Realization and comfort
Hand-assembled thong, with lining and footbed in color- and chemical-free, vegetable tanned leather. Natural tanning ensures an optimal absorption of the sweat, with no risk of dermatitis, abrasions and mycosis. Also advisable for contact allergies caused by chromium and MCS (multiple chemical sensitiveness). The foot bed in full-grain is specially soft and fresh, and leaves the foot dry even in case of relevant perspirations and hyperhidrosis, also preventing the formation of bad smells. The insole is of new conception: the outer profile that you can see is made in cork and latex, then it has an inner core in natural latex, which increases its comfort. Cork and latex ensure resistance and flexibility and, in contrast to other thongs in the market, so not tear apart in the bending points. No special washing or maintenance is requested.
Wholesomeness and transpirability: NATURE INSIDE
The feature related to our shoes lining is the most important for us. The part that gets in contact with the foot has to be specially thought of and wholesome, that’s why we keep on stressing, in such a way that may seem manic, that we do not want harmful plastic covering a shoe. Our experience has taught us for years that the only real solution for the foot not to suffer neither from nail mycosis, nor from chemical contact allergies, is to envelop it in bovine origin leather, tanned with vegetable extracts named TANNINS. The leather for the lining has to be not colored, nor dyed, nor plastered to cancel possible small faults. We want it to be natural and, if anyone complains because there are small scratches o minimal color irregularities, they need to understand that only modified nature is flawless, and to modify nature you need chemistry. In our shoes you’ll find linings that are nature at it purest. To sum up: the inside if the shoe is lined with full-grain bovine leather, tanned with vegetable chestnut, quebracho and mimosa tannins, with no chromium and no colorants, for an effective absorption of the sweat. This leather is compatible with the most sensitive skins. The leathers for the lining are bacteriostatic, that is they maintain the correct bacterial charge of the foot unaltered from a quantity and a quality point of view, never allowing the development of bacteria that are responsible for bad smell.
The sole is realized in a mix of natural rubber (it is not Thermoplastic Rubber, that is a plastic that if often passed off as rubber). It ensures a very good grip on smooth and wet floors and an excellent resistance to abrasion, flexibility and elasticity.
