The Story: Designed on the Venice last, this was originally a one-piece construction.
Originally designed as a one piece fold over boot the design has evolved to the classic silhouette we now know as the Venice Boot. A simple and elegant boot to about 14cm in height (excluding the heel).
Style: Side lace ankle boot
Upper: Tan Analine Italian bovine or yearling leather, English Calf lining
Sole: 3.5mm Italian oak tanned, raw, Blake stitched leather sole. Stacked leather heel, tapered 45mm high, Vibram top piece.
Prices will vary depending on leather chosen and sole. Kangaroo leather has more texture and markings, the skin is strong, but it’s also very fine in thickness. The veg-tan roo also is a dry leather and thus high maintenance in that it needs regular conditioning to avoid it drying out. Yearling has similar body to bovine leather, but has a smoother grain and a more polished finish. It is also more readily dyed. Yearling and bovine are our preferred choices for regular wear. Baby calf leather is like the cashmere of leather and the choice for high gloss potential, formal occasions and infrequent wear. Bovine is a great choice for regular wear.
