Malvern T - Burgundy Crust Patina

£250

Materials: burgundy crust patina
Lining: black calf leather
Sole: burgundy slipper leather sole

Similar to a slipper, the Belgian slipper often features a bow or tassel and has a top panel that provides a bit more structure to the shoe. With its seamless stitching, it is very popular in Europe and works well to maintain an elevated yet casual look.

Artisan-Hand Made Patina: The technique used to achieve this artwork is known as ‘Anticatura’, which is the Italian word for antique finishing. It is a speciality of Italian and French maestro shoemakers. Entrusted to the hands of the antique finisher, the upper part of the shoe becomes a work of art. The Anticatura method is a hand dyeing procedure of leather. It takes about 8-10 hours of work per pair to create a completely unique patina with an aged effect

Shoe Care

FIRST FEW WEARS

  • Leather soles can expand when wet, so it is best to avoid wet conditions when wearing your new shoes the first two or three outings.
  • If for any reason that your leather soles do become wet, take care that you dry them out slowly and naturally, away from direct heat - (eg radiators).
  • Leather shoes can often take a day to dry out fully. whenever possible alternate daily with other pairs of Walcott’s Footwear

 

BRUSH CLEAN & WAX POLISH

  • Leather uppers require regular treating with a good-quality wax polish to protect the leather and give a high shine finish.
  • This should help to prolong the life of the uppers and maintain their appearance. Ensure the shoes are dry before application.
  • Suede and Nubuck uppers can be treated using a ‘Suede Protector’ spray. Using a rubber suede brush can help to lift any dirt and debris.

 

SHOE TREES

  • Our shoes can last for decades, especially if they are cared for properly. The shoe tree is more than a simple accessory – it is a must.
  • Using shoe trees means you will be able to keep your shoes for a lifetime: they will develop a beautiful patina with time, but without ageing.
  • Our feet sweat throughout the day and the leather and lining of our shoes absorb all that moisture. This can cause the lining to deteriorate, your shoes to get an unpleasant smell, and the leather to crack over time, thereby ruining your beautifully handcrafted pair of shoes.
  • A shoe tree holds a shoe in its proper shape so it dries out correctly and keeps the leather from cracking by wicking away moisture. The absorbent wood also helps dry out the lining of shoes so that they don’t rot from the inside out.
