How our shoes are made


Samuel Windsor Shoe Collection

The Samuel Windsor collection of handmade shoes are created by our best craftsmen from premium quality leather. Our shoes feature Goodyear welted construction for a hard wearing, high quality finish.

Our Collections

Each pair of Samuel Windsor shoes are handmade with pride by exceptional craftsmen, with no compromise on quality. Samuel Windsor men's shoes are the epitome of style and sophistication. Using only the finest leathers and suedes, both our lace-up and slip-on shoes are designed to fulfil the demands of a stylish and modern gentleman.

Unlike other manufacturers who make extensive use of machinery, Samuel Windsor shoes are made almost exclusively by hand.  

It takes over 100 individual processes and up to four weeks to produce each pair, resulting in the finest handmade footwear.  Handcrafting shoes utilizing natural products in this way can result in slight burnishes with the leather from time to time and tiny variations on the heels and soles. These slight variances are part of the joy of owning a pair of genuine handmade shoes and should not give any cause for concern. 

Goodyear Welted Construction

Our shoes feature Goodyear Welted construction. Goodyear Welted construction is used on all the best leather shoes. Invented hundreds of years ago (by Charles Goodyear in 1869), it is still considered one of the finest methods of shoe construction today. This construction is strong and durable, guaranteeing long lasting good looks and reliability.

 

 

A Goodyear welt is a strip of leather, rubber or plastic that is stitched through the sole using a special machine. As soon as the sole shows signs of wear, goes soft or a hole forms, you can simply get your shoes repaired rather than giving them the boot. Our Goodyear welted leather soles are designed to be easily replaced by your cobbler (if you manage to wear them out!)
