Hand-sewn construction for quality and flexibility. The breathable, leather-lined patent leather upper features topstitched, contrasting leather trim; an elastic gore on the instep strap ensures an accommodating fit. Replaceable with a custom orthotic, the suede-covered, shock-absorbing cork and natural latex cushioned insole manages moisture and encourages correct posture, evenly distributing weight to release pressure on the spinal column and joints; anatomical contouring and arch support help maintain balance, prevent slippage, and protect the heel bone. A metal shank adds further support and stability. Highly wear-resistant, the flexible polyurethane sole adds reliable grip to every step.
