They are the double monk straps that know how to combine elegance and classic contemporary style. With its full-grain leather and leather sole, it's the opaque black shoe to match with a suit as the best man or a guest at a classic wedding.
And its blake-rapid construction makes it very easy to resolve. The technique used to achieve this artwork is known as anticatura', which is the italian word for antique finishing.It is a specialty of italian and french maestro shoemakers. Entrusted to the hands of the antique finisher, the upper part of the shoe becomes a work of art. The anticatura method is a hand dyeing procedure of leather. It takes about 8-10 hours of work per pair to create a completely unique patina with an aged effect. Our smooth calfskin leather comes from the so-called full grain layer, the outermost and most valuable part of leather. It is also the one that undergoes the least processing: any veining is a guarantee of natural quality. This feature ensures that feet breathe more and that shoes last longer. And have you noticed how elegant they are. Made with real leather, our soles respect and pay homage to tradition. They're made from the best bovine leather in the market and gain their distinct color through vegetal tanning. And, they're made to last over time. The most valuable construction is called blake-rapid. It's characterized by a double binding (blake and rapid, precisely): while the first attach upper, lining and insole; the second one secures the insole and outside sole together.
The shoes are therefore easy to resole. Important notice: this product is made-to-order and we made them just for you and it takes time between 2-3 weeks, thanks in advance for your understanding. This item is made of burgundy patina and lining black calf leather, dark red goodyear leather sole plain, sleek looking aesthetic with slight chisel.
