"IDEAL" Construction Technique
The "Ideal" construction technique is a craft-based construction process that guarantees comfort, hard-wearing resistance and flexibility for footwear thanks to a totally traditional production process. The leather upper, prepared with the outer edges bonded and pressed onto a dedicated midsole, is stitched vertically. The yarn employed, which used to be cotton, and then replaced by nylon or synthetic material, is dipped in a purpose-designed boiler full of melted tar to ensure the yarn and holes are totally waterproof. The result is a top quality footwear whose distinguishing features are prestige and durability.
Experience the comfort of the footbeds made with OrthoLite® PU foam: • Long-term cushioning: OrthoLite® foam compresses less than 5% of its thickness over the lifetime of the footbed, so the cushioning, fit, comfort and performance never change. • High level breathability: the open-cells of the OrthoLite® foam, allows air to circulate in and around the footbed, moving the moisture away and keeping the foot cooler and drier.
