Softness and comfort
Super comfortable loafer, very comfortable to a bare foot. Suede upper, lined in soft full-grain leather tanned with vegetable TANNINS, with no chromium nor colorants: this leather respects even the most sensitive skins and causes no contact allergies, irritations, mycosis. Moreover, even in case of a consistent perspiration, the inside of the shoe stays dry and does not produce bad smells. Fine handmade tubular manufacture, giving the utmost comfort to the bare foot. No socks needed. The part covering the forefoot is stitched to the sides of the upper not with threads, but with a real leather tape, that is passed by hand with no needle, strongly featuring the aesthetics of this style, together with other non conventional details; the wide and round sole like a ballet flat, the collar enveloping the heel, secured by a leather tape with a x motif, the squared leather lace nicely playing on the instep volumes enables to adapt this loafer to the foot after the natural widening of the leather. The squared lace going around the loafer is inserted inside a slot and never touches the foot, therefore avoiding any complaint even on the instep.

Wholesomeness and transpirability: NATURE INSIDEThe 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 inner insole in leather is removable, so that it can be replaced with one’s own customized footbed or with another same insole or with our ORMA insole, at the end of a first use cycle. It is covered in bovine full-grain leather as the lining and has the same bacteriostatic features. Underneath the leather there’s a soft memory foam made of expanded polyurethane microcells with two different densities in the heel as compared to the foot sole. It perfectly absorbs the sweat and produces no bad smells.
The sole in realized in a natural rubber mix (it’s not Thermoplastic Rubber, that is a plastic 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.
