- About Us
Bolton specializes in the California construction of shoes under its Grasshoppers brand and is one of very few manufacturers in the world to make this type of construction. The construction style is also known as Californian Slip lasted (force lasted) construction and is identified by its ‘California-stripe’ or ‘platform cover’ – a strip of leather that runs around the edge of the shoe. This construction is based on the centuries-old system of slipper-making where comfort is the main feature of the shoe.
The benefits of the California construction are:-
-Ultimate flexibility and comfort.
– Generous comfort fit.
– Durable long-lasting sole.
Injection-molded P.U. (Polyurethane)

This process of direct molding using PU dispenses with the need for the adhesive to attach the sole to the upper. Polyurethane is extremely self-adhesive and is known to have better wearing qualities than any other soling material of comparable density.
