Italy gave us the driving shoe, a soft, flexible shoe for the car and the catwalk. But they don’t have our weather in Italy, and there have been lots of soggy bottoms here. We felt the shoes needed a more substantial sole, and introduced a full pimple sole for our first ranges. Last year we got excited when we found a new sole in Italy, where the rubber goes up around the corner of the heel. It’s better for driving, but great for walking, and boating too.
Our new sole is made in Italy from high grade natural rubber, with better “pimples”. The natural rubber is harder wearing, more flexible, and more giving.
