 Our Project is featured on:

 

 

 

Pilgrim Footwear Company was founded by two friends  Arfu and Aji Agung after doing research and development since early 2014. Travelling to many cities known for their expertise in footwear industry, we see first hand the potential of Indonesian material producers, Tanneries and craftmanship necessary to make quality footwear. We later set up a small and humble workshop in 2015 and gathering local talents that have been working in Industry for years.  

Footwear that we want to build is something that isn't only essential to complete the look and satisfy the eyes, but also a dependable companion in a journey of achieving higher accomplishment. They later will become an embodiment of someone's experience, and will tell to those who stare what they've been going through.

We see people drive themselves everyday to do things that will make themselves become a better one. Going step by step, miles by miles, make achievements one after another, and in turn, they giving back to society. It inspired us to do the same in our field. We have made many boots before, and always seek for ways to make a better boots than we made before

So we call this release "The Milestone Series", as it symbolizes the advancement on our journey of boot making so far. To make this release special, we develop our own vegetable tanned leather for the upper of the boots. We choose one of the best yet the oldest tannery in Indonesia, Kasin Leather in Malang, East Java, as our partner. Their work in producing high quality vegetable tanned leather articles is well known in domestic and export market. For the outsole department, we choose Dainite studded rubber sole, as it has this kind of equilibrium we seek between aesthetical and practicality aspect for urban environment. And to unite them all we use Handsewn Goodyear welt / Hand welt method for the construction.

We want to make boots that is comfort straight from out of the box, and will conform to your feet along with the usage. We use Leather and foam footbed plus arch support to reduce fatigue, and vegetable tanned insole & midsole that will conform to your feet as you walk by miles. 

Handsewn Goodyear welt / Hand welt method is one of the best method to attached shoe upper with the soles. Its all leather structure creates a stronger and more reliable bond. This kind of method is only applied on high-end or bespoke footwear. Besides it’s durability and strength, this construction allow you to easily resole the rubber outsole when it’s worn out (would take many years). We use two kind of welt for this release, the flat one for sleeker looks and storm welt one for more waterproofing.

Risks and challenges

The risks we are concern about are producing boots below our standard of quality, and late in project / reward delivery. To avoid these we have to make some adjustment in production line and pre-production activities.

Our suppliers and our workshop are ready to go. We have discuss and prepare everything in details to make this project comes to life, From materials availability to product standards.

And to better schedule our delivery, we limit the number of boots for each month of delivery. Our first delivery is planned on April, where we will send the first 150 pairs and each following month will also be limited to keep the standards of quality.
