Founded in 1873, Church’s has long since established itself as one of Britain’s premier shoe brands. Just in time for summer, the venerable company has introduced the lightest Goodyear-welted shoe to the market. Known as Church’s 450 collection, the innovative shoes are crafted by a unique manufacturing process that reduces the weight of the sole while maintaining the superior technical characteristics of the Goodyear construction—a method of attaching the upper part of the shoe to the sole.
Whereas previous Church’s Goodyear shoes weighed at least 540 grams, the 450 collection weighs—fittingly—450 grams. Lightweight and breathable, the stylish shoes are ideal for summer. The footwear is available in a wide range of colors, each distinguished with a feather stamped into the sole of the shoe. Prices are available upon request. (church-footwear.com)
