Bellagio is a derby shoe: a natural evolution of the Oxford, the derby stands out for the detail of the open lacing which makes the sock more visible, allows more mobility to the foot and is generally suitable for less formal contexts. In Bellagio the derby is made richer and more elegant by the full brogue workmanship with the iconic swallowtail decorations.
Brushed Full Grain Leather
Full grain leather is one of the most valuable materials, because it constitutes the superficial layer of the animal's epidermis and has not undergone particular processes that have altered its natural appearance. Brushing makes it smooth and uniformly shiny, giving greater elegance to the skin.
Thick leather with non-slip rubber clip
Leather is a resistant, hygienic, durable and reusable material. Its characteristics remain unchanged for a long time and the passing of time helps to make it more aesthetically beautiful. Anti-slip rubber clips are injected into the leather of the sole which allow the breathability properties of the leather to be maintained without fearing the rain: this is how the iconic Ciccone sole was born.
Blake Rapid processing
The Blake Rapid process was invented by Lyman Reed Blake in 1858 and immediately achieved great success, especially in Italy where it is still among the most used processes today. Its genius lies in the double "Blake" stitching that joins the upper, insole, lining and midsole, while the "Rapid" puts the midsole and sole together, increasing the shoe's resistance and waterproofness.
