Our piper collection has been developed in conjunction with world class pipers for lasting comfort and maximum durability. Thistle shoes offer the best quality and durability to the pipe bands, whilst ensuring comfort on those long marches. These shoes are made using a goodyear welted construction, one of the best quality shoe construction in the world. The quality of the welt and finished lock stitch can clearly be seen on the traditional commando sole unit.
The shoe is leather lined to allow the foot to breathe and includes a padded leather insole and top line for maximum comfort around the heel and ankle. Featured on this shoe are the traditional steel quarter tips which are hand screwed into the heel.
