Join us in welcoming J.C. Cole shoes to TheShoeMart! We have been selling fine quality J.C. Cole belts and beautiful, durable J.C. Cole shoehorns at TheShoeMart for years.  We expect no less from J.C. Cole shoes. Read on to learn more about their excellent quality below.

 

Construction

Genuine GoodYear Welt Construction

J.C. Cole shoes are Goodyear Welted.  The sturdiest available 360º leather storm welts are stitched to both the upper pattern and insole rib of the shoe. This is the strongest construction method known for shoes that provides all day comfort, support, and wear.

J.C. Cole Michail Last

Years in the making, the Michail Last is an exclusive lastmaker design created for our J.C. Cole shoes.  After many wear testings and tweakings, we believe that this last has acquired the most comprehensive fitting qualities required for the active foot. Shoes on this last run True To Size, so we recommend that you order your typical dress shoe size.

Patterns

Each upper pattern has undergone the highest scrutiny for quality and balance. J.C. Cole shoes are hand rubbed and burnished, and each pair has been matched for consistency in appearance and wear.  The distinctive handsewn Northern Cross bar tacking adds strength at points of stress.

 

JC Cole Dundee

JC Cole DundeeThe J.C. Cole Dundee is J.C. Cole’s version of a bench-made dress blucher. It’s plain-toe design makes it extremely versatile. The Dundee was inspired by the timeless English-Scottish brogues of both the Northampton, England and Galway, Scotland regions.

 

 

 

JC Cole Galway

JC Cole Galway

 

The J.C. Cole Galway is a longwing dress blucher. Like the Dundee, the Galway is inspired by classic English-Scottish brogues.  Special dies create both the meticulous pinking (saw toothed edges) and the crisp, clean diameters of the perfing (graduated pattern holes).

 

 

Components

6T_3201

Uppers

Premium select Italian calfskin leather. Hand-finished.

Linings

Smooth American cow leather lines the full shoe.

Insoles

Flexible, full-grain, veg-tanned, American leather insoles. These offer the highest consistency for “moulding” – when natural heat and moisture from the wearer’s foot imprints an individual foundation within the insoles.

7S_3203

Midsoles

Precision milled leather midsoles are attached to the outsole to ensure a consistent, solid base.

Steel Shank

A hardened steel shank is placed with the footbed, encased in a layer of natural cork.  This helps to provide consistent foot support, temperature regularion, and underfoot cushion.

Outsoles

Double oak bend leather outsoles are repairable and offer exceptional durability and stability. Great for city wear.

Heels

A repairable three-piece dovetail heel, commonly referred to as a McAfee heel, consists of stacked leather and a rubber insert for longer wear.

 

 

J.C. Cole shoes are sold exclusively in the USA at TheShoeMart and TheShoeMart.com.

12 Days of Gifts: Day 2

gift-guide-stocking-stuffers

We know not everyone is easy to shop for, so this holiday season, we’re giving you 12 days worth of gift ideas!

For day two, we’re showing you how to stuff the stocking of a serious shoe lover. I bet you’re wondering what all this stuff does, so let’s get down to the nitty gritty, shall we?

Shoe Trees

Cedar shoe trees are an essential part of caring for leather shoes. They extend the life and durability of shoes by naturally deodorizing and absorbing moisture while helping shoes retain their shape.

 

Shoe Polish

Alden Color 8 Shoe Paste Wax

Nothing makes an entrance like a superior shine.  Help make their shoes glisten with shoe care products from Alden, Meltonian, Saphir, and more.  Want to make shining even easier? Add in a Shine Mate so that shoe polish stays put!

 

Leather Defender

Alden Leather Defender

Alden Leather Defender is designed to prevent the spotting and discoloration that can occur when shoes are exposed to the elements.  Great for protecting quality footwear.  Not for use on suede or nubuck leathers.

 

Shoe Horns

Shoe HornsShoe Horns Shoe Horns

Long or short, metal or covered in leather–we have a shoe horn for everyone.  Long shoe horns are great for those that have trouble bending down to put on their shoes, while shorter ones are easier to pack.  Using this device to ease your foot into your shoe keeps you from destroying the counters, which are the “heel cups” of the shoe.  Our shoe horns make great gifts!

 

Boot Bags

Alden Boot Bags

Shoe bags and boot bags help to protect your shoes during storage or travel. These are particularly useful for keeping dust and nicks off of your formal shoes, as well as for separating your shoes from your clothes in a suitcase.
