The moccasin is a shoe that is simply essential in the contemporary men's wardrobe. Our version, Messina, is a classic and elegant model in suede calfskin, which recalls the immortal beauty of the city on the Sicilian Strait. Perfect for summer, it is also good in winter, in fact our brushed leather is water-repellent and does not fear water.
By "suede leather" (also called suede) we do not mean chamois leather, but rather a leather obtained through a specific manufacturing process: the most superficial part of the leather is removed and the underlying layer is tanned, dyed and buffed to give that effect reminiscent of the softness of velvet.

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.
