About

Footwear designed and built with eco-sustainable materials including leathers not treated with dangerous chemical agents such as chromium and other harmful substances normally present in the footwear industry chain. We are launching a pre-sale campaign with a special price for an unisex sneaker model of our collection.

Our Shoes  

Design  

The style of our shoes is both elegant and minimalist. Our brand color is “nude”. All the leather lining (inner part) of our shoes have nude color because it is untreated and gives the feeling of the natural tanning process used.  

Sustainable Materials  

We selects the best natural materials like organic cotton, natural rubber and metal-free eyelets from the best suppliers in Italy and assures the quality through a chemical-physical evaluation process both internal and external through periodic tests with accredited international institutions in order to ensure the highest quality standards.

The Leather  

Our leather is rigorously selected and tanned (processed) in Italy. Thanks to our partnership with the R&D department of a small tannery in Tuscany, our leather is tanned with a process called "White tanning", that is, deprived not only of chromium but of all those chemicals that, according to the most recent studies, can be harmful to the human skin. 

PLEASE NOTE: that our leather is not the so-called "bioleather" or any other leather imitation, that is usually more similar to plastic. We use the best italian genuine leather which is a byproduct of the meat industry.

Moreover, the lining leather of our shoes is totally natural and biodegradable and it is able to absorb the toxins released by feet. 

Sizes

At the end of the campaign we will send you a detailed size guide. It will be very important that you follow our fitting & sizing instructions to get the best fit. If the size you order happens to not be the best fit, you can ship back and we will exchange it for you!

Made in Italy  

All our products are made entirely in Italy by master craftsmen of the Macerata district in Le Marche region, an area known as the "shoe valley". 

Fair Pricing  

Selling via pre-orders, we sell directly to you, without any middleman and retailer’s margin. This is the reason why the price that you find here is reduced up to 40 % from the standard retail price. 

Risks and challenges

We will provide the pre-sale and post-sale assistance needed.
