Because you have requested it, it is now here!! Our popular penny loafer made using our luxurious & super rare ruby Shell Cordovan! This leather is very limited & exclusively sourced from a family operated Tuscan Tannery!
Our first impression when we started working with it, is that weve found this Shells to be softer & more flexible (pretty similar to the US-made one in terms of flexibility & tanning) than the Japanese one were also using. While, on the other hand, we found the Japanese Shell finish more natural & very transparent showing the different & beautiful hues of the Shell, while the Italian version is more regular in tone, but when sun-lightened up shows all its beauty. Different ways to produce the same incredible material & both great on its own way!
Now for the production of our Shell cordovan shoes & boots, we even use French calf for the lining & 100% leather heel counters! To get an even better, more comfortable & long lasting shoe.
Our shoes & boots are Goodyear Welted following traditional techniques by skillful artisans. This loafers are made to last and to just get better looking & more confortable over the time. As all our shoes, this loafer is fully leather lined & made using full grain vegetable tanned leather insoles.
Goodyear welted on our classic loafer RON last , that is perfectly balanced for loafers. Finished with a beautiful chestnut tanned leather JR sole! As all our leather soled shoes featuring a convenient close channel sole stitch.
