Every pair of Rilee shoes is crafted by a lone shoemaker. Each piece of leather is hand-selected-the most exquisite, luscious leathers make the cut. The leather hides remains whole until it is requested to be built into footwear.
The leather is stretched, sliced, hammered, nailed, filed, buffed, carved, smoothed...
Shoemaking is slow work, because every step of the process demands pure devotion and passion for the creation of a beautiful pair.
A shoemaker has the luxury of creating footwear that factories cannot dream of recreating...we are free to form shoes out minimally processed leathers for a look only handcrafted shoes can possibly possess.
