The Blake construction technique employs a special machine which simultaneously stitches the sole, lining, upper and insole together in order to produce a more durable waterproof outsole. This type of construction can be divided into: Blake Leather and Blake Cowhide.
The Blake Leather technique provides flexibility and lightness, making it suitable for summer collections, and these shoes feature a natural cork insole with a leather outsole. The Blake Cowhide technique provides more structured results and requires a slightly thicker leather insole. You can always identify shoes made with this construction technique, thanks to the visible row of stitching inside the upper attaching the outsole.
