the world's leading outdoor sole manufacturer. Vibram is a company with a history of innovation and quality from 1936. Check out

This style is fitted with a Buffalo leather vegetable tanned foot bed.

We suggest this shoe be worn bare foot.
