Wooden Shank

The shank is an internal part of the shoe which goes between the insole and outsole and provides stability to the shoe.

We use hardwood shanks on all our footwear. We do not need to use steel fluted shanks as our shoes have relatively low heels. Also, as the insoles are leather, we can achieve a better cemented bond than steel, which would ideally have to secured with a metal rivet.
