This model is the undisputed king of the autumn-winter season: comfortable, versatile, light, soft, it wraps the foot like a comfortable slipper but finishes the outfit in an elegant way. The suede and shaded effect means that Parma goes well with jeans and a sweater, perhaps tone on tone
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. Finally, the leather is worked with special brushes and vegetable oils to give it the characteristic shaded effect.
Extra Light rubber tank 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. The shape of the tank sole ensures optimal grip on any terrain.
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.
