how it is made.
Skillfully handcrafted in Montegranaro, Italy, the COLE sneaker presents a construction that can only be found in high-luxury brands, with the upper made with the finest full-grain calfskin, stitched to a high-quality rubber sole, for extra durability, flexibility and comfort.
The dimensional, tonal finish is the result of a meticulous artisanal process, which starts from hand buffering of natural crust leather and sees additional layers of dye gradually applied by hand once the shoe is stitched together.
To create a distressed, urban look, this style also undergoes an exclusive antiquing process called stone washing, consisting of washing the shoe in open washing machines filled with water and pumice stones.
The beautiful patina is then emphasised through careful waxing and brushing.
Everything is in the detail, and some things can be felt but not seen – the cotton thread, cushion footbed, arch support, calfskin lining, leather reinforcements – to ensure excellent comfort and durability.
