General Information

A four-season loafer.

This Dinkelacker men‘s loafer is also made of horse leather from the Horween tannery in Chicago, featuring distinctive contrasting saddle stitching; the crossbar, characteristic for a loafer, is hand sewn. The sole is made up of two layers; the heel is reinforced with 30 brass pins hammered in following the traditional 6-pin arrangement. The leather, the sole and the relatively high closed form ensure that the shoe can be worn all year round. Despite its rugged style, it seems more reserved; not in the least because the „beefrolls“ often found on loafers on the right and left sides of the instep were deliberately omitted. Only at Manufactum can you get these loafers in Oxblood, the classic color for horsehide.

Handcraft from Budapest. Heinrich Dinkelacker .

Shoes from the workshop of Heinrich Dinkelacker have been made in Budapest since the 1960s and prior to that from 1879 in Sindelfingen in southern Germany. What makes these shoes outstanding is their fit, but above all their exceptional craftsmanship. Each Dinkelacker shoe requires 300 different procedures. After the prototype has been made, the patterns are cut; and after a very careful selection the leather that makes up the shaft for the uppers is cut. This leather is then steamed and the shaft is stretched over the wooden shoe lasts, nailed and the following day re-pinched. After a week the leather is taken from the last – machine-made shoes usually only stay on the last for 30 minutes! – This guarantees that the shoe maintains its form and fit for many years to come.
The insole is crafted by hand to the shape of the last, uppers, lining and welts are then sewn to it – there is no better connection.

Please note:

this high-laced ankle boot has been cut on a relatively slim last. For this reason, please order a close fit – horse leather ‘gives’ with time.
