What You Can Expect With The Lapworth:  

1. Full-Grain Leather

The Lapworth in Wax Black uses a finely waxed, full-grain leather.

This is the type of leather that wears in with age and becomes more comfortable as you wear it.  

In the tanning process, we make sure this leather is tanned all the way through. This takes much longer and cost a lot more, but also makes a shoe last significantly longer than a flash tanned leather most manufactured shoes use today.

2. Fully Leather Linning:

The Lapworth is fully leather lined. This means the entire inside of the shoe has a leather liner. Other shoes avoid this because it is costly. But, with a fully-lined leather shoe, you get the most comfortable interior feel. Leather has a smooth surface that glides on your foot. When a shoe has a full leather lining, there's a huge difference in feel compared to shoes that just uses fabric.

3. Full Leather, Cork Filled Sole

The Lapworth features a full leather sole that is cork filled. This gives a lever of padding that is Unique to our brand and what some say.. is the most comfortable of all barefoot shoes they have ever tried.

The feeling with our cork filled sole is one that adapts to your foot and adjust for your individual walking style.

This combined with an all leather sole is what makes our shoes so much more unique than the other brands.

4. Grounding Effect

Leather in the middle of our sole makes our shoes conductive. If you're into Earthing or Grounding, our shoes will give you the Earthing effect where negative ions are discharged from your body into the Earth. Theories on Ground suggest the release of these negative ions reduce the inflammation in your body and cause whole array of health benefits. When we heard about this, we had to give that extra little touch to have a grounding effect.

5. Wax Laces

Only the highest quality wax laces for our shoes. We attempt to have every piece at the best quality possible, and we didn't stop at the laces. We use a wax coated lace that gives The Lapworth that small, little extra touch.

6. Full Guarantee:

Most of our customers say our shoes look much better in person when they receive them in the mail. But we know what it's like to buy a product you have not personally seen before. And with that being said, if for any reason, you do not like our shoes.. Simply send them back, and we will refund all your money. No Questions. No Hassle.

Though on the flip side, once you try our shoes and experience the unique fit and feel we provide, you may become hooked and never go back to regular shoes again.  


What's different from your shoes vs. the other brands?

We are the only all-leather barefoot shoe on the market. From the sole to the inner lining, to the outer shell, every component in our shoes is made from leather. This gives a very unique feel that adjust to your foot over time. And, high quality leather also last significantly longer than other materials, so with our shoes, yo get a product you can be proud to own for years to come.

How is the leather in DaVinci Shoes different from other leather?

When it comes to leather, the high grade material is not cheap and we only use the highest quality. True full-grain leather needs to be hand selected to avoid imperfections and then tanned for many weeks with the right type of oils. This ensures the leather will not rip or tear with use and can also stand up to the elements. This also gives the leather a very rich color that penetrates all the way through. It can be waxed and shined when dirty to bring out even more of a luster.   Cheap leather on the other hand is either coated with plastic or finished in a way where the outside is sanded off. Surprisingly, most goods (including many luxury brands) will use this cheap leather for their products because most consumers cannot tell the difference when a product is brand new. It's only over time where the leather either rips or turns grey where it shoes.

How thick is the sole?

Our sole is 6mm thick and it is a cork filled leather sole with rubber on the front and back. There is leather in the middle to give it a more flexible mid-section that adds to the barefoot feel.

Is there a grounding effect to your shoes?

Yes. Leather is conductive in the right conditions and with an all leather mid sole, our shoes provide a grounding effect. This means your body is grounded to the Earth like when walking barefoot. The theory behind ground claims that when walking barefoot on the Earth, you discharge negative ions that help with healing the body by reducing inflammation.

What is the barefoot feel like?

The barefoot feel our shoes provide is very unique. The all leather construction combined with the leather liner provide an extremely smooth feel that adjust to your foot over time. This provides a softer feeling that coats your foot and is more like a soft glove rather than a shoe.

What size should I order?

Our sizes run large. Some of our customers prefer this fit as it provides more room for your foot to stretch when stepping. Order a 1/2 smaller if you are unsure of the size to order.
