What is a Good Year welted sole?
- This process is the traditional method for the manufacturing of mens dress shoes and it takes its name from the inventor who came up with the original hand sewn method. The benefit of a dress shoe which is made using the Goodyear welt construction is that the system allows for constant flow of air through the shoe, which keeps the shoes ventilated, durable and strong. These types of soles can also be replaced.

Would the shoes I order look same as on the photo?
- The distinctive finishing on the leathers of BED|STU product is created in our workshops one piece at a time. This unique hand finishing process results in no two products ever looking the same. The differences in tone and texture are a statement to their authenticity which we proudly stand behind.
How do I determine my belt size?
- Belts are sized in inches and should be ordered 2 inches larger than your pants size. To find out what size you wear, first decide whether you will be wearing the belt around your waist or lower on your hips. For waist belts, take a measurement around your natural waistline (at the belly button). This is normally the smallest part of your torso. For hip belts, take a measurement around the fuller part of your hips where your jeans will normally fall.
TIP: Use a belt that you already own and that fits you well to find your belt size! Lay out the belt and measure from one end (not including the buckle) to the hole that you most frequently use.

What does BED|STU Organics mean?
- Our materials are natural, biodegradable, sustainable and recycled where possible.
- Our leathers and linings are vegetable tanned, free from heavy metals such as lead and chrome, free range where possible.
- Our dyes are from plants and/or soils, water based, and applied by hand.
- Our glues are water based, solvent free and used sparingly.
- Our products are finished by hand, and are made up of primarily organic components such as latex cushioned insoles, rubber for soles, vegetable tanned leather, cork (from trees), biodegradable supports and water based glues and dyes.
Any differences in the look and feel of an organic shoe?
- Our organic leather is initially not as soft and supple as the commonly used chrome tanned version.
BED|STU Organics products will require some break in time. Once broken in, the user can expect to enjoy the quality and customized fit that will last over time.
BED|STU Organics leathers can be shined, treated and nourished with creams and brought back to a natural luster that is not attainable in most other footwear.
- Our organic leather, because it is natural, needs a bit of time to blend or mold with your foot, creating that custom “glove-like” fit. The dynamics of this intricate process takes a bit of time and varies depending on the style, the anatomy of the user’s foot, and the time of each wear. Most users experience this unique custom fit within their first 2-3 wears.
- Organic leather has more overall luster.
Is it better for the employees to work with BED|STU Organics?
Yes. Most leathers used in the footwear industry are chrome tanned, which can lead to health problems for the tannery workers. We want to minimize the exposure to these harmful chemicals where we can.
What kind of testing do we use?
Every batch of our leather is SGS tested to verify no known harmful chemicals or toxins are used on our leathers.
Why is organic better for me?
- No harmful chemicals.
- Low environmental impact.
- Product is more sustainable.
- Shoes produced with vegetable tanned leathers have significantly higher absorption and desorption properties and will keep the user’s feet dry.
