"We have been handcrafting high-quality men's footwear in Italy since 1976."


E' un procedimento antico e porta il nome dell'inventore Charles Goodyear (1832): la lavorazione consiste in due cuciture, la prima unisce il sottopiede alla tomaia e al guardolo, la seconda il guardolo alla suola.
Il sottopiede normalmente viene rinforzato con della stoffa.

La cucitura “Goodyear” è un procedimento molto lento che richiede una grande manualità, proprio per questo è considerata la lavorazione più stimata. In questo sistema, le varie parti non sono perforate e la grandiosità del lavoro consiste proprio nel tratto della cucitura effettuato minuziosamente dall'artigiano. In questo caso la cucitura non è visibile all'interno.

This construction defines a shoe that is durable yet soft and flexible.


The upper is prepared with the outer edges glued and pressed onto a specific insole before being stitched; cotton thread is first passed through a specific boiler, where there is melted pitch, to ensure the total waterproofing of the thread and the holes.
This system has a much simpler variant which consists of turning the edges of the upper outwards and mounting them directly on the sole.

Particularly suitable for summer footwear such as sandals, it gives the shoe lightness and flexibility. It's possible to apply variations that allow for a thicker and winter sole (for example, rubber).


The Blake construction is named after the inventor of the machine that sews both inside and outside. To sew the sole, it is necessary to remove the last and re-thread it for finishing operations. This stitching is visible on the insole.

This type of construction makes the shoe flexible and durable.


The Blake-Rapid construction is a combination of the Goodyear and Blake methods, it is one of the oldest and most prestigious construction techniques, characterized by two stages: the first internal stitching (Blake) joins the upper, insole, lining, and midsole. The second external stitching (Rapid) binds the midsole to an additional layer of leather, which forms the final bottom of the shoe.
Advantages: Blake Rapid construction allows for shoe resoling, it is often used in winter footwear, making the shoe comfortable, waterproof, easy to fit, and highly durable over time.


Not all models are suitable for this type of construction, but for some (such as house slippers, simple summer footwear), it is particularly suitable. The upper is stitched to the insole together with the band that then covers the wedge. For this construction, the upper is not mounted with "clamps" on the last but simply inserted. Therefore, if the model is not perfect, defects cannot be eliminated except with heat.
Advantages: the sacchetto construction guarantees maximum softness, lightness, and comfort.
