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

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.

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.

New Brand: Samuel Hubbard Shoes

Samuel Hubbard shoes

 

We’d like to introduce to you our new Samuel Hubbard shoes!  We can sum up this new brand in two words: comfort and style.  We think these are two of the most important words in the footwear industry, which is part of why we’ve welcomed this new brand into our family.  We also understand that you may need more than two words to be convinced, so keep scrolling down to learn more about Samuel Hubbard shoes!

Comfort Technology:

  • Leather Uppers: Durable, fashionable, and soft leather in smooth or nubuck finishes.
  • Full Leather Linings: Full glove leather-linings,  ‘hung’ inside the shoe rather than glued, for superior breathability.
  • The Tongue: Softly-padded, leather-lined tongue evenly distributes lace tension across the instep.
  • The Padded Collar: A hidden padded collar minimizes discomfort.
  • Strong Stitching: Durable and stable stitch-down construction.
  • Samuel Hubbard Shoe Insoles: Removable, triple-density Hubbard insoles cushion your forefoot with memory foam.  A vegetable-tanned leather top layer wicks perspiration away and feels “silky” underfoot.
  • Heel Support: Lateral heel support comes from a fiber-reinforced heel counter and cupped heel insole.
  • Rocker Profile: Sole design “rolls” your foot forward so your feet flex the shoe less often. Since your foot works less often, Samuel Hubbard shoes are less tiring to wear than traditional shoes.
  • Pure Kevlar: A lightweight Kevlar shank provides arch support.
  • Resole-ability: Construction designed for ease of resoling with new Vibram® soles.
  • Custom Soles: Vibram® custom-made Morflex® sole  provides terrific shock absorption, although  Samuel Hubbard shoes are 30% lighter weight than many other resole-able shoes.

 

Style:

One of our favorite things about Samuel Hubbard shoes is their versatility.  These comfortable styles have a pleasing aesthetic that pairs well with jeans, slacks, khakis and chinos. They’re the perfect footwear to take straight from the workweek into the weekend.
