Hand crafted in Italy by artisans

the secret sauce

The "sacchetto" working method is a technique which permits the manufacturing of particularly comfortable shoes. This working process according to the rules of the most authentic Italian shoemaking tradition involves up to two hundred steps requiring outstanding skillfulness, experience and competence.

During the sewing stage, the full grain nappa lining is attached like a "sac" along its edge permitting to build a shoe without the rigid components used in most shoes.

The shoe becomes lighter and allows the foot to move naturally. A breathable cushioned material is inserted between the sole and the lining to provide long lasting shock absorption all along the foot.

The flexible construction allows the application of heels requiring the incorporation of the insole and the heel. This "bridge" between the heel and the ball of the foot is built under the insole cushioned with a layer of memory foam that diminishes the pressure on the plantar arch.
