A modern Oxford in pleated satin and hand frayed panels
Fully lined in soft goatskin
Sole in leather and commando style rubber
DV079 is a hand made shoe with a classic wingtip design base. The upper is all made from pleated satin.
The original classic design is disrupted by panels of carefully hand shredded satin that have been meticulously stitched onto the upper. These panels have a specific position on the shoe where they follow an almost liquid-like, organic pattern.
The sole was engineered with a pronounced angle at the front base, which we call toe spring. A high toe spring, specially in thicker soles, has a major benefit: it greatly helps walking as there is no need to bend the foot as much because the shape of the sole does that for you. As a result you will feel less tired and you will enjoy a more relaxed walk.
DV079 in entirely lined in soft goatskin
Vanassibaras will never smell unpleasant. Our shoes are mounted on a breathable raw leather insole which naturally absorbs excessive sweat from the feet. That’s an old technique that only true luxury brands can afford.
The sole is actually hand-made too. The plateau is made from rubber whilst the body of the heel is made from layers of cut, trimmed and sanded leather sheets with a heel top in rubber, which are mounted onto a leather base to form the finished sole.
Any satin can be damaged by friction. For this reason, please handle this item with due care
Any loose dirt should be wiped away with a soft dry cloth. For more deeply ingrained stains we would advise a professional cleaning service
Please ensure the shoes are always kept in their protective packaging
We would advise against the use of any cleaning products
"DV079 is a paradox of military and romantic references that blend into our most poetic shoe"
