  3. really nice work. its not goodyear welt however, its hand welted.

    unfortionatly he is getting some verry serious brain and organ damage by inhaling the cement fumes constantly and dipping his bare hands in it. it is almost guarnteed this is a toluene based cement i hate to see such a talented craftsman exposing himself to guarnteed long term health problems like this.

    from osha:

    Health Hazards of Toluene

    You can be exposed to toluene by breathing it in, getting it on your skin, getting it splashed into your eyes, or swallowing it.

    Symptoms of toluene exposure include: irritation of the eyes and nose; weakness, exhaustion, confusion, euphoria, dizziness, headache; dilated pupils, lacrimation (discharge of tears); anxiety, muscle fatigue, insomnia; numbness or tingling of the skin; dermatitis. Toluene exposure may cause liver and kidney damage.

    Toluene affects the central nervous system, eyes, skin, respiratory system, liver, kidneys. Breathing high levels of toluene during pregnancy has been shown to result in children with birth defects and to retard mental abilities and growth. There is evidence that exposure to toluene at work is associated with spontaneous abortion.

    High concentrations of toluene, usually from use in a confined space or unventilated area, can cause loss of consciousness, respiratory depression and death. Long term and repeated workplace exposure to toluene affect the central nervous system.

  4. They should not be putting their hands in that glue. They should use a brush. Contact cement is very potent stuff.

  5. Almost every part of the process could have been done by punches and dies, but the fact that every hole was punched by hand, the welts hand skived, the soles trimmed by hand gives me goosebumps, and as peaceful as it looks, stitching by hand is tiring and often painful to pull the thread through by hand.  Craftsmen of this level are like Gods to me.

  6. We need to have as much work as possible return to the hands of craftsmen and women.  Better products, safer practices, happier clients and workers.  Automation has its place (my specialty) but nothing beats handcrafted longevity.

  7. wow, I want my pair of Santalum shoes right now!!

    extraordinary, peaceful workmanship, congratulations to all Santalum work team 😀

  8. Every time I see fine leather shoes being hand made It amazes me. A tradition I hope never dies…….
