The “Sunday Mississippi" of n.d.c. is a limited-edition shoe made for the “Cabinet of Curiosities” by Thomas Erber and to be presented from 29 November to 31 December 2016.
Inspired by the working class of the 1920s, the godillot[i] (combat boot) “Sunday Mississippi” is manufactured with the greatest respect for tradition by the finest craftsmen in Europe—experts in handcrafted shoes.
Mounted on a traditional construction Blake, the shoe combines the strength of calf leather as shown here in a range of khaki and brown to the refined exoticism of vintage alligator skin.
The patinated, aged aspect of n.d.c collections results from a process of manufacturing, which brings the brand special care.
The shoes are first soaked in an infusion of bark, minerals, and other natural ingredients and, then, are washed with natural soap and dried slowly before being coated with a balm specially designed by n.d.c. to give them an “already-made” appearance
