Perfect harmony :
All our expertise for a quality shoe.
Sought and appreciated, Mc Finlay's expertise is the result of decades of experience combined with the hard work of passionate craftsmen.
Composed of a multitude of models, our collections are shaped in premium quality leather. Cutting, shaft and sole mounting reflect in every way the local expertise that can be transmitted via an in-depth learning.
Each shoe requires patience, control and dedication. In the end, each pair has something unique , like the time when every independent shoemaker was working on order for a particular client . Our daily motivation is to present a quality shoe.
A factory that perpetuates traditions.
For over thirty years, we have been working to offer you the best quality in the respect of traditions.
Our leather storage is in the back of the factory, and has wide windows so that raw materials "breathe" and that their selection is made in the light of day. Most of it comes from rearing and renowned tanneries.
Upon arrival, our skins are inspected one by one. Those with too many scars, veins - or traces of growth when it comes to young calves - are returned. All others are carefully referenced and stored. On production day, the cutter carefully examines all the pieces that make up the boot in accordance with the characteristics of the leathers that may vary from one animal to another. Cutting is performed using different tools in patterns corresponding to the upper part of the shoe, as well as strips and reinforcements. There is one pattern by size for each Mc Finlay model. Perforations and notches that lie along the seams are also made with traditional tools.
Thus, in its first draft, a new model goes into the hands of craftsmen who produce it in large quantities later. Our process is adapted from the start to the real constraints of a production. Behind each pair of shoes, an expert is working to position each foot, adjust the pressure, damp thicknesses, place the welt, assemble the sole... Any pair passes on average in the hands of fifty workers assigned to different tasks.
