The Bench Mark:
Slow vegetable-tanned French Macello hides are selected for this package. Old heels, soles, cork foot-beds and stitches from welts are removed and replaced with the utmost care and attention to detail. Then we check for minor stitching and gluing of uppers. We remove laces and with non-abrasive agents deep clean leather, refinish color as best as possible and then buff with a color coordinated cream to insure leather is supple. Then, shine level is determined and applied in matt, sheen or high-gloss as original. Finally fresh laces are installed.
Any one who swears by fine footwear and is satisfied with only the very best will be familiar with the unsurpassed quality of the purely vegetable ground-pit process of the Rendenbach Tannery ,which takes 12 months to complete (not weeks) ,thus insuring highly valuable natural products. The same award winning craftsmanship is implemented in both packages. With this package we also include a pair of Cedar Shoe Trees and your choice of a fresh pair of leather sock liners, heel back liners or new welts as needed.
