PARTRIDGE SHOES LAST SKETCH

THE LAST

The Thomas Partridge last takes its inspiration from old military boots.  The distinctive ‘toe spring’ allowed footwear to roll when the boots were heavy and rigid.  Whilst the new last pays homage to the old military boots, our Thomas Partridge last was engineered in Northampton for a perfect fit.

THE COMFORT FOOT-BED

Cupped at the back,  gently contoured and finished with butter-soft leather the foot-bed ensures Thomas Partridge shoes are instantly wearable.  This footbed can be removed if required for Orthotics.

TOM’S SHOCK ABSORBER

Hidden underneath the contoured leather insock is Tom’s secret shock absorber.  It is a high density foam set into the insole board.  This helps makes the shoe comfortable right from the first wear.

TOM’S PREFLEX

To top it off, the insoles in all Thomas Partridge Shoes are ‘pre-flexed’.  This means no ‘breaking-in’ of our shoes.

ENGINEERING THE SOLE

In the quest for comfort the sole is made from rubber which is soft underfoot, flexible and very durable (see wear test notes!)

DESIGNING THE UPPER

All Thomas Partridge shoes feature gently padded collars and tongues, leather uppers and supersoft leather linings, the hidden TP heel pad covered by the removeable contoured leather footbed.  Finished off with waxed cotton laces.
