The Lakeshore Last exhibits the versatility and character demanded of a professional shoe. Crafted to fit with precision, this last provides durability and distinction from morning commute to evening cocktail.
Our leather soles are designed and manufactured alongside our footwear to our exacting specifications for comfort and durability. Each sole is created from the bottom-up, using no pre-assembled components. Paired to a stacked leather heel with dovetail toplift, each sole is treated with oil for flexibility and water-resistance.
Chromexcel is made using proprietary techniques and formulas developed over 100 years ago in a factory still owned and operated by the Horween family in Chicago. It's characterized by a rich pull-up in full aniline, hand-rubbed finish, superior comfort, and durability. Chromexcel was made famous by its patina—the unique character of each hide which comes to life with wear.
