Sometimes it seems so difficult to find great footwear that’s modern but not over-the-top or too trendy. You could easily wander the stores for hours and come up with nothing. But don’t worry, there are some great shoes out there and this year we think that Italian shoemaker Buttero has the answer to your shopping woes with their Autumn/Winter 2012 collection.
What Buttero does best is take classic shapes and styles and make them modern with unexpected details like visible stitching and contrasting colors. The Tanino Hi Top and Low Top are two of the standard silhouettes in Buttero’s lineup and this season’s suede versions are real standouts. Handmade in Italy, Buttero shoes are known for their quality and it’s definitely visible in this collection. Vegetable tanned leather laces, insoles and accents are combined with nickel eyelets and rubber soles.
The contrasting toe caps and heels in rich brown leather, slightly scuffed rubber, and oversized front stitches deliver on the style and take the Tanino from a neutral classic to a subdued style masterpiece. It’s just the thing you need to get yourself out of the store-by-store search and into some amazing Made in Italy sneakers.
