The Wedding Shoes. The Office Party Shoes.
Candace by Cobblestone are the quintessential semi-formal wear.
Stand out from the crowd with our unique twist on the classic wingtip brogue. Perfect for business meetings, semi-formal ceremonies and events, evening events and especially weddings, these Cobblestones are made from the highest quality top-grain smooth leather, with a touch of full-grain goat leather. And as such, these Cobblestones are very tough and resilient.
What is the best kind of leather.
Full grain leather is the best, toughest kind of leather money can buy. It contains all the layers of the animal's hide, and as such lasts the longest.
The second best quality leathers are called top-grain. The only difference between top-grain and full-grain is that top-grain has a processed top-layer, making it smooth. The downside is that it's not as tough or durable as full-grain.
Genuine leathers are the weakest. When the toughest top layer of leather is stripped off, what you're left with is "genuine" leather. Genuine leather is significantly weaker, less durable, cheap and abundant. And not quite as valuable.
Handmade with love
Cobblestones are handmade shoes. They do not come off a production line. They're not made using machines.
Cobblestones are made by skilled workers who devote their life to learning the delicate art of shoe-making. And it shows.
