SPECIAL EDITION Cognac Dune Wholecut


Goodyear welted pair of wholecut shoes, made of high-grade crust calf leather.

The leather is hand-painted and finished by our artisans with the cognac dune patina pattern.

The pair features a sturdy and waterproof Dainite rubber sole, brown inner lining, and brown shoelaces.

In terms of construction, these shoes are made using the Savile shoe last: a soft chisel toe and a long elegant vamp.

Original Goodyear welted using traditional techniques, they feature our classic leather sole. And it’s no coincidence that we chose the leather sole for this particular shoe: having the slimmest profile it’s often considered the dressiest of all them. Besides that, it’s hardwearing, flexible, practical, long-lasting, and beautiful.
What to say about the last? Used on some of our most refined hand-finished shoes, the “Savile” shoe-last is the result of many rounds of refinement to create the perfect men’s formal last. Featuring a soft chisel toe and a long elegant vamp, this is a great go-to last for any classic suit shoe.

Originally made famous by Olga Berluti in the 1980’s, the technique used to achieve this artwork is known as ‘Anticatura’, which is the Italian word for antique finishing. It is a specialty of Italian and French maestro shoemakers. Entrusted to the hands of the antique finisher, the upper part of the shoe becomes a work of art. The Anticatura method is a hand dyeing procedure of leather. It takes about 8-10 hours of work per pair to create a completely unique patina with an aged effect.  Learn More about our Hand Patina Here.
