how it is made.

Skillfully handcrafted in Montegranaro, Italy, the PUTNEY presents a construction which can only be found in high-luxury brands, with the upper made with the finest full grain calfskin stitched (not cheaply cemented) to a natural latex rubber sole, for extra durability, flexibility and comfort.

To produce these natural latex rubber outsoles, pure virgin hevea milk is refined to create a unique sole full of tiny air bubbles offering exceptional levels of comfort and shock absorption.

The dimensional, tonal finish is the result of a meticulous artisanal process, which starts from the dip dyeing of natural crust leather and sees additional layers of dye and ageing creams gradually applied by hand once the sneaker is stitched together. The shades of uneven intensity are then emphasised through careful waxing and brushing.

To create a distressed, urban look, this style also undergoes an exclusive antiquing process called stone washing, consisting of washing the sneaker in open washing machines filled with water and pumice stones.

shoe care.

These PUTNEY sneakers are dip-dyed and stonewashed and treated for a worn-in, distressed look, so don’t need to be kept pristine. They are meant to be lived in and become part of your story. The more worn-in, the cooler they become; displaying a lifetime of memories and stories.

That said, regularly caring for your shoes will nourish them, increasing their softness, water resistance and comfort. And, it goes without saying, the more you care for your shoes, the longer they will last.

What a delightful experience!

It is already great to be able to purchase handmade shoes online but the customer service is really what makes the experience stand out. They help through every stage of the process. And then deliver a shoe of outstanding quality. This was the first pair of many.

A worthwhile investment

I've had these for a few months and I must say easy maintenance and enduring style make these Italian leather sneakers a smart investment for your Summer days.
The leather is rich, supple, and beautifully distressed; the outsoles feel luxurious and exudes quality.
Great light sneaker.

Must Try!

I'm amazed by the flexibility of these latex sneakers. They move with my feet effortlessly, and they fit me perfectly. I highly recommend!

Beautiful, but run small

First, these shoes are gorgeous and appear to be very well constructed, with great attention to detail. The leather is soft and feels already broken in. I bought a pair of US size 13 (EU 46) on a 50% off "last pairs" discount, and as such I cannot return them. The description says the shoes run long but narrow, so I took the plunge. Based on how these fit (on me at least), they DO NOT run long. They are tight on me to the point of being painful. I am going to try a shoe stretcher with the hope of breaking them in a bit, because I really like them. If it were not for this, I am certain they would be extraordinarily comfortable. This is not to say anything negative about the maker of the shoe or its quality, as I knew full well the risk I was taking; it's more a "buyer beware" statement for others who might be considering these.
