Chukka bespoke boot in desert grey
blake rapid double leather dissected for show

The Blake-Rapid construction can be described as a continuation of the single leather Blake Stitch construction. It adds an outsole, covering the Blake stitches underneath. To properly attach the outsole, Rapid stitching is introduced around the perimeter of the midsole and outsole, producing a welted look. The first sole is sewn from the inside together with the upper and the insole, while the second sole is joined to the first with a seam outside, obtaining improved isolation from the elements, making it easy to resole, making it sturdier and weatherproof, while enjoying a low cost and efficient stitching process. Resoling is easy as detailing the outsole does not affect the structure of the Blake Stitch underneath.
