We are proud to announce the introduction of 3 new color variations of our natural crepe sole: Black, Brown and Off White, without forgetting of course about the original and iconic Honey color.
Natural crepe soles have become real specialty and true rarity nowadays. Very few shoe manufacturers still offer shoes with crepe soles. They are very complex to manufacture and the soles are significantly more expensive than mineral oil based materials such as EVA, TPU or lightweight rubber.
Expert knowledge and lots of experience are required for the finishing of crepe soles. For this reason, these kind of soles are mostly used exclusively in the luxury sector. They are particularly popular amongst fashion-minded men and globetrotting fashionistas. It is easy to see why – the crepe sole never fails to provide the shoe with an unbeatable natural and casual look – no matter whether it is a chukka boot or a ladies’ ankle boot.
Bear in mind that these new crepe sole colors are exclusively available for Goodyear Welted shoes. For Blake shoes, the standard crepe color (Honey) will remain as the only one available.
Crepe soles (Goodyear) can be customized with 2 different welt styles: City and Country. The color of the welt can’t be modified at the moment, and will always be color matched to the sole.
