The Artesano hand-stitched sole has remained an icon of quality, style, and technique for the Magnanni family. The delicate art involves sewing of the shoe upper and sole together, avoiding the lining, with double-needle stitching to create a look rarely seen in modern fashion footwear. Our craftsman apprentice for years to earn the title of Artesano and join the small team capable of stitching these meticulously finished shoes.
The Marea Baja Artesano has a symmetrical, fairing curve that rises into the upper, with the arc approaching forty-five degrees .
A Marea Alta Artesano maintains a sweeping curve through the upperand is designated by a more dramatic curvature and higher swell .
The Montaña Artesano sole has a symmetrical stitch design rising into the upperat a near ninety degree angle which peaks at the center of the extension.
A Meseta Artesano connects the extension to the upperwith a defined straight stitch that remains parallel to the sole .
The approach to an Artesano selection begins at design with a pattern that enhances the integrity of the shoe’s construction and echoes the lines of the style. The result is a recognizable, fashion-forward look on a traditional silhouette — visually elevating the Artesano.
