Cordovan

Aguirre & Gross creates a completely made- to-measure handmade shoe, the Cordovan. We go wherever our clients are, taking no longer than 48 hours in Spain and one week for the rest of the world. We will present our leather, lasts and model samples. The shoes will be delivered to our customers within two months of the measurements being taken. A & G guarantees that these shoes are handmade from start to finish. Our leather is Bovine and Cordovan and are manually tanned with vegetable products. No machinery is used and it is all hand sewn with linen thread for the uppers and hemp for the soles, impregnated with pine resin and beeswax.
Nowadays, it is almost impossible to find a shoemaker who sews shoe parts by hand; this art ceased when the first sewing machine was invented in 1851. Our hand-crafted shoe-making techniques go back over 200 years. These shoes capture the essence of craftsmanship at its best. Our costumer will receive a CD with pictures of how his shoes are made.
