Oxblood Shoes – Zürich’s Finest Shoestore

Oxblood Shoes – Introduction

Shoes are an important accessory of a gentleman. You’re always expected to wear them with a certain respect, dignity and cleanliness. Last week, we had the great pleasure to visit the store and meet the manager (Claude Locher) of oxbloodshoes in Zurich. The shop comes up with the world’s largest selection of horween shell cordovan shoes.

Each pair is unique, handmade and based on the highest possible quality.

Oxblood Shoes – What is it about?

Shell Cordovan – the best leather in the world

Cordovan is an equine leather made from the flat muscle (or shell) beneath the hide on the rump of the horse.

The handmade production of these shoes is one of the really ancient arts of shoemakery.
The process of gaining & crafting the shell leather can take up to 6 months.

It means, always using formulas that cut no corners, and components chosen strictly for their quality. In today’s market, where speed and flexibility are at a premium, Horween Tannery ensures an unparalleled blend of quality, consistency, responsiveness, and innovation. 

Only the best shoemakers from America and Europe use Shell Cordovan from Horween. 

Oxblood Shoes – The Sole – JR (Joh. Rendenbach)

The traditional method of oak-bark ground-tanning has prevailed through four generations of leathermaking at Rendenbach.

Leather with the JR-Brand label is waterproof and extremely abrasion resistant, tough yet flexible, very comfortable to wear and optically distinguished by its attractive grain and warm, woody colour.

And what can possibly be better than driving one of the most beautiful and powerful cars in the world?

Before reaching the highest thrones, something very important is missing.
We’re not there yet. We’re moving towards perfection but we’re not there.

What’s missing? You’re right. A beautiful woman. One that let’s the stars shine brighter than ever. One that holds your breath when walking in.

And where can a gentleman and his woman possibly spend their week-end?
In a castle. It’s not just a castle, it’s THE castle. Astonishing doesn’t even describe this marvellous place.

Shine stars, make us brighter. Enlarge our passion. Make us flying through the universe. Deeper into the sea, further into the skies of the universe. Where everything ends and starts. Where all exists, where all is just one. Connected to each other.

Car review – Bentley Continental GTC
 
With a weight of 2,5 tons, this car is huge. And if I say huge, I mean huge in a very good way. Power and elegance, a real car for a gentleman. The purring V8 is producing 560 HP & 650 NM.

Snow? No Problem! It’s four-wheel drive supercar.

The cockpit of the Continental GT Convertible has been designed to provide tactile and visual delight, together with outstanding levels of comfort. Beautiful light brown leather on the seats, the chrome dials are one of the details I have really enjoyed.
