We are able to adjust the shoe to any irregular shape of the foot included in the range of cases that can be tackled without the need for a custom-made shoe.

Wholesomeness and freshness

The inside is completely lined in full-grain bovine leather, tanned with vegetable tannins with no chromium and no colorants, for an effective absorption of the sweat with no formation of bad smells. This leather is compatible with the most sensitive foot skins, prevents irritations and mycosis, and does not cause contact allergies. The (outer) upper leather is 100% vegetable tanned and naturally greased. 


The sole is realized in a light VIBRAM Gumlite mix ensuring a very good grip on smooth and wet floors.

Removable inner insole 

The inner insole is made in leather doubled with PORON (which is a MEMORY), it is removable, allowing its replacement with a personal customized footbed or with another identical insole, at the end of a first use cycle. Poron is a visco-elastic material, with a unique cushioning capability: it has been proved that it can disperse the shock wave caused by the impact foot-ground up to 99%, it therefore does not anyhow stress the foot heel.


Our sale chain is more and more going to be focused on e-commerce because this enables us to cut intermediation costs, that we invest in the quality of our shoes. That’s why we can afford to use vegetable-tanned bovine leathers and therefore to guarantee to our customers the benefits they offer.
