Shoe Sole Options

We offer a range of soles to suit your style and the environment whether you want zero-rise or chunky, we’ve got it all! All our shoes come with a layer of natural crepe between the sole and the upper. It offers great shock absorption and your foot will bed down into this layer with time, leaving your own unique print. The final soling material for your shoes is your choice. Our inner soles are made of leather and are completely flat. Our shoes do not contain any padding or moulding and don’t have removable insoles.

All our styles are designed to be fully rebuilt (resoled) when the time comes, significantly extending the life of your favourite shoes. Some sole options can also be re-heeled if you wear the heels out before the rest of the sole.

If you would like any help or advice with your sole choice do feel free to give us a call or drop us an email we are happy to help you choose.

Tyre Print With Heel

Made from natural rubber that has been vulcanised making it flexible but firm. The tyre print sole offers a slim, hard-wearing sole with a fine tread. This sole has a flat profile so you can really feel what’s beneath your feet. It’s suitable for almost all styles, it can be re-heeled as well as resoled.

Cleated

Made from solid, vulcanised rubber this walking boot sole is tough, hardwearing, and great ‘off-road’. Although it’s our most dense sole it’s still very flexible and extremely comfortable. This sole is an extra £10.

Vibram Light Weight Cleated

Please note if this sole is unavailable at the time we are making your shoes, we will use an alternative lightweight sole, SVIG. This is due to supply issues.

This Vibram sole is very comfortable and lightweight. It offers the chunky look and a practical cleated tread whilst being very cushioning, grippy, and shock absorbing in both an urban environment and ‘off-road’. This sole is made from a lightweight rubber which means although extremely comfortable will not be as hardwearing as something made of vulcanised rubber like the Tyre sole or Cleated Sole.

Vibram Lightweight Zero-Rise Ribbed

Very comfortable and lightweight, this sole is made by Vibram. It’s comfortable and shock absorbing. It comes as standard on many of our sandals but it also a treat for the feet on a pair of boots or shoes. This sole is a zero-rise sole meaning it is the same height all the way through.

Crepe With Heel

Made from 100% natural, sustainable rubber, crepe offers great comfort and impact absorption. It’s extremely flexible which allows your foot to do what it would naturally. It has a slim profile and unique live feel which looks great on any style! Suitable for most seasons the crepe can be re-heeled as well as being fully resoleable. To give your crepe soles a long life do not expose them to high temperatures (e.g, leaving them in a car on a hot day in direct sunlight or on a radiator) as the rubber can melt. Avoid petroleum and other harsh substances that may be on the ground.

Barefoot – Crepe – Zero Rise

Made from natural, sustainable rubber, crepe is very comfortable and extremely flexible allowing your foot to move as it would naturally. These attributes make for a great barefoot feel in most terrains. It has a slim profile visually and is available on any style to put a ‘spring in your step’. To give your crepe soles a long life do not expose them to high temperatures (eg, leaving them in a car on a hot day in direct sunlight or on a radiator) as the rubber can melt. Avoid petroleum and other harsh substances that may be on the ground.

Zero Rise Cleated

The same as our ‘heavy cleated sole’ but without the heel making it zero rise (flat). Made from solid, vulcanised rubber this walking boot sole is tough, hardwearing, and great ‘off-road’.

The tread on this sole is the same as the cleated just without a heel. We don’t currently have a picture.

Barefoot – Tyre Print – Zero Rise

Made from natural rubber that has been vulcanised, the tyre print sole offers a slim look with a fine tread pattern. This sole has good flexibility and a great amount of grip! Having a slim profile and being flexible means you can really feel the earth beneath your feet. Suitable for any style.

Light Crepe

Thinner than our normal ‘Crepe’ sole. This sole choice is made from natural and flexible rubber. It comes on our ‘Aimee’ sandals at standard, with or without a heel but can also be used on other sandal styles. With all the properties of our standard crepe, light crepe offers a comfortable and grounded feel.To give your crepe soles a long life do not expose them to high temperatures (eg, leaving them in a car on a hot day in direct sunlight or on a radiator) as the rubber can melt. Avoid petroleum and other harsh substances that may be on the ground.
