There may be no such thing as the perfect shoe, but Roland has always pursued it. He insists on only using the finest quality European materials – the best English suede and full grain calf leather from the Annonay Tannery in France, one of the best tanneries in the world. His linings are made with the best cow skin, his leather soles are the hardest wearing, and his heel stacks always full leather. Whenever he sets out to design a shoe, you can be sure that the only quarter he ever gives is a hard wearing rubber one at the corner of every heel.
