These Goodyear-welted wingtips come from Nico Nerini, a family-run shoemaker that’s been in business for 45 years. Each pair is handcrafted in India using Italian full-grain leather or suede. For a soft hand and an intensely rich color, the uppers have been hand burnished with wax and a rotating fabric wheel: a process that adds character and depth of color to the burnished area. Plus, these shoes feature XL Extralight Commando lug soles, a new standard in the footwear industry. Made of an innovative plastic foam, XL Extralight soles are lighter, more durable, and more shock-absorbing than traditional Commando soles. They’re also much better equipped than leather soles to handle rainy or snowy sidewalks, and the storm welt provides additional waterproofing around the seams.
Note: At checkout, choose black leather, tan leather, or brown suede. Full and half sizes are available from men's US 7 to 11.5, as are sizes 12 and 13.
