INTRODUCTION

Each of our shoes follows the centuries-old tradition of Italian craftsmanship, the one handed down from father to son, from generation to generation. We make them in the heart of Italy ― in Montegranaro, the Marche region ― where the whole urban fabric is built on the craft of shoemaking. Together with the artisans, we select the best materials to get that kind of quality you expect in our products. From choosing the leather, or the binding technique, to the application of the sole, every step is handmade in Italy.

CHAPTER TWO

The materials

From researching the best leather in the market, to the type of sole and shape for each model of the collection. All our materials are chosen to create the highest quality handmade shoes.

The leather

Top shelf only

Our artisans work only with French calf leather, the finest. From full grain — soft and natural — to suede, nubuck, tumbled, or polished binder leather: quality is guaranteed.

The soles

If there’s one part of the shoe that carries with it the shoe’s history from day one, it’s the sole. We offer leather soles for a classic walk. And for a more casual style, we choose high-quality rubber soles of the Italian company Vibram.

Leather

Made with real leather, our soles respect and pay homage to tradition. They’re made from the best bovine leather in the market and gain their distinct color through “vegetal tanning”. And, they’re made to last over time.

Vibram rubber

High quality and superior durability. Under some of our shoes is the Vibram winter rubber sole, the best in the market. It’s made to walk on any surface, especially outdoors. Rain and snow are no longer an issue.

Sneakers Rubber

With it’s rubber, it pays respect to the traditions of sneaker culture. Technically called “box bottom” it’s made with 100% rubber. With a very light, smooth and flat sole, it’s suitable for a refined and casual all-purpose look.

Para

Para soles are made with rubber taken from the smoked lattice. Guess where this term comes from? From the Brazilian area called Parà, where the wild plants from which lattice is extracted grow. A natural material for a flexible and comfy shoe.

Leather & Rubber

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.

Anvil Rubber

With the highest Italian quality and long lasting features, under the shoe there is a solid rubber. The sole is so resistant because the exterior is made of rubber while the interior is leather. This makes a superb double sole.

CHAPTER THREE

The construction

From our handcrafted production methods to the selection of materials, we pay close attention to the way our shoes are constructed — which means they’ll last. Every stage of construction is done by hand, and we match the best sole for each type of shoe. From the soft and flexible Blake sole, to the more sophisticated Blake-Rapid sole construction, each makes your shoes easy to resole. With the Tubular sole, you’ll feel as though you’re wearing your favourite pair of slippers. And, we’ve gone with the Lateral sole construction for our Sneakers.
