What type of construction do you use?
Our Foster Collection is Blake constructed, a technique named after its inventor, Lyman Reed Blake dating back to 1858. Blake construction is a very popular construction method used to produce many of the world’s finest men’s dress shoes. The process entails mounting the upper to the sole using a "right through" stitch which directly connects the sole to the upper and the insole – offering improved flexibility, a short break-in time, and a sleek look.
Our Sullivan Collection is constructed using the Goodyear welting process. Goodyear construction is prized by shoe aficianados the world over due to its intensive process of attaching the upper to the outsole. During this process, the leather upper is shaped over the last and fastened to the inner sole via a material strip known as a welt. The welt forms a cavity, which is then filled with a cork material. The outsole is then stitched directly to the Welt. The whole process is done by hand and offers serious durability with a hearty, substantial look.
What are some tips for maintenance and care?
Shoe Horn: Shoe horns are always recommended as they help to preserve the back counter and overall structure of your shoe.
Shoe Trees: Shoe trees should be inserted after each wear. A good wooden shoe tree will reduce moisture and maintain the condition and shape of your shoe for years to come.
Polishing: Shoes should be conditioned and polished on a regular basis to keep the leather supple and well moisturized.
Resoling: All Jack Erwin shoes (with the exception of the Cooper Boat Shoe and Parker Driving Loafer) can be resoled. We suggest finding a good cobbler and sticking with him/her.
