ORDERS FOR THIS EXCLUSIVE CLOSE ON SUNDAY - ORDER NOW! Hey guys, There have been countless pages in the Oak Street Bootmakers affiliate thread discussion a StyleForum exclusive. It's been a fun journey - below is an outline of what we've come up with for the exlusive Leather In selecting something special, I headed to Horween a couple of weeks ago. To my surprise, on the Oak Street racks, I found a bundle of hides wrapped in kraft paper - marked 'Oak St Cavalier Cherry' This was a leather that I developed in conjunction with Horween about 2 years ago. It took us 6 months to get the blend right - the result was a beautiful Oxblood Cherry Cavalier Chromexcel (known for its intense sheen that is incredibly similar to Cordovan). Here is a photo of a shoe that we made using this leather: Soles For the sole, there was a lot of discussion of a goodyear sole that has been popping up on Aldens.. In researching this sole, I was talking with Vibram, who told me that the goodyear is a copy of a sole that they've been making in the USA for years! The Vibram 2060 - needless to say, we've elected to use this beautiful sole: Eyelets Antique Brass. These are the same eyelets that we use on many of our shoes - simple and beautiful: Welt Full leather stitched welt Insoles It's been requested so we're listening.
