Kawasaki shoes

The producer of this well known brand of shoes is handling some production for us at Tezla. Using these standard molds we can offer something with a different detail.

Made in Europe

A friend came into the office wearing this simple canvas shoe. It turned out to have come from Poland a few years ago. Now it is my job to locate the factory, make contact, arrange a visit to look into the factory archive and select models which have potential for our customers. These shall then need an update of fabric and some detailing to give a modern workable shoe.

Very reliable European shoe factory

Here you see El Ganso's classic Tigra shoe in various colour combinations following the stitching room being assembled by hand prior to going into the vulcanising chamber for the high temperature bonding process which gives them the tough bonded finish. These workers are very reliable and the factory manager is producing a very good volume of shoes for us.

simple vulcanised pump

Simple canvas and suede pump. Made in Europe, detail from a customer who wanted to come back to Europe with production to improve his position in the battle against excessive fuel costs involved with Chinese production and transport. Local being best.
