Silvano Lattanzi

    Above all else, Italian bespoke footwear maker Silvano Lattanzi is known for his incredible imagination and inability to recognize the words “it can’t be done” when conceiving a pair of shoes. Such progressive thinking has allowed the Sant’Elpidio a Mare, Italy-based shoemaker to create some of the footwear industry’s most heralded designs, including a new collection of hand-painted loafers and lace-ups as well as last season’s “entombed shoes,” in which his favorite designs were buried to achieve a rough-hewn patina no factory finishing process can duplicate. Lattanzi weaves his newest creations out of a combination of leather and toquila straw, the same material used to fashion the finest Montecristi hats. For the bespoke purist, Lattanzi creates genuine cordovan lace-ups and calf- and exotic-skin dress brogues entirely by hand. At the same time he now offers a collection of handmade sport looks, including perforated leather golf shoes that he gladly adorns with your initials as well as boat sneakers that can be customized with your yacht's logo.
