Things never seen
Right from the beginning Silvano Lattanzi has always manufactured handmade “footwear.”

“Custom made” though does not just mean that the Client chooses the leather, shapes and details. More than anything else, it means that the shoes will be created around his feet, bearing in mind the height of the person, their weight, their life-style and, obviously, the conformation of the foot itself. It is a lengthy and meticulous task, which must take into account the foot’s proportions and also any eventual sensitive area. But even more importantly: it must adapt those same proportions to the shape chosen by the Client.

The treasure of buried shoes

The buried shoes

The seasoning of the shoes in the pits is an amazing aging process of the lather which gain nuances and shades so peculiar and unique that cannot be reproduced.
In 2005, this unique idea of burying 50 pairs of shoes in pits was inspired by an ancient Roman habit which is still surprisingly carried on in some parts of Italy.
The method of the “infossamento” (burying in the pits) was used since ancient Rome in order to preserve grains, cheese and food during the winter.
When aging food, especially cheese, acquires a unique flavor with a rich peculiar fragrance.
