    They are hand welted: welt is attached to insole by hand, (this step cannot be seen on the finished shoe).
    The out-sole gets stitched to the welt by a hand-cranked machine. This is the row of stitching you can see
    running along the welt.

    Other terminology: in-soling by hand (1:45), out-soling by machine (2:50).

    Apologies that it took so long to post these. I have always wanted a pair of the Sandringhams and was able to make the purchase last week. Thanks, as always, to Steven at Leffot for great service.

    Someone here wrote that the Sandringham is the most American EG shoe, I would have to disagree. This is a very English country shoe with a mixture of calf and grain. The color is Bauxite Antique with a Rosewood country calf vamp and a thistle. Yes, I like them quite a bit.

    The vamps are scotch grain. The quarters, counter and toe cap are full grain calf. The thistle is air.
