Our sneakers are not just any sneakers.

All of our sneakers are hand sewn and welted in a small family owned factory in Fiesso d’Artico

, located just outside of Venice – famous for manufacturing the most luxurious and comfortable sneakers in the world.

The most exclusive sneakers that you can find on the market are made in the little factory, such as: Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Balenciaga, Dior, YSL and – Difficult by P.

This makes our sneakers different from sneakers that are mass produced from different synthetic materials in Asia: it is a shoe that is the real deal, made with love for the craft, by real shoemakers.

It is the same as with any well made shoe, it will be more comfortable and the shoes will hold up much better over time if they are made with care, rather than if they were glued together and made from synthetic materials. 

All of our sneakers are made from natural authentic Italian calf leather.

The sole of the shoe (made from natural rubber), the shoelaces, the shoebox – everything is made in Italy, within a radius of 2 km from the shoe factory.

The shoes are hand sewn around the entire sole (welted) and all of the leather parts are also sewn by hand… Everything is made by local Italian contributors with many years of experience in a safe environment. 

We are very proud to have the opportunity to manufacture our shoes in Riviera del Brenta, together with some of the world’s most influential in the industry, and we know that anyone who wears our sneakers will notice the difference.
