Shoes signed De Santis involve nearly 200 phases of workmanship, based on the underlying model.
The expertly carved leather is shaped: stretched along the mould, fixed to the sole, it is now ready for stitching.
The craftsman applies venerable single, double or triple stitiching techniques according to the model’s requirements.
Infinite chromatic palettes, rigourously attained by hand... while achieving that very specific effect: glossy, vintaged, dappled or brushstroked...
Name, numbering, dates... are just some of the elements that can be weaved into the shoe, be it on the sole, the heel... wherever your personality dictates.
