Dainite Rubber Studded Sole Technical Drawing

Dainite's rubber-studded soles are as practical today as they were when introduced in 1894. Since then, Dainite continues to make its famously durable soles in Leicestershire, England. Reinforced with Silica and Aluminum silicate, these non-marking soles are highly regarded for all-weather traction and timeless style.

Habana by Badalassi Carlo

A lightweight vachetta (Italian vegetable-tanned bovine leather) with a firm hand which is tallow-greased, barrel-dyed, then barrel-stained, creating coloration like that of a cured tobacco leaf. A subtle sheen preserves both the rich, dark browns and warm highlights.

An Italian Leather Named After an African Wood

Iroko is a hardwood tree native to West Africa. Iroko wood has been used for centuries to create sculptures and ceremonial masks. The "figure" of this wood results from changes in density and direction within its grain—similar to that of burl wood—and absorbs and reacts to pigments to leave the surface with an oxidized appearance. The most skilled artisans can respond to changes in the grain as they carve, creating depth and dimension while leaving behind a record of their expressive carving technique.

Badalassi Carlo's 'Iroko' is a dye with pigments that bring the unique grain of its Habana tannage to life with an array of earthy tan, brown, and russet tones remarkably similar to those of the wood for which it's named.
