How our shoes are made
Here at Anatomic & Co, we pride ourselves on creating high quality shoes that offer a superior level of style, support and comfort. If you’re curious to find out how our footwear is made to these exacting standards, read on.
Designed in England and handmade in Brazil
Designed in the UK, Anatomic gel shoes and boots take the best from refined British style and attention to detail. They are then handcrafted in Brazil using the latest shoe-making technology and finest quality materials.
Soft leather upper
Featuring smooth and supple leather uppers, our handmade shoes offer an unsurpassable level of comfort. Sourced exclusively from the best tanneries in Brazil, our full grain leather is sumptuously soft and naturally treated. We want our leather to have a natural look and feel, which is why we keep our use of chemicals to a minimum. To give our shoes a sophisticated, vintage appearance, we also also burnish the material. It also allows for maximum airflow and for perspiration to be absorbed, keeping feet fresh and ventilated.
To ensure our shoes provide maximum comfort, we add cushioned footbeds. For added resistance and flexibility, these beds include two layers of foam and latex. On top of this, we add a genuine sheepskin lining for a super soft feel. Beneath the beds we include a patented antibacterial layer for maximum breathability and moisture absorption, helping feet to stay cool, dry and fresh. By adding these layers to our footbeds, we ensure that as well as feeling great to wear, our shoes are able to retain their original shape for a long time.
Supple hinged insole
For added flexibility, Anatomic shoes feature supple hinged insoles that conform and flex to the natural movements of your feet. In fact, they are so strong that they can be bent over and over again without breaking. Our insoles also provide an additional layer of cushioning for a more comfortable walking experience.
Flexible rubber gel sole
Using our Anatomic Gel Technology®, the soles of our shoes are made from a combination of natural rubber and a special gel. Exclusive to us, this technique gives our soles added resistance and flexibility, with a non-slip surface and soft leather welts for added comfort.
High quality thread
We pride ourselves on our attention to detail, and even our sewing thread has been specially developed to offer the highest standards of quality. It features a waxed coating that resists discolouration and stops water penetration. Using the traditional McKay method, our shoes are made with one continuous stitch through all the layers to achieve a smart, refined finish.
It is impressive attention to detail like this that allows us to create some of the finest shoes money can buy.
