Im running a little project where I'm working to return the spade sole to modern light. Will try to post the progress here. Our idea is to focus on the high end craftmanship, that means handwelt, new modern styles and old styles from the past. Enyoj

This is a real treat, The facing and counter is actually made in one piece of leather. Making the transition between the counter and edge very smooth. The perforation is also someting differant, a bit bold maybe. but fits one with risk och provocation close to heart.

goes well with the sapade and a real 30s gangster style.

I quite like the version of a spade sole one by Nicholas Templeman here...
Sure this is a typical soft spade, maybe more discreate than what we prefer, Something like this attached? Maybe we should add a less extreme version of the soft spade, these do look gorgeous.

Hello, a new bespoke fitting for a gentleman, very wide front feet. With leather combination inspiration from route 66. These were made with a fiddleback waist and with a rubber spade sole. enjoy.
