How We Make Them

Our Shoes Are All Handmade

Fratelli Borgioli shoes are well-known for their sole construction. We only use handcrafted leather soles. Every single shoe is trimmed by hand.

On some shoes, in addition to the classic processes described up to now, we use some additional special techniques.

BLAKE CONSTRUCTION

In this construction the outer sole is directly stitched to the insole. This allows more flexibility and lighter weight of the shoe.

BLAKE RAPID CONSTRUCTION

Blake construction is largerly used in winter collections. It allows for an indestructible shoe with a soft and comfortable fit.

GOODYEAR WELT CONSTRUCTION

This is the sturdiest, most laborious method of shoe construction that ensures the premium quality of the shoe.

NORWEGIAN CONSTRUCTION

This complex, fascinating method, ideal for customers who want solid, sturdy footwear, makes the shoe highly waterproof.

FLEX CONSTRUCTION

Flex construction calls for an insole made of fine, thin leather rather than thicker shoe leather, giving the footwear extraordinary flexibility and comfort.

DRIVING SHOES

This construction combines the convenience and look of a driving shoe with the comfort of a walking and city shoe.

MEMOR FLEX

MemorFlex is a new Borgioli proposal that gives the shoe even more flexibility and comfort.
