It takes over 150 different steps to handcraft our shoes and sometimes they end up with minor imperfections that don’t meet our standards. Some shoes or other leather goods have slight creases or marks in the leather. These are considered Factory Seconds and offered to you at significant savings. The small aesthetic flaws do not affect the fit, comfort and durability you expect from all our footwear and leather goods. These are leather goods that you can count on wearing and using for years to come.
