Its SOFTNESS and COMFORT are ensured by the construction of this shoe, which is made by completely hand stitching the upper on a layer of leather that you can see when looking at the shoe from the outside on its side. The elastic on the back is soft, it allows the shoe not to slip out even in case of very slim feet. It moreover holds the instep.
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 insole inside is composed of two layers: the layer touching the foot is made in the same leather as the lining, under the foot skin there is a layer in memory laying on the layer in leather on which the shoe is hand stitched.
