Description

Friulane shoes (or call them Furlanes) are the historical shoes of Friulian tradition: simple lines combined with refined bordeaux velvet, fresh cotton lining and 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 grey "tropical" woolen trousers with pleats and a blue linen jersey polo shirt. A chat at the bar, the pleasure of reading the newspaper.

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

The velvet confers an ever-changing effect to their burgundy: from any position, your shoes will always look different, but always soft and elegant.

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

Velvet was originally an Eastern fabric, which has become renowned in Europe thanks to the expert hands of Italian craftsmen. It confers elegance to any shoe, giving it a flavour of distant eras. Soft, shiny and with grosgrain fabric finishes, it does not go unnoticed.
