Materials and Finishes

Inspiration

Dainite Soles

Since 1910 the Dainite studded sole has provided comfort and grip in all conditions.

This sole is perfect for our wet winter conditions. It is more robust than leather in wet conditions as well as the added benefit of being slip resistant.

All our Custom Made Footwear can be specified with this sole. 

Suede Chukka Boots

Suede Chukka Boots

The humble chukka boot is a brilliant all-rounder - smart with tailoring but also excellent when paired with a casual jean, and incredibly comfortable to wear.

The name ‘chukka’ is said to be derived from the seven-and-a-half-minute polo playing period of the same name, which in turn is itself derived from the Hindi word ‘chukkar’ meaning ‘circle’ or ‘turn’.
