Saint Crispin is a genuine Romanian shoemaker of whose factory based in Brasov, known as the Transylvania bastion of shoemaking since 1463.
Saint Cripsin’s style is imbued by traditional craftsmanship, and timeless elegance. What makes Saint Cripsin’s footwear so special is that everything is handmade, from the shoe box, to shoe last, even shoe laces are made in their factory. The shoes are hand welted and hand lasted, and wooden nails are used to peg the waist. Saint Crispin’s only allows in their manufacturing process the use of a 80 years old manual crank type MS 200 machine from Rafflenbeul for the outsole stitching, as the result is very similar to hand stitched sole for a skilled hand.
