Made in Ireland! The Reel Comfort pump has been on the market since February 2000. It has a 100% leather upper, a uniquely designed, shock absorbing, double stitched sole, right to the toe (where most wear occurs) and integrated sideloops. Gone are those uncomfortable pleats while still maintaining the traditional look of our other pumps. They have recently ungraded this shoes to include a cotton/foam lining for additional comfort.
