Mainline wholecut shoes, or to be more exact, Mainline wholecut oxfords are the pinnacle of shoe-making.

The clean lines and stunning shape require extra work and additional costs to achieve. A Wholecut shoe is produced from one single large piece of leather, which must be free of any imperfections.

On a shoe design that is made from individual pieces of leather sewn together, the shoemaker can cut around any imperfections and discard them. This is not possible on a wholecut shoe. The only seam present is at the back of the heel.

For this reason, a wholecut shoe is more difficult to produce as it’s shape is moulded entirely by the lasting process – you do not benefit from the natural shaping that is provided by stitching different pieces together.

Wholecut shoes are often left completely plain however at Civardi we can offer wholecuts with either a punched toe design or indeed a full-punched wholecut.

The range of wholecuts shown above is only a selection of what is possible with Civardi Shoes. All Civardi designs can be fully customised by you simply by choosing the “customise & order” option.

So, please have fun experimenting with each design until you have created your own unique mainline whole cut shoes – our artisan craftsmen will bring your vision to life!
