    • The leather piece that comes over your foot
    • The leather used is chrome tanned, fully-dyed or merely primed
  • Welt
    • The material used between the sole and the upper
    • The welt is made up of tough leather, rubber, or plastic
    • The welt is visible in traditional shoe designs
  • Insole
    • The sole inside the shoe
    • The insoles are made up of different materials; cellulose paper board, synthetic insole material or leather
    • The insoles should primarily be moisture and odour absorbing
  • Lining
    • The inside of a shoe often left as is
    • Our shoes are lined with superior quality faux leather
  • Outsole
    • The bottom side of the shoe
    • Outsoles are vital as shoe life and comfort depend on it
    • Made from rubber, Pu leather, Dainite or genuine leather
    • Rubber soles are often very cheap and long lasting
    • Traditional footwear uses genuine hardened leather soles for excellent quality
