Taormina is a suede moccasin made using bag manufacturing, for a flexible, comfortable shoe, also suitable for long walks. The uniqueness of Taormina is given by the final touch of the golden stud, a true manifesto of style.
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.
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.
More than 200 steps are needed to complete the "bag" process: a lining is created, then sewn around the last, worked and joined to the upper. We then move on to the "ironing" which is carried out on a form heated and beaten by hand by a master craftsman. A padded and breathable material is inserted between the lining and the sole. Finally, the lining and footbed are sewn to the upper creating a single body to improve comfort.
