SS19 Museum Calf Leather Men's Shoes for Warmer Weather
A few years ago, we designed a lighter-weight footwear collection more suited to wear in warmer weather.
Produced with the same characteristics of a hard-wearing welted shoe, the flexi welt range features a lightweight leather sole and leather insole, cork filler and comes half lined.
This deconstructed flexi shoe is thirty percent lighter than our standard country footwear. However, it remains as durable and solid as you would expect from shoes and boots produced by England's oldest shoemaker.
For SS19, we have included a penny and tassel loafer plus a Derby shoe in soft museum calf leather to the collection which bring an elegant look to the lighter-weight range.
What is Museum Calf Leather?
This high-quality leather is distinctive by its beautiful variations in dark and light patterns. Museum Calf is created by hand, when a sponge is used to frame the marble, mottled effect while the hide is still wet. The result gives a soft tanned background with a darker front base. The smooth finish is extremely durable and hard-wearing. As you can imagine, no two pairs look the same, making them extremely unique.
One of our most popular styles is the Robert plain Derby shoe. Available in a variety of finishes from calf, bookbinder and suede, Robert is also a firm favourite choice in our lightweight range. Built on our W2298 last, the sizing is true.
Jason is a classic penny loafer. Built on our true to size 11659 last, this version for SS19 is half lined and finished on our lighter weight flexi welt single leather stitched sole and available in black, brown or burgundy.
Like Jason, Elton is a classic penny loafer but with tassels. Again, built on our true to size 11659 last, Elton is also half lined and finished on our lighter weight flexi welt single leather stitched sole and available in black, brown or burgundy.
Before boxing, the toe box for all these styles is finger polished by hand. Taking up to three hours per pair, the result gives a mirror-like shine.
This new collection features vegetable tanned insoles, and the Tricker’s own-designed flexible leather sole and welt.
As with all Tricker’s footwear, these are made entirely in our Northampton shoe factory using Goodyear welted construction.
How to Care for Museum Calf Leather
- Only use Tricker’s neutral polish.
- To maintain the high-shine toe box, wrap a clean cotton cloth around two fingers. Using only Tricker’s neutral polish, ever so lightly dampen the cloth in clean water, dip gently into the polish and sweep gently over the area using circular movements.
- Keep your footwear in their shoe bags to prevent damage.
- Use shoe trees to help maintain shape.
