Details about Number 181

This women’s shoe does not feature any lacing, buckles, or other types of closures. No. 181 is a classic slip-on shoe—a penny loafer, to be precise—with a cognac-coloured leather upper. The penny loafer was once beloved among college students; this model, thanks to its feminine, Norway-style last form and block heel, has evolved into something much more versatile.

Goodyear-welted penny loafer in cognac


The penny loafer (often simply referred to as a loafer) is known for its so-called »bridge« detail, a slit strip of leather that lies across the top of the instep. While retaining this feature, No. 181 eschews the penny loafer’s traditional flat heel for a modern block heel. This unique model also features a split vamp, in the style of traditional Norwegian shoes.

The shaft of No. 181 is made entirely of the finest French calfskin. The inner lining and insole are made of vegetable-tanned cowhide. This model has been made using the Goodyear welting production method, which guarantees a perfect fit, extraordinary durability, and easy reparability. Soft cork filler placed between the insole and outsole makes for an exceptionally comfortable footbed. The heel and outsole come from the traditional Trier-based Rendenbach company, which has been producing high-quality leather soles since 1871.

No. 181 is a cognac heeled loafer with a classic, low-key yet elegant feel. The special cut of the shaft has a timeless look, and the shoe is easy to combine with clothing. Whether worn in the office, to a meeting, or during free time, this model is sure to impress.

Loafer

Loafer

The loafer is a comfortable slip-on shoe that was created at the beginning of the 20th century, and is considered an offshoot of the moccasin. Its shaft runs along the bottom of the foot and is connected on the top of the shoe with a vamp insert. This shoe also features an outsole and heel.

Classic Last

Classic Last

Subtly narrows at the front of the shoe. Features an elegantly rounded toe and a slightly elevated instep arch. The marked rise of the toe from the ground and the average-width middle portion of the shoe ensure wearing comfort. Ideal for average and high insteps.

French Calf

French Calf

This shoe’s upper boasts premium, medium-soft and fully-dyed calfskin. The technical term for this kind of leather is "French calf". This type of leather is known for its flexibility, fine texture, and soft grain.

Finish

Antique Finish

The upper has been fully-dyed cognac, while an intricate finish at the toe lends a final decorative touch. This special refinement at the tip of the shoe imbues the leather with a darkly gleaming shimmer.

Rendenbach Sole

Rendenbach Sole

For the past 140 years, Rendenbach has used oak bark tanning to produce leather soles—the process can take up to nine months. These soles are renowned for their extreme durability and natural water repellency. Women’s shoes with Rendenbach soles are a real novelty.

General information about our women's shoe collection

Goodyear-Welted

Goodyear-Welted

The gold standard when it comes to shoe manufacturing. Goodyear welting is a painstaking process that involves stitching the shaft and outsole to a thin strip of leather. Shoes made this way are extremely stable, durable, breathable, and easy to repair.

Handcrafted

Handcrafted

Mass-produced shoes are glued together on assembly lines. All of our premium, full-leather shoes, on the other hand, are handcrafted to the finest standards of quality. You can see and feel the difference.

Full-Leather Shoes

Full-Leather Shoes

The high quality of these shoes is reflected in their high leather content. Their uppers, lining, insoles, and outsoles are made from the finest leather. They even have leather heels, made by painstakingly stacking thin layers of leather on top of one another.

Construction

Construction

These shoes consist of roughly 65 separate parts. They took about 210 steps to assemble. We rely upon premium materials and traditional production methods to ensure that our footwear is of the absolute highest quality.

Breathable

Breathable

This shoe boasts a high proportion of leather, and has been assembled without the use of adhesive bonding—both of these factors ensure proper air circulation and prevent moisture from penetrating the surface. Dry, well-ventilated feet are healthy feet.

Delivery Content

Of course, our focus is on your new pair of shoes. But to underline our passion for our products, we enclose a few extras in your shipment. We hope that sparks your excitement about your new footwear.

Shoe Care Guide

Shoe Care Guide

Goodyear-welted shoes last far longer than mass-produced models. A dedicated cleaning and care routine is an indispensable part of keeping your shoes in mint condition. An introductory guide to shoe care is included with your order.

The values we live by

Lots of brands are quick to conceal the production methods behind their products, as well as the origins of the materials they use. We, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. From the very beginning, our products have been »Made in the EU«, in the classic sense. As such, we treat both our fellow man and the natural environment in a way that’s ecologically sustainable and ethically responsible. Each step on our supply chain is entirely transparent for you to see—that’s a promise we’re happy to stand by.

Values
EU

Made in EU

While most of our peers in the shoe industry are still unable to guarantee shoes that are »made in the EU«, we’re able to prove that our shoes are just that. We use leather from France and Germany, manufacture our shoes in Spain, and run distribution and logistics in Germany—our shoes are 100% made in Europe.

Environmentally sustainable

Environmentally sustainable

For many companies, all that matters are the profits; they fail to take notice of the disastrous conditions under which hides are taken in Bangladesh, or shoes are manufactured in China. We turn instead to traditional European tanneries and Spanish craftsmanship, to the benefit of man and nature alike.

Pricing

Pricing

Our promise: since you’re purchasing directly from the manufacturer, you’re spared the typical high margins. You’re also spared the additional cost of paying for a brand name. Thanks to our advantageous wide reach and our low cost structure, we’re able to offer sensationally low prices.

Transparency

Transparency

From the provenance and treatment of the leather we use, to the conditions in our Spanish factory, to delivery with our logistics partner, we don’t leave any stone unturned. We provide copious, transparent information on every step in our supply chain.
