how it is made.
Handcrafted in Italy from vegetable-tanned calf leather, this style is Blake stitched, a superior construction method that yields numerous benefits, including maximum sole flexibility for exceptional comfort and fashionable aesthetics.
The dimensional, tonal finish is the result of a meticulous artisanal process, which starts from the dip dyeing of natural leather and sees additional layers of dye gradually applied by hand once the shoe 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 shoe in open washing machines filled with water and pumice stones.

All BERKELEY shoes and boots are hand-dyed, stonewashed and treated for a worn-in, distressed look, so they 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.
