Venezia is a classic derby shoe in full grain calfskin. Among the derbies, it is the most suitable for formal occasions: its linear, clean, captivating elegance makes it a true shoe classic. Venezia is made with selected raw materials coming from ancient Tuscan tanneries. The manufacturing process is the traditional one of the Marche artisans, master shoemakers who hold the Made in Italy label
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.
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.
