The suede derby designed by Fabio Attanasio for Velasca. Suede is made from the crust of calfskin (which is the softest layer) from English tanneries: it is silky-smooth when you touch it. The leather sole has a small rubber island so, together with the integrated insole, every step will be more comfortable. On the toe, this shoe flaunts its elegant stitching. Cashmere turtleneck and corduroy pants, and you’re 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.
Suede calf leather comes from the innermost layer of leather, which is worked through buffing: it consists of abrading the surface, which reveals its typical velvety effect.
