Cordwaining (shoe making) is a dying skill and industry in the US, but Unsung House are keeping that trade alive. Brothers Grant and Isaac Gustafson are true innovators in footwear repair, being focused on repairs of high-end boots for people who deeply care about them. In addition to doing resoles and repair work, they will relast boots (what's that? It's cool. Read more here). They also make boots in-house - a sleek Engineer and a lace-up Slog boot.
Unsung House is run by brothers Grant and Isaac Gustafson from Nashville, Tennesse. They resole, repair and relast shoes and boots using a variety of the best materials and methods. Choose your midsole, outsole, stitching color and hand welted construction types (flat welt, Norwegian welt, storm welt, stitchdown and more).
Charlie works at S&S NYC and had Unsung House relast a pair of engineer boots that didn't fit him very well. The result was a resurrected pair of boots that were the exact pair inside his mind. He cherishes them.
