The Drum Dye Story
These shoes have been handcrafted in our factory using a specialised washing technique.
The leather has to be tanned to a certain level, which means it is ready to absorb the different colour dyes. The shoes are lovingly assembled, removed from the last and soaked in water.
They are then placed into an industrial sized washing machine – occasionally we add stones for different effects.
Once removed, they are left to dry in a heat-controlled room.
Finally, we apply a unique cream for added colour and brush to shine. Each element – water temperature, speed of the wash, timing – and the hand made processes are all key to the final result.

1. HOW TO MEASURE
To measure your foot length, stand on a level floor with the back of your heels against a straight edge or wall
Measure your foot length by placing a ruler flat on the floor straight alongside the inside of your foot from your heal to your toes.
Place an object with a flat edge straight across your toes with the edge touching the tip of your longest toe. Take the measurement (in millimetres) from the ruler where the flat edge crosses (see image below). This is your foot length measurement.
2. SELECTING A SHOE SIZE
If your foot measurement is halfway between sizes, you may be best with the larger size, but please remember this is only a guide.
You may find one foot is longer than the other, this is quite normal, just go for the larger size when making your shoe size selection.
