Handmacher shoes make wood-nailed men's and women's shoes. They are crafted in more than 250 working steps. The sole, the middle sole and the upper are joined together by small wooden nails. This gives the shoe a first-class stability, which makes them very durable.
The passion for precious materials and aesthetics makes Handmachers wood-nailed shoes something special.
Handmacher use the finest top leather from Germany, Italy and France. The soles are made of old-pit-tanned leather by Joh. Rendenbach.
