Bobbies Chestnut Arsene – Chestnut
- Jodhpur Goodyear welted boots hand-made in Portugal
- Our Goodyear welted shoes are produced in Benedita, north of Lisbon, in a small traditional workshop specializing in the Goodyear assembly, which is now more than 50 years old. Twenty-five highly skilled, passionate craftsmen work there to produce forty pairs a day. This construction, also called the ‘welted assembly’, is based on the so-called welt which is sewn to both the upper part of the shoe (the stem) and its sole, making the shoe waterproof and giving it the ability to receive new soles. It’s the epitome of high-end assemblies.
- The calf leather used to create this pair comes from one of Italy’s most famous tanneries, which has been supplying the main luxury firms for decades. Received in its raw state, its deep hues are obtained thanks to the meticulous work of our master bootmaker, who is an expert in the know-how of patina. For nearly thirty minutes, through a clever mixture of our different shades, manual work generates these subtle variations of tones that will make each pair unique.
- Cow leather lining
- This pair has a super-strong, non-slip Goodyear stitch rubber sole to suit your needs while optimizing your comfort. Made of 100% natural rubber, it is flexible and breathable. It will fit you in all circumstances and keep your feet dry. Offering excellent sealing qualities, it will withstand abrasion for optimal durability.
- Supplied with a protective bag for each shoe, in a box made of paper from FSC-certified forests
