Andres Sendra apprecitation thread

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Sendra is a Spanish boot maker which now also makes men's shoes. They seem to fall in the same price range as Yanko, Carmina and Meermin Linea Maestro.

I know their GY welted women's boots which are of decent quality. Has anyone seen their new line of men's shoes in real life yet?

http://www.andres-sendra.com/en/collection.html

Some Q&A I received by e-mail earlier tonight (they are very responsive I found out, I got replies within minutes and it is evening here in Western Europe right now)

  • Last information: http://www.andres-sendra.com/int_en/sizefeet/
  • They can make the shoes with closed channel leather sole, vibram, hybrid (rubber+leather) at no extra cost
  • They can make 180, 270 and 360 degree welts (180 degree beveled waist shown below)
  • The shoes are entirely made in Spain and quality, materials & construction are similar to Carmina and Yanko but more versatile

Some pictures:

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 smile.gif

...

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 smile.gif

...

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:
http://www.andres-sendra.com/int_en/sizefeet/

...


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?

Yes, they make great RTW shoes and boots  for some well known international brands.  Do not ask me names.:stirpot:.

Haha, it would be fun for people to guess (but to acknowledge the guesses as guesses, not fact). smile.gif

Does nobody else have first hand experience with Andres Sendra's own line of shoes on all of StyleForum? D:

I have the 12139 wholecut on the Jean last with fox patina. IE (not my pic):

 

 

The Jean last, for me, runs somewhat true to size. If you have a low instep it might not work for you. Overall it's a fairly generous last.

 

Leather quality and finishing is up there with the usual suspects in this range.

I've only bought this one pair so far but the level of service was brilliant. Will definitely go back for more.

Looks beautiful, this was one of the shoes on my radar, apart from the Collin last plain wholecut and monkstrap. I just bought a monkstrap from Yanko though (rather, about to tomorrow) so I might not be buying from Andres Sendra until later this year. I am really interested in their patina services, unlike other patina places they have a fixed set of patinas which are really nice imo, but you don't pay anything extra and you get the patinated shoe in two weeks!! That's an incredible turnaround time for patinated shoes. :)

Come to think of it, that pair is a Fox patina isn't it? It's beautiful!

Can you post some actual pictures of your pair?
post #8 of 22

Nothing handy at the moment unfortunately. Will see if I can snap a few dirty mobile shots when I find the time.

The colours in the pic I posted above are actually extremely representative of the real patina though imo. At least for my pair and on my screen.
My pair are about half a size or so too large though since I ordered them blind, so there is some excessive creasing around the toe/vamp.

As promised, sorry for the crappy pics though.

I bought a pair of 12146 when they started up their online sales. They've held up great and have been a good buy all-in-all but beware that the Boss last is rather wide:
post #11 of 22
Any thoughts from other gents?

The Patina model colors look nice.

Plus, prices are reasonable.

@j ingevaldsson time for a review of this brand?
post #14 of 22
Sendra is located in Almansa, just inside the Castilian border with Valencia, right? I gather Magnanni is also located in that city. It would be fun to visit sometime: Goodyear construction at Sendra, Bologna at Magnanni.

Yes. Almansa is little Northampton.
