What are the holes on each shoe for?

All our models have a rubber sole with four ventilation holes on each side. This innovative design, patented since 1936, provides permanent natural ventilation inside the shoe. This is the key to the ingenuity of the Spring Court!

What materials are used in the design of the models?

Selected with the greatest care for their durability, our materials are designed to be worn in all seasons. For the design of our shoes, we use materials such as: cotton (canvas, twill), full grain leather (cowhide, lambskin sourced in France, goatskin), suede and linen.

The glue used in the manufacture of our shoes does not contain any animal products.


Are the insoles removable?

Each shoe has a removable insole. Made of shock absorbing cells and the Spring Court natural ventilation system, its lightness and flexibility guarantee exceptional comfort, adapted to the shape of your foot.

Where is the current production located?

Spring Court is produced in two locations:

- In Spain, where each shoe is manufactured using the direct vulcanisation technique.

- In Vietnam, close to the fields of rubber trees grown in these regions, a major component of rubber. In addition to ensuring the quality of our materials, this location allows us to meet the supply needs of our export markets, such as Japan and Australia, whilst providing a more considered approach to transport and local supply.


What is vulcanisation?

Invented in the mid-19th century by Charles Goodyear, vulcanisation involves stabilising raw rubber by adding sulphur. After heating and/or compression, the vulcanised rubber part is UV-stable and has elastomeric properties. After mechanical stress, which can deform it up to several times its size, the material is returned to its original dimensions and desired shape.

Since 1963, we have developed a unique process called "direct vulcanisation" which consists of vulcanising the sole and the upper of the shoe in the same mould. Thanks to the closing pressure of the mould, the rubber penetrates naturally into the fibres of the upper fabric, thus avoiding the use of adhesives and solvents. The implementation of this manufacturing process requires the design of specific moulds.
