Black Label Derby's by Will's
A pair of Goodyear Welted shoes can take up to eight weeks to make using up to 75 shoe parts and over 200 different operations to create. The origins of this method go back over three hundred years. The method is generally regarded throughout the worldwide shoe making industry as the very best way of making superior shoes.The “welt” is a strip of microfibre which is sewn around the bottom edge of a shoe. This stitching (the welt seam) attaches the welt to both the insole and the upper of the shoe. The welt is folded out to form a point of attachment for the outer sole. The outer sole is sewn to the welt, with a heavy-duty lock-stitch seam. Crucially, this stitching runs around the outside of the sole (rather than piercing the part under the foot) to maximise the sole’s water-resistance.
As the shoe is worn the fit of the shoe just gets better as its components mould to the shape of your foot and therefore the shoe just gets more and more comfortable.

Bridging the gap between everyday people and ethically produced vegan shoes. Wills is about getting the latest fashions out there at fair prices, while not hurting animals or people in the process. No matter who you are or where you’re going in life, Wills are there for when you want to make a positive choice. The entire range is free of animal products while workers are paid in accordance with European guidelines. Wills really is an animal and human friendly company. My contemporary designs echo the high street trends, packed into four seasons giving you a year round alternative. Wills are designed with quality in mind. The range is created with microfibers that look, wear, breathe and resist water just like leather. I believe buying something well made saves money, provides something to cherish and is better for our environment. Best of all my shoes match the high street prices dropping the barriers to living an ethical life.
