Blake-Rapid

In the BLAKE-RAPID method, the process is composed of two steps. In the initial one, a BLAKE stitching is realized on the first leather sole. In the following step a RAPID stitching is realized. It is a stitching that connects the first and the second sole that could be of leather or of rubber. The heel is inserted by hand using nails and the sole is always finished off and colored by hand. This exclusively handmade process is realized with a double stitching giving the sole greater elasticity and comfort.
