Our Baroque men’s shoes are slightly heavier than modern shoes, but are not extremely heavy. The buckle can be opened and the leather strap over the vamp adjusted. The shoes can be easily put on with a shoehorn without having to open the buckle.
The sole and the heel in the photos are made of abrasion-resistant rubber, but can also be made of genuine leather. The shoes are more rigid than modern shoes, still you can wear them comfortable (no clog feeling!). The upper leather is completely dyed from the tannery.
The upper part of the shoe is sewn by machine, then it is soaked and stretched over the making last, the corresponding size is formed and tied to the insole sole. After the shoes are dried, the outsole is glued and the heel is modelled. This procedure has been practiced since 1997.
These shoes are available in standard EUR sizes. If you select the size "made-to-measure", they will be manufactured according to this measurement chart. Please fill it in after you finish your order.
The shoes are treated with balm containing beeswax. The shoes are made of genuine leather. You can treat them with various shoe care products. The balm softens the leather soft and waterproofs it. Moreover, it makes the leather darker. If you do not have the balm, you can also use oil for leather or a normal shoe polish. The shoes polish can easily tone the leather color and cover minor imperfections (e.g. scuffed shoe tips).
In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
