Great start to the thread! Some more info from my conversational exchanges with them (copied from email text) :
"In relation to your questions:
I would also like to ask you about the kind of construction, leather source, and sole type.
What kind of construction technique do you use? Goodyear, Blake stitch, storm welt, rapid stitch, something else?
All our shoes are Goodyear welted.
Our standard sole is genuine Spanish leather sole, but we offer different types, rubber, vibram, etc.
Where do you source your crust leather from? Tanneries du Puy, France.
Also, do you use single or double leather soles? Any bevelling on the waist? Are they open or close channel soles?
These options are customizable, we use to make single leather sole, but can do double.
We can make beveled waist (most of the shoes in "patina concept" have it, please have a look at the website)
We do open & closed channel, just choose what you prefer. No additional costs on these modifications.
We can make some models in other lasts, not all of them, but some
Just let me know the models & lasts to be changed to & I will check if it is posible.
If it is possible (the design is done) there is not extra charge.
If an adjustment of the design is needed for the new last, it costs 150 EUR extra.
Yes, we can make changes in materials & colors. Just let us know your combinations & we will do it
All our shoes are made
In Spain from Skin to box.
Andres Sendra Shoemaker is a branch of SENDRA BOOTS company. Sendra is the real engine of the company selling successfully Goodyear welted boots worldwide since many years ago. Our factory produces high quality shoes for some famous brands also.
Not all the "classic" shoe brands have an engine like this. Also, we hardly stock models, we offer versatility & customization for a much competitive price on mto shoes.
All our lasts have same width (true to size) with 1 exception: last BOSS is special, width E.
Please check here: size chart & lasts details:
In relation to a GMTO program, we don't have it. But we can make a 15% discount on orders 10 pairs & up, choosing different models & colors."
Okay so that had a lot of redundant information, I'm sorry. I'm writing from my mobile phone so didn't want to edit too much - too cumbersome.
It would be great to hear from people who own a pair, and hear about some of the lasts?
