Matera is a well-structured lace-up boot, like the caves of the Lucanian city, but which hugs the foot softly. The use of vegetable tanned buffalo leather gives this model a strong character and a unique colour. The hammered leather with the orange peel effect makes it recognizable and non-trivial. The difference with the Bergamo model is that in this case the leather is not smooth.
Textured full grain buffalo leather
The hammered buffalo leather is obtained through the drumming process, carried out in order to enhance the beauty of the Pieno Fiore leather. Thanks to the drumming, the leather acquires a grain of variable intensity which preserves the natural irregularities of the raw material, without losing its softness to the touch.
Extra light rubber sole
The Extra Light rubber soles are light and comfortable. The closed cell structure gives resistance to the shoe, protecting it from liquids, bacteria and external agents. The formulation of the sole promotes a "shock-absorber" effect which helps to improve foot support.
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.
