Originally a work shoe, during the 1950’s the loafer found space in the casual wardrobe, perfect for school uniform and a ‘Preppy’ style.
They became famous in Italy in the 1970’s with their characteristic brushed leather, hand sewn borders in penny or tasselled versions.
Elegant but never too serious, they have remained true to themselves, as only a classic can.
Today, they are back on the streets with the same character and design that distinguishes them, utilising new shapes and colours whilst maintaining their indispensable comfort.
Entirely ‘Made in Italy’, they are an artisan product, going through many handcrafted stages, such as their patiently hand stitched seams and knotting.
The upper is hand painted once the shoe is finished, every ‘X’ is unique with it’s own small differences when compared to all the others.
The sole is leather with the exclusive ‘X’ injected in rubber for a better grip and sewn with the exclusive Blake stitch.
More than a classic, we think of them as something that never ages. Elegant and fun, the opportunities to wear them are lifelong!
