MioTinto shoes are entirely handmade in one of the few remaining artisanal workshops in Italy. And thanks to our master-finishers your shoes can now be as personal and unique as your wishes. After you select a model, you can choose from one of our 40 color variations. Next our master-finisher will personally hand-finish your shoes, and if you wish he will add your initials on the inside of the shoes. Every pair completely made-to-order to fit your personal style. If the exact color you are looking for is not available within our color selection, our Master-Finisher will be happy to create a bespoke color especially for you. This color can completely match -for example- your wedding suit, tie, buttons, or shirt.

Miotinto shoes are made out of the finest materials. For the upper and lining we use a beautiful soft Vitello. The full leather outsole features a layer of rubber on the front and on the heel to protect it against wear, and to make it more slip proof. The soft vitello insole contains light cushioning which adds to the comfort of the shoes.

All MioTinto shoes have a Blake construction. The Blake Stich is a very popular construction mostly used for high-end Italian shoes. A single row of stitching attaches the insole to the upper and the outsole. Tarred wire ensures that the wire does not absorb moisture, keeping your feet nice and dry. As an added benefit shoes with a Blake construction tend to be more flexible than a Goodyear welted shoes. And contrary to popular belief Blake shoes can be re-soled.

In short, MioTinto shoes are 100% Italian craftsmanship, made by and for lovers of pure perfection. In addition to shoes MioTinto also offers a fully matching belt that will be hand-finished together with your shoes to create a perfect match. The 35-millimeter belt will be made to the exact length you whish it to be. And to give your shoes the best possible treatment we also developed a very gentle and nurturing hand-finish cream. This makes maintaining your hand-finished shoes extremely easy.


Como Derby

The Como is our most popular style. The Derby is characterized by quarters with shoelace eyelets that are sewn on top of the vamp. The Derby construction method is also known as open lacing. The Derby became a popular for sporting and hunting in the 1850’s. But by the turn of the 20th century, the Derby became more elegant and quickly gained popularity as stylish dressed shoe. Still the derby is a bit more casual than the oxford but both the oxford and the derby are considered to be formal wear.

Milano Boot

The Chukka boot was first brought to the West from India by the British Raj, and it is named after the playing period in polo. The Boot and the ankle boot have become popular due to their versatility and practicality. Considering that pants almost completely covers the quarters, Miotinto boots can be matched with clothing outfits the same way as regular shoes, but are generally not worn for formal occasions.

Veneto Double Monk-Strap

The monk-strap is named after the footwear worn by the Italian monks in the 15th century. The monk-strap shoe found popularity with monks because it was more protective than the sandals they normally wore. They were hard wearing and long lasting, making them the perfect work shoe. Monk straps are very versatile: They are very elegant when underneath a suit, but can also be worn more casually.

ROMA OXFORD

Dressed for the occasion. An Oxford shoe is characterized by shoelace eyelets that are attached under the vamp, also refered to as ‘closed lacing’. This in contrast with a Derby, which has the eyelets attached to the top of the vamp. Originally, Oxfords were plain, formal shoes, but they evolved into a range of styles suitable for formal, uniform, or casual wear. Oxfords first appeared in Scotland and Ireland, where they are occasionally called Balmorals after the Balmoral Castle. However, the shoes were later named Oxfords after the famous Oxford University.
