STORY

PASSION AND TRADITION

Doriano Marcucci is the master shoemaker and the creator of the brand that bears his name. The brand was founded in his workshop in Montegranaro, where for more than 30 years he has been passionately devoted to the art of artisan shoes, entirely made by hand. His story is all about tradition, dedication and humbleness. He spent years learning the shoemaking craft before opening his workshop in 1990 in the heart of this ancient village, cradle of the world’s most prestigious shoemaking tradition.

PROCESS

TRUE CRAFTSMANSHIP

Every creation is unique and made entirely in his workshop, from start to finish. There are 52 separate steps in the construction of each shoe, each of which is a job in itself, done with tools that he has inherited from the old master shoemakers, who used to make them themselves in their workshops. He only uses the finest quality leathers and organic adhesives. The basis of each shoe is the raw material. He works at the wooden last, colours the leather, cuts it, assembles it, and sews it. Everything goes through his hands. He is recognised for the excellence of his “patina” technique, the long process of the leather dyeing. All the colours are original and the “patina” is obtained through a 25 step long process. All shoes are left on the lasts for 2 weeks, to ensure the best possible aesthetics and a long lasting shape.

SHOE CONSTRUCTION

HANDMADE BLAKE RAPID CONSTRUCTION

It is a process that allows for resoling once the outsole is worn or damaged. Blake welting is also superior when seeking a close-cut sole. The body of the outsole can be cut extremely close to the upper. Lastly, because it has fewer layers than a goodyear welt, a blake-welted sole is more flexible.

SHOE CONSTRUCTION

HANDMADE GOODYEAR WELT CONSTRUCTION

 It is generally regarded as the best construction in terms of durability as well as ease in terms of reparation. Being done by hand, does not have a canvas rib supporting the feather. It is highly regarded for several different reasons:

1. for being relatively waterproof, because of the welt/sole connection, not allowing for water to get into the insole;

2. for it’s relative ease in replacing the sole, thus giving you a shoe that can truly last 20-30 years depending on how you treat the upper leather

 

What makes an handmade Goodyear welt construction superior to a machine Goodyear welt construction is that, being entirely stitched by hand, the shoe has a better flexibilty. Consequently, it has a definitely superior fit and comfort since the really first day. 

COLORING TECHNIQUE

THE PATINA

Doriano Marcucci uses a full-grain leather of exceptional quality. By virtue of special mineral and vegetable tanning, this natural hide, acquires a soft, supple hand and unique adhesion that renders feasible every form of creative daring. Every tone, from decorous to daring, ripples with the most delicate shading, offering customers unique colors to choose from. Patiently massaged with essential oils, it absorbs natural pigments and various waxes, through a 25 step long process. He personally perfects the personality of each pair of shoes, helping forge that special “soul” that is typical of his creations.

FEATURES

HANDMADE BAGS

Every single bag is a unique piece, worked by hand and curated in every single detail. The luxurius appeal is the result of an extremely long process that is entirely executed by Doriano Marcucci in his workshop. The perfection of the stitching, together with the use of top-notch materials are his guarantee of durability.
