Pay homage to the best of Italian style with the finest leather, immaculate tailoring, and other fashion-forward accents
by Archana Aithal Rose
To understand the appeal of Ugo Vasare shoes, one needs to be acquainted with its meticulous, construction process. Crafted from premium leather sourced from Italy, France, and Spain, each pair is fitted with an extra layer of hide between the sole and upper for added structural integrity. Resulting cavities are then filled with porous material, making every pair unique and shape naturally over time to its wearer. From construction to stitching to polishing, processes are completed entirely by hand, preserving this ancient art and exploring a neutral ground where past meets future.
