Verano Vibes

While flip fops have their place in the world, your feet deserve better this season. We produced a small restock in three of our summer's best sellers for you to enjoy the warm weather in style.

Our first shoe is our Piet Penny Loafer, an easy to slip on loafer that can be worn comfortably in the office or en-route to the beach.

Piet sports an easy to match classic rounded toe box and a buttery box calf leather sourced by Tanneries du Puy, one of the finest French leather providers that is owned by Hermes.

The curved saddle runs across the entire vamp from welt to welt delivering a sleek design and the embroidery detailing on the heel counter adds a subtle design statement. The apron is the artisanal cherry on-top, as it is carefully hand-stitched by one of our skilled artisans here in Spain.

The comfortable loafer sports a pitched heel which creates harmonious silhouette from the heel collar to the floor, a quilted insole with cushioning, and a Goodyear-welted sole which means that you can enjoy your years for many years to come.

Lastly, the handmade Orion patina is a beautiful black and blue blend that looks nearly black under low light in the office, but blue when under the sun. The patina will complement work attire during the week and look fanstastic with dark denim and khakis on the weekends.

Summertime here in Barcelona also means peak-wedding-season. Our Wholecut is the most dressy shoe of our collection and unlike other wholecuts, we incorporate a unique side lacing design and our signature asymmetrical pattern.

In shoemaking, the construction method of the Wholecut is challenging since the design requires carefully molding one 2D piece of leather onto a 3D silhouette without the help of multiple seam lines which normally create the curves that make it easy to last.

The unique asymmetric pattern of our Wholecut delivers a clean and seamless center front and center back, with the only seam on the entire shoe tucked away neatly at the inner heel.

The elongated, seamless vamp and four eyelet lacing that cuts diagonally across the outside quarter, creates the perfect canvas for our handmade Espresso patina.

The Espresso patina is a great choice for a formal event with majority of the body in a black and dark brown and eye-catching hints of light brown at the toebox, facings, and heel.

Our final shoe is our James Penny Loafer in our alluring brown and cognac patina.

James is defined by a sharp chiseled toe, elongated vamp, an asymmetric pattern with no center back seam, 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 Piet Penny Loafer, Wholecut Oxford, and James Penny Loafer are available in a small batch online and in our men’s shoe store in Barcelona.

Each Goodyear-welted pair is meticulously hand-finished by our team of artisans in Barcelona before delivery.
