After five years of manufacturing and inventing for other brands, Portee has set out to create the shoes that we've always wanted to make. Shoes that are handmade with classic craftsmanship and all natural materials that last.
We are passionate about what we do, and in every role, believe in building love, lasting relationships, and meaningful work. Our coalition is led by Adhi Nugraha who is a founder of LTHRKRFT Boots and Leather goods who taking roles in other areas of the business and Gunantyo Suci who is the founder of Emmet Brown Shoes that head designer and shoemaker for the collection.
Thanks for stopping by.
Portee is pronounced, Porr . Tee
Every pair of shoes in the Porteegoods Collection is handmade by our top-level craftsman.
Lasts are developed in-house with our custom fit department, we are using Italian last that exclusive to our collection, lasts are not purchased from a library and not available to another private label.
Leathers are hand waxed and burnished using small batch crust leathers. Each pair is cut from a single hide. Master Cutters use the best and most appropriate parts of the hide for each specific pattern piece to help ensure that the shoes will hold their shape and wear well over time.
Each layer of the upper is hand-lasted, one at a time starting with the lining, then skived reinforcements and finally the outermost layer of upper leather.
Full leather linings are supple soft, but very strong and tanned to last. Heel piece is sueded to prevent slippage.
Outsoles are individually cut from leather bends and hand welted, a painstaking process generally reserved for bespoke shoemaking. Multi-strand linen treads are unraveled and pulled through beeswax, then hand-sewn at a tight 6mm from stitch to stitch.
Finally, each pair of Portee shoes is hand finished - from uppers to outsole bottoms to edge finishing.
