General Information

Shell Cordovan Horse Leather: for shoes, the best in the world.

Its form makes this a shoe fit to weareveryday: it’s mid-high, offering stablesupport to the foot, and the more robustdouble-stitched design with moldedrubber outsole offers greater loadcapacity and durability. Very rare andanything but ordinary, however, is theleather from which this shoe is made:Shell Cordovan, the famous leather derivedfrom very specific small areas ofthe hide (namely, only the croup) of aspecial breed of draft horses. Dinkelackeracquires it from the Horween tanneryin Chicago, a firm that has specializedin horse leather since 1905 andone of only a handful remaining in theworld. Both the softness and supplenessof the leather is due to the high fatcontent – if you give it a little time towear in, the shoe will soon fit like aglove. It’s hand-dyed and has a fineshimmer that comes from the buffingprocess (done with a glass drum). Exclusiveto Manufactum.

Handcraft from Budapest. Heinrich Dinkelacker .

Shoes from the workshop of HeinrichDinkelacker have been made in Budapestsince the 1960s and prior to thatfrom 1879 in Sindelfingen in southernGermany. What makes these shoesoutstanding is their fit, but above alltheir exceptional craftsmanship. EachDinkelacker shoe requires 300 differentprocedures. After the prototype hasbeen made, the patterns are cut; andafter a very careful selection the leatherthat makes up the shaft for the uppersis cut. This leather is then steamed andthe shaft is stretched over the woodenshoe lasts, nailed and the following dayre-pinched. After a week the leather istaken from the last – machine-madeshoes usually only stay on the last for30 minutes! – This guarantees that theshoe maintains its form and fit for manyyears to come.
The insole is crafted by hand to theshape of the last, uppers, lining andwelts are then sewn to it – there is nobetter connection.

Please note:

this high-laced ankleboot has been cut on a relatively slimlast. For this reason, please order aclose fit – horse leather ‘gives’ with time.
