HANDMADE ITALIAN SHOES
At MioTinto we take great pride in specializing in affordable made-to-order italian shoes. If you’re looking for shoes in a particular color, don’t settle for almost perfect, when you can create the perfect match between your shoes and outfit. Finish off your distinctive personality with a pair of shoes that not only complement but elevate your character. It is this finesse that defines the spirit of a true gentleman.
MioTinto Italian Craftsmanship
MioTinto shoes are entirely handmade in one of the few remaining artisanal workshops in Italy. All MioTinto shoes are Blake-Stiched, which means that the outer sole is directly stitched to the insole for maximum flexibility and comfort. For the stitching we use pitch-dipped wire, which ensures that the thread does not absorb moisture, keeping your feet dry. Only using the finest materials: the upper and the lining are made out of a soft vitello, the full-leather outsole is fitted with a rubber top piece on the front and heel for extra durability and anti-slip, and the soft vitello insole is fitted with cushioning for extra comfort. MioTinto is synonymous with 100% Italian craftsmanship, made by and for those who want pure perfection.
Guided by one of our made-to-order shoe specialists, you determine what model and size fit your feet best. These shoes will form the canvas for our Master-Finisher. But only after you decide on the patina of you choice, again carefully guided by one of our made-to-order specialists. Once you made your choice our Master-Finisher will personally hand-finish your shoes and matching belt in the desired color. The finishing touch will be your initials on the inside of each pair, and a certificate of authenticity with the finish-number, date, and signature of the master-finisher that worked on your finish.
Perfectly Matching Belt
The formal Italian belt – the belt you wear with your suit – should be completely subordinated to your suit, the belt must support your suit in a very discreet manner, and it should never steal the show. A formal belt has a width of 2.5 to 3.5 centimeters, and is made of the finest leather.
When you wear a suit it is all about the big picture. For this reason a striking belt too often is an unwelcome distraction. Rule of thumb is that a formal belt comes in the exact same color as your shoes, and comes with a very subtle buckle. When your shoes that are striking, it may be a good choice to slightly tone down the color of your belt, and to match it a bit more to your suit, shirt or even the buttons of your suit. You can also go a shade darker or possibly a touch lighter.
Upon ordering your shoes and belt will be created out of the same piece of leather, and will be finished next to each other. This ensures a perfect match between your shoes and your belt.
MioTinto ends an era of similarity in shoes. Your beloved italian shoes will now be as unique as your personality. With a choice of 6 models, 50 colors and 16 different last sizes, you can choose from 4.416 combinations. Every single pair will be completely made-to-order, finished off with your initials or wedding date inside the shoes. If your exact color is not available within our color guide, our Master-Finisher will be happy to create a new color exactly as you desire. This color can completely match -for example- your (wedding) suit, shirt, tie or even your buttons.
