A take on the classic slipper but slightly updated with a handsewn apron. More comfortable than ever! First we removed the shoes structure and interior lining, this allows for greater breathability and flexibility. Perfect to keep your feet cool and comfortable for the spring and summer months ahead! Next we took the idea further and made our insoles slightly thinner, this removes some of the overall weight of the shoe. These small but purposeful changes allow for a lightweight, flexible, and comfortable, Goodyear welted shoe that will instantly become a staple in your wardrobe!
This very limited Meermin Shell Cordovan boots are made, using the Shell Cordovan handmade by Shinki Tannery, a family owned tannery in the heart of Japan, following ancient methods. Full vegetable tanned made following a 10 month process where every shell is pit tanned, naturally air dried & glazed by hand in order to achieve its very transparent & characteristic finish. That is a quite long process, but the result its totally worth it!
Shoes made with this beautiful leather are made to last & get more confortable over the time. Shoes with this precious leather will develope a deep patina over the time, that will add its very own special character.
Unfortunately nowadays, Shell Cordovan quantities are very restricted and because of that, these runs are extremely limited.
Goodyear welted on the HIRO last, the perfect fit for an unlined loafer. This extremely comfortable and flexible shoe was made by possible by the removal of the shoes interior lining and upper reinforcement you normally see in these types of shoes. This allows the shoe to conform to your foot nicely, you'll be surprised by how soft and gentle the underside of the leather as it keeps your feet feeling comfortable all day.
