I bumped into an ex colleague from Vivienne Westwood on one of my trips to Linea Pelle( https://www.lineapelle-fair.it/en ), the leather accessories and components fair that takes place twice a year in Milan....  She was an intern when I was at VW and was now head of accessories.  Made me feel old! She dragged me to a tannery I had never been to that did a lot of print on nubuk... I loved a lot of what I saw and walked away with a bunch of swatches... This is what I ended up ordering.... This stripe to me is very reminiscent of the prints that were coming out of Gold Label  when I was there. 
Warm brown nubuck with, a paint like stripe print in a metallic gold/bronze.  The print and leather coloured varied quite dramatically from skin to skin.  I did not mind at as I loved all the variations.  In any one else's production these skins would have been sent back as unusable because of this. This variation makes each pair unique... I am a small label making small batches and often get sent tanned skins that come from different tanning batches... This doesn't bother me most of the time.. This was one of those times... 
Stone veneer covered 10mm platform and 25mm heel. Calf lined at the toe and back counter only. Rubber injection anti slide in a leather sole and top piece.
FIT:
Pretty true to size and giving in the width due to the nature of nubuck. Can accommodate a large calf. Boot can be worn rolled down as well....

Hand Made in Italy
