ACF Shoes (The COAL project). Made in England.

The shoes are brogues of course, the original fusion of refined craft and rugged utility in service of sartorial travel. Built in Great Britain using a traditional Goodyear construction complete with leather soles laid over hand troweled cork-paste footbeds and stitched to the upper via a goodyear welt. But tradition gives way to modern practicality as conventional laces are exchanged for the pull-on-and-go convenience of a contemporary elastic gore assembly.
