I found an interesting shoe in at a flea market trip to Brussels a couple of years ago.  It was ugly but interesting and cheaply made...The basic idea for this shoe was good but the execution of it was bad...I changed it technically (swapped the rigid plastic sole for a soft foldable sole, used a dance shoe construction which gives it a bendable quality, adding memory foam for in eternal comfort, changing a plastic zip for a harder wearing metal zip, removing all stiffener and using harder wearing but softer upper leather  etc...) I used a beautiful double sided lambskin that I had been pondering what to do with for quite some time.... There was only enough for 5 pairs .. I will go back to this tannery and find a similar performing leather. Unfortunately it will not be exactly the same as this leather but equally beautiful.... This skin is thick but fluffy, the suede side has been printed with indigo giving it a beautiful mottled effect.  The leather side of the skin is a pale pink/flesh colour. This style is called the Winter Lafayette because it comes higher up on the foot than the Lafayette and is built on the same last.  Although it covers more of the foot it is more lightweight and I would almost say a more summery style then the Lafayette... If the Lafayette is a thick cotton t-shirt the Winter Lafayette is a sheer jersey roll neck....

FIT:
 True to size with good length
THIS STYLE WILL BE DELIVERED IN SEPTEMBER.

Hand Made in Italy
