HAND-COLORED CALF LEATHER IS VERY ABSORBENT AND THEREFORE WE SUGGEST CLIENTS USE DEDICATED LEATHER CARE PRODUCTS TO PREVENT IRREVERSIBLE STAINING OR WATERMARKS. OVER TIME AND WITH EXPOSURE TO LIGHT, THE HAND-COLORED LEATHER WILL GRADUALLY BECOME DARKER IN COLOR: THIS MELLOWING EFFECT IS REGARDED AS A NATURAL FEATURE OF THE MATERIAL AND IS NOT A DEFECT
THE RENOWNED BLAKE CONSTRUCTION IS A SHOE-MAKING METHOD INTRODUCED IN 1856 BY LYMAN REED BLAKE IN MASSACHUSETTS AND VERY POPULAR IN ITALY
IN BLAKE WELTING THE UPPER OF THE SHOE IS STRETCHED AROUND THE INSOLE BEFORE A SINGLE STITCH BINDS THE OUTSOLE, INSOLE, AND UPPER TOGETHER
THE WELT IS THE STRIP OF LEATHER THAT RUNS AROUND THE PERIMETER OF A SHOE, HELPING TO BIND THE OUTSOLE TO THE UPPER COMPONENTS OF THE SHOE; THIS ALLOWS MORE FLEXIBILITY AND LIGHTER WEIGHT AS COMPARED TO THE STURDIER GOODYEAR CONSTRUCTION
NOWADAYS IT IS ESPECIALLY POPULAR IN ITALY
IN BLAKE CONSTRUCTION THE OUTER SOLE IS DIRECTLY STITCHED TO THE INSOLE; THIS ALLOWS MORE FLEXIBILITY AND LIGHTER WEIGHT AS COMPARED TO THE STURDIER GOODYEAR CONSTRUCTION
