More details about Custom Patina Benson Wholecut Oxblood

Italian made, custom oxblood patina wholecut

"Stunning color".

Hand finished oxblood patina

These are Italian made wholecuts, using full grain calf leather. They are then finished to order in England by our patina specialist. Shades of oxblood and complimentary tones are skilfully applied by hand. Several layers of special waxes are then added by hand to build up the depth of shine and protect the finish. Every pair is unique and is a work of art.

Full Grain Calf Leather 

Being a wholecut, each shoe is made from a single piece of high quality calf leather, so there has to be no defects. There is just a single joining piece at the back. It’s a very elegant, dressy, formal shoe, ideal for special occasions.

Attention to detail

The top line is neat, with no raw edges, as we taper or ‘skyve’ the edge, then fold the leather and stitch it. The shoe has a full calf leather lining. This helps absorb moisture and prolong the life of the shoe. And we use a genuine full leather insole. Inside the heel, the reverse counter, we use suede to stop your heel slipping. What you can’t see are the stiffeners between the calf upper and lining. There is one in the toe and another at the back. These are important to keep the shoe looking good as it ages, and we use longer, high quality stiffeners to achieve this.

Stitched sole Stacked leather heel

The sole is stitched onto the upper with a traditional Italian method called blake stitching. This is an in-channel, lock stitching technique, so even if one stitch was worn the others will still be locked securely in place. And being stitched the sole can be replaced when it eventually wears. But to extend the sole’s life, we use a rubber insert for added wear and better grip.

Stacked leather heel

There is a 25mm genuine leather stacked, heel, with 4 brass pins, and a rubber piece, again for better wear and grip, that can be easily replaced. There is a ‘gentleman’s corner’, a small bevel that reduces snagging of the heel on your trousers.

Benson custom oxblood patina wholecut is a beautifully Italian made high quality shoe, that with care should give you many years of enjoyment.
