Softness and comfort

Great comfort and long lasting sneakers, composed of special value materials. The outer upper is in very soft bovine leather of superior quality; the good adaptability and softness of its leather, the generously comfortable last, its long lacing, make this style fit for large foot soles and high insteps.

Please write us a note once you’ve purchased or contact us before purchasing if you have annoying callus on your feet, bunions, hammer toes o any irregularity in your feet that concerns you. 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. We have solved several problems of shoe adjustment with simple actions before shipping.

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.

Removable insole

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.


Handmade product, repairable and resolable, designed and realized in Italy for Ragioniamo con i piedi.


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.
