Old-World Italian Shoemaking
At Solari, the art of shoemaking is not just a process, but a passion. Every pair of men's shoes is carefully handmade in Monsummano Terme, Italy, Tuscany by shoemakers with over 50 years of experience.
The brand's shoemakers are a family business supported by 6-7 extra employees who share their passion for traditional Italian craftsmanship. From the first step of prototyping with a model maker to the final touch of cleaning and creaming, Solari's shoes are crafted with precision and care.
With each cut and stitch, the shoemakers use their expertise to reinforce the shoes and ensure their durability. At Solari, the craft of shoemaking is a true labor of love, and each pair of shoes is a testament to the brand's commitment to quality, sustainability, and tradition.
Corn Leather Uppers
Solari's uppers are made with corn leather, a bio-based material that is both eco-friendly and durable. The corn used for making the base material is a non-food grade crop, ensuring that Solari is not diverting resources from human or animal food chains. The uppers have been carefully selected and tested to meet Solari's exacting standards for quality and sustainability.
Bamboo Leather Linings
Solari's linings are made with bamboo leather, a sustainable and breathable material that is both eco-friendly and luxurious. Bamboo leather is a versatile and durable material that is perfect for lining Solari's high-end shoes. The brand is committed to using materials that are both sustainable, vegan and of the highest quality.
