Do you own this classic essential?

Wholecuts have been a quintessential part of a well bred gentleman. For centuries men have polished their appearances with the subtle yet elegant Wholecut shoe.

What are wholecuts you ask? Handcrafted wholecuts are made from a single piece of leather, hence the name ‘whole-cut’. The ‘upper’ of each shoe is cut from a large and unblemished piece of leather and that is why these are the best shoes money can buy.

Wholecuts are not a new innovation, these shoes have been admired since centuries. Recently, well in 2008, world’s oldest wholecut leather shoe named Areni-1 was found in mint condition in a cave in Vayots Dzor of Armenia by Archaeologists Boris Gasparyan and Gregory Areshian. These shoes tailor made from a single piece of cowhide have been radiocarbon dated to 3,500 BC. Yes you read that right 3,500 BC, like they say, class is timeless.

It is known that wholecuts cannot worn be worn with everything and we at Bonford agree. These unique pieces of art should only be let out on special occasions.
