IS by Individual Sentiments 

Kangaroo Leather Derbies 

That toe construction is beyond words. Individual Sentiments has really struck a chord with me here. Through retaining their classic shape and introducing a few more avant-garde elements to the shoe they have really created something unlike anything else. I need these for the summer. Yes, need.

Devoa Cow Leather Sandals - Guidi Leather

I don’t think I’d wear these personally but I love how they look like a devoa shoe that simply had sections removed. Not to mention the finer details like the strap for the laces. Finally the cherry on top; these are made with Guidi cow leather.

IN 1896 GUIDO GUIDI, GIOVANNI ROSELLINI AND GINO ULIVO ESTABILISHED “CONCERIA GUIDI E ROSELLINI” AT PESCIA IN TUSCANY. HERE THE ART OF LEATHER TANNING CAN BE TRACED TO THE MIDDLE AGE, WHEN A GUILD OF TANNERS AND SHOEMAKERS EXISTED SINCE XIV CENTURY. PASSION FOR LEATHER AND RESPECT FOR ITS TRADITION ARE THE MEANINGS OF GUIDI’S SHOE COLLECTION PROJECT. HE REFUSES THE MASS PRODUCTION LOGIC BEING FOCUSED ON HIS OWN INDEPENDENT RESEARCH BEYOND ALL THE TENDENCIES. THE SHOES ARE FOR ALL THOSE WHO WISH FOR SOMETHING UNIQUE WITH A TWIST OF TRADITION. SHOES THAT ONLY A CRAFTSMAN WOULD BE ABLE TO MAKE, COMING IN SOFT, CANDID HIDES OR IN A DISTRESSED, STRONG SMELLING, THICKEND LEATHER. GUIDI IS SYNONYMOUS WITH THE TIE EXISTING BETWEEN THE OBJECT AND ITS POSSESSOR.
