What Makes Premium Italian Leather So Special?

August 28, 2019

When picking up your next pair of shoes, be sure to check on the leather quality grade. Read on to find out why we at COMUNITYmade make all of our shoes with genuine Italian leather...

Leather products are known to be of high quality. Think about the intoxicating smell of new leather in a brand-new car, for instance. Or how simply touching the smooth texture of leather gives you that feeling of classic elegance and style. There are many different types of leather, however, and few people really understand how one type actually differs from the other.

Italian leather is often promoted as something of premium quality in the fashion industry and is recognized as one of the best leather to buy in the world. This begs the question: What, exactly, makes this type of leather stand out from the rest? For one, it is manufactured by the very best leather craftsmen in the world – those who use only natural vegetable and plant-based extracts in the tanning process. Italian leather has never been mass-produced, unlike some of the lesser-quality products, so regardless of which product you buy, you will always receive a unique piece that will be different from any other.
Those, however, are not the only reasons Italian leather is considered to be the very best on all fronts. Here are four other reasons it is so highly regarded: 

It's durable

When you compare leather products, you’ll find that Italian-made leather goods are the most durable. The entire tanning process has been engineered so that it can withstand the test of time. Whether you plan to use it every day or once in a while, it will take whatever wear and tear you put on it and still come out looking stylish and sophisticated. Because of the way Italian leather is made, any nicks or scratches can be easily wiped away, so its refined appearance will be retained for a lifetime. Most Italian leather quality grades also come with an extended guarantee, so you can be confident that it will have a long life.

It's unique

As we mentioned earlier – because Italian leather is not mass produced, each piece produced will be unique; every piece of leather will have its own distinctive marks from the natural tanning process.  No matter what you buy, no two pieces will ever be exactly the same. But, most importantly, what makes your piece of leather unique is that it can be shaped into your very own through everyday wear and life experiences.







It's easy to maintain

One of the main reasons Italian-made leather products are so special is because maintaining their luxurious appearance is so easy. Handbags and other commonly used accessories tend to lose their appeal with age, due to nicks and scratches – especially with everyday wear; however, with high-quality Italian leather, those same nicks and scratches only add to its natural beauty and elegance.

Whether you are looking for a nice pair of leather shoes to go with your new suit or buying a fashionable accessory to upgrade your look, Italian-made leather products are not only stylish for today, but a timeless classic that will last a lifetime. 

 

It'll always be fashionable

Regardless of contemporary fads or trends, Italian-made leather products are always going to be in style. There will always be some stylish piece made from Italian leather, as it is one of the most beloved materials in the world of design. So, whether you’re looking for leather-made accessories or shopping for a full-on ensemble, you can never go wrong with Italian leather quality grades.

 Italian-made leather products have a great long-standing reputation, so you know that whenever you purchase premium-quality products made from Italian leather (like the ones we offer here at COMUNITYmade), you are not buying just quality, but a little bit of the fashion history that comes along with the product(s).

Find Your Perfect Size


We want to help make sure that your new shoes have the best fit possible.  

We have created a separate fit for men and women to provide the ultimate foot hugging comfort.  Our sockliner and upper materials will naturally mold to your foot and stretch out after a short period of time, so do allow for this when trying our shoes on initially.

 

 In general, our shoes are running closer to an everyday shoe fit vs. an athletic shoe fit and can be worn with or without socks - but the socks have to be eye catching for best results.

 

Any variances from this chart will be noted on each individual product page.
