Since the launch, the designs have garnered many luxury sneaker fans, making the brand a cult-favorite among the fashion crowd around the world. There is no other option when it comes to high quality sneakers, which all are made in Italy using the finest leather, highest-quality canvas and materials. The shoes are all hand stitched to the sole and the quality gets even better over the years, which is also the reason why they have been awarded more than once for 'Best Sneakers' by GQ magazine.
