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.

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.
