Founded in 2012 by Martiniano Lopez Crozet, Martiniano shoes are handmade in Buenos Aires, Argentina and are well known for their traditional craftsmanship and comfort. With a focus on simplicity, austerity and understated elegance, Martiniano wants their customers to embrace the slight quirks and anomalies arising from the natural qualities of the material and craftsmanship, as they are essential to the uniqueness of their shoes.
All Martiniano shoes are made with high quality kid leather dyed with anilines. Aniline dyed leathers are the most attractive and natural leathers and are prized for their soft and natural feel. The surface is not covered with a topcoat of paint or insoluble pigment so the resulting product retains the hide's natural surface and grain, including visible pores.
