Thyra Gorm shoes are made to last. The leather sole and upper are stitched with wax thread and a full leather heel guarantees a strong structure. The outer sole is rubber and can be replaced with a new one if needed. The Thyra Gorm shoe’s last is a result of a long design process, aiming at perfect fit and comfort for your feet.
