These are the elements that, even in the presence of unending stylistic change, have transformed this craft into an art form. Shapes, structures, processes, techniques that arise not only from the experience and an innate aptitude at elegance, but a true culture of the shoe that began with the male shoe cobbler connoisseur, has been extended to women, children and accessories.
Over time, Santoni has perfected its own hand-colouring technique of the shoe, known as "patina", which is a distinctive feature of the brand and a sign of its uniqueness.
Their master craftsmen employ original tint recipes to apply up to 15 different colours to the leather, in a process that may require many hours of labour. The first colour is applied by hand to the leather and left to be absorbed.

This slow, exacting process guarantees that every pair of shoes will have a unique, irreproducible patina.
For forty years they have created unique products with dedication to excellence. They create and refine traditional techniques to meet your expectations with creativity, innovation and continuous research.
