What Makes Premium Italian Leather So Special?

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

Most people understand that leather products are considered to be of high quality. No one can deny how intoxicating the smell of new leather is in a brand-new car, or how its smooth texture gives you that classic feeling of elegance and style whenever you touch it. But when you go shopping, you’ll find there are many different types of leather to choose from and few people really understand how one type of leather actually differs from another.

Italian leather is often promoted in the fashion industry as of premium quality. It is recognized as some of the best leather to buy in the world. This leads many to wonder, just what makes this type of leather stand out from all the rest. One of the main reasons for this is because it is manufactured by the very best leather craftsmen in the world. It has never been mass produced like some of the lesser quality products, so no matter what product you buy, you can be sure that you are getting a unique piece that will be different from any other. But those are not the only reasons why Italian leather is considered to be the very best on all fronts.

It's Durable

When you compare leather products, you’ll find the Italian made leather goods to be the most durable. The entire tanning process has been engineered so it can withstand the test of time. Whether you plan to use it every day or only 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 it is made, any nicks or scratches can be easily wiped away, so it will keep its refined appearance for a lifetime. Most Italian leather quality grades come with an extended guarantee, so you can be confident it will have a long life.

It's Unique

We’ve already mentioned some reasons why it is unique but there are many others. Because it is not mass produced, you can be sure that each piece you get will be one of a kind. Each piece of leather will get its own distinctive marks from the tanning process, so it has a look that will make it stand out from every other piece made. No matter what you choose to buy, no two pieces will ever be exactly the same.

It's Always Fashionable

No matter who you are or what your fashion tastes are, Italian made leather products are always going to be in style. Whether it is on a runway in Paris or on a shopping spree in New York City, there will always be some stylish piece made from Italian leather. It is one of the most loved materials found in the world of design. So, if you’re looking for leather made accessories or you’re shopping for a full-on ensemble, you can never go wrong when it comes to Italian leather quality grades.

It's Easy to Maintain

Probably one of the main reasons why Italian made leather products are so special is because it is easy to maintain its luxurious appearance. Especially when you are using it every day. Handbags and other commonly used items tend to lose their appeal with age. The nicks and scratches often take away from the overall appearance of the piece. However, when it is made with high-quality leather from Italy, those same scratches and nicks only add to its natural beauty and elegance.

Whether you are looking for a nice pair of leather shoes to set off your new suit, or you’re buying one of the many fashionable accessories to class it up a bit, you can be assured that if you’re purchasing any Italian made leather products you will be getting something that is not only stylish for today but a timeless classic that will last a lifetime.

Italian made leather products have always held a long-standing reputation, so you know that whatever you purchase like those found here at COMUNITYmade, you are not just buying quality but you’re buying a little bit of fashion history along with it.

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.
