The use of Horween No 8 Shell Cordovan leather elevates these sneakers to a whole new level of quality. Each oval-shaped shell, expertly tanned, stuffed, shaved, and polished by hand, reveals the glossy signature finish that sets Shell Cordovan apart. This labor-intensive process takes at least six months, making it highly regarded among fine leather craftsmen and ensuring extreme longevity that creates beautifully unique patinas over time.
Designed for active individuals, the Everdon features a sustainable Lactae Hevea sole made from virgin hevea milk harvested directly from the Cao Su or ‘Crying Wood' tree. These soft and durable soles offer a comfortable ride that only gets better with each wear. And the best part? They are fully resoleable, adding to their sustainability and ensuring you can enjoy these sneakers for years to come.
The sneaker's construction incorporates time-honored techniques like hand-filled cork, providing comfort, stability, and breathability. The traditional oak bark counter and stiffener, along with a full natural veg-tan leather lining, create a solid and reliable structure, perfect for all your active adventures.
From clicking to shoe rooming, each stage of the shoemaking process is carefully executed, ensuring precision and attention to detail. Crown Northampton takes great pride in working with leathers from the world-class Horween Company tannery, especially their prized Shell Cordovan, ensuring you embark on a journey of luxury and quality with every step you take.
