The Great Escape

With warm weather ahead, we created three essential pieces to get you covered for your special getaway.

The first is for a tasteful adventure in the great outdoors or along the big-city streets.

Our Borcego Boot features a soft squared chiseled toe, rugged 6 D-ring and 1 hook eyelets for quick and easy lacing, red mountain boot laces, dual tongue closures to keep out debris, and a heel stabilizer in veg tan leather which will naturally patina and darken over time.

The merino fur heel pad and lightweight and durable Vibram Commando Sole will ensure that your feet are comfortable all-day-long. 

The uniquely refined silhouette give the mountain boot a polished look and the antique brown handmade patina adds a touch of sophistication. The boots can easily be paired up with denims, corduroys, and khakis, or be the centerpiece of a buttoned up outfit.

Our second shoe will guarantee that you stand out tastefully at the next wedding.

Our Wholecut Oxford is our unique dress shoe made from one piece of leather and incorporates our signature asymmetric pattern with no center-back seam.

The leather upper is carefully lasted around the elongated vamp and chiseled toe with four eyelet lacing that cuts diagonally across the outside quarter. This unique design creates a clean and seamless center front and center back, and the only seam on the entire shoe is tucked away neatly at the inner heel.

We selected our signature Marron Mediterráneo patina for this pair, a custom blend of rich brown and burgundy that can easily be dressed up or down.

Our final shoe is for a relaxed holiday away in-style.

Effortlessly slip on a pair of our James Penny Loafers in a stunning brown and cognac patina.

James is defined by a sharp chiseled toe, our signature asymmetric pattern with no center back seam, an elongated vamp, and our hand painted leather sole.

The sawtooth details of gimping accent the apron, penny keeper, tongue, and the counter and our padded and the embroidered insole is a unique design detail that's both beautiful and adds additional comfort.

The handmade patina is a colorful combination that can easily be worn with the casual comforts of summer attire. The rich brown and cognac patina will look handsome with blues and greys of dress attire and will make a statement with dark denim, khakis and white linen.

The Borcego Boot, Wholecut Oxford and James Penny Loafer are now available online and in-store.

Each Goodyear-welted pair is meticulously hand finished by our artisan team in Barcelona, Spain before delivery. This process includes the use of glass, sandpaper, inks, creams, waxes, fire and multiple iron tools to achieve a bespoke quality finishing that the Norman Vilalta brand has become known for.
