Description

Friulane shoes (or call them Furlanes) are the historical shoes of Friulian tradition: simple lines combined with suede, unlined and with a rubber sole. They were originally homemade by women from villages in the mountains, then they found new life among the Venetian canals: the gondoliers needed a comfortable, stable and delicate shoe on the wood. The hand stitching has remained just as it once was: hands make each shoe a unique piece with their irregular motion. Today these shoes are a symbol of elegance: wear them with burgundy trousers with pleats and a sugar-paper coloured shirt, all in pure linen. A chat in the park.

Made in Gonars (Italy)

Construction

The upper is sewn by hand, with a chain stitch, directly to the sole just like in the past: to this day there are no machines that can take a Friulian craftsman's place. The hand stitch makes the initial fit rather enveloping, but in a short time it adapts to the foot. The rubber sole and midsole are instead machine-sewn.

Color

Unrefined leather goes through the traditional process called “tanning”. And is treated so to prevent it from decomposition or loss in flexibility. Afterwards, the leather is put in a rotating wood barrel with water and blue coloring solution for dyeing. Water is then warmed up to 60° C to help the color bind to the leather for a lasting finish.

Sole

The rubber sole, with typical visible stitching, ensures a good grip. We wanted to recreate the texture of a bicycle tire, because originally the soles of the Friulane were made with old tires (today's are quite different from yesteryear's). The midsole is made of wool felt and latex to give you the comfort you want.

Leather

To make suede leather you use the underside of the calf leather. There are two types: “overturned”, obtained by turning the full grain leather the other way around; and “split leather”, where it’s the very last layer to be chosen. Our suede leathers are all waterproof.
