Before making its way on to the foot of a customer, the Artioli shoe passes over a long period through the hands of the professional artisans that craft them. They infuse the same values into the shoes as the lines that time has carved on their hands. Embodied in the culture of shoemaking, the profession of quality, and the enduring reach for perfection.
The essence of a shoe and any garment is its shape. It is from this exact point that the Artioli shoe has its birth. The shoemaker rises to greatness only by infusing into the shoe the shape that will incorporate their knowledge of the foot, comfort, fashion trends, and the proper distinction that each one of their shoes possesses. These considerations occurs when sculpting the original last out of wood and after the Artioli’s have prepared the lasts, they design the lines of the future shoe, envisioning the cuttings, stitching, and the minute details that create the final product.
