The Details

When you start getting in to the details of footwear/apparel/accessory construction, the details can be interesting.

For instance, we use a #69 nylon thread when stitching our upper but use a #138 polyester thread when we stitch the leather wrap down. Why? We need a thicker, more durable material to adhere the extra layers together.

Same with the type of leather we use. Too thick and the comfort suffers. Too thin, and... the comfort suffers as well. The surface also makes a big difference in terms of its longevity.

The development process because, ultimately, these decisions influence the materials and the equipment we use. These investments help structure the company and the product we make.
