Time-honoured techniques handed down over time and traditional construction methods shaped by
the expert hands of artisans make Doucal’s products unique in their form and contemporary style.
The defining feature of this construction method is the way in which
the lining is crafted, sewn into what is called a ‘bag’ or ‘sock’ on the last.
This artisan working method produces extremely flexible, soft footwear.
Flexibility and lightness are guaranteed by Blake construction, a technique in which a
single seam unites the outsole, lining, upper and insole.
In Strobel construction, the upper is sewn to the insole, creating a ‘bag’ or ‘sock’ that
is then sewn to the outsole. This special construction method has many applications
in the world of sneakers, applied according to Doucal’s canons, where lightness and
comfort come together for a modern look.
