This is the derby designed by Fabio Attanasio for Velasca in brushed calf leather. The leather sole has a small rubber island so, together with the integrated sole, each step will be more comfortable. On the toe, this shoe flaunts elegant stitching: cotton trousers and a blue blazer, ready for the weekend.
Made in Montegranaro (Italy).
The most valuable construction is called blake-rapid. It’s characterized by a double binding (blake and rapid, precisely): while the first attaches upper, lining and insole; the second one secures the insole and outside sole together. The shoes are therefore easy to resole.
Unrefined leather goes through the traditional process called “tanning”. And is treated so to prevent it from decomposition or loss in flexibility. Afterwards, the leather is put in a rotating wood barrel with water and dark brown coloring solution for dyeing. Water is then warmed up to 60°C to help the color bind to the leather for a lasting finish.
After selecting real leather and rubber as materials, this sole is made by cutting and digging its leather with a pantograph. After this process, we inject the anti-slip rubber. The final touch is extraordinary.
Our smooth calfskin leather comes from so-called full grain layer, the outermost and most valuable part of leather. It is also the one that undergoes the least processing: any veining is a guarantee of natural quality. This feature ensures that feet breathe more and that shoes last longer. And have you noticed how elegant they are?
