THE WELT PROCESSING TECHNIQUE
A perfect, extremely comfortable and stylish shoe made to last over time. For its manufacture SOLAZZO uses a long and delicate processing method of English origin, a guarantee of exceptional quality: the Goodyear method. With  the Goodyear processing technique, the welt, a soft leather strip, is sewn to  the trim of the channel of the  leather insole, thus fixing the upper and the lining together. Then the sole is applied and sewn. In the gap between the insole and the sole there is a filling middle-sole. The final result, just perfect, rewards the great skill and the extreme precision needed in this manufacturing technique.

Norwegian method

THE CHARM OF A HANDMADE WORKMANSHIP
The Norwegian method is one of the most complex construction techniques: it is a laborious process that requires considerable time and it is carried out exclusively by hand. Its realization begins after the upper has been cleverly shaped on the last. Two seams are needed to complete the work: the first seam binds the upper and the insole together, whereas the second seam binds the upper and the sole. The result is the plaited border that draws the edge of the shoe with a marked bold line and offers a robust and solid shoe, ready to challenge  time.

Real tubular moccasin

 A PROCESSING TECHNIQUE ENVELOPING LIKE A GLOVE
The workmanship of this method is the quintessence of softness and flexibility. It is carried out  by capable hands with great mastery of craftsmanship, using light elastic kinds of leather, indispensable in finishing this type of processing with great accuracy. Thanks to the seam carried out on the last, this shoe can envelop  your foot in the most natural way, thus giving you a comfortable fit and robustness while walking in full freedom. During the tubular processing, the upper rises from the bottom to the sides of the shoe, and it is fixed in mirror image by a thick pleating with the typical handmade seam. Inside the shoe, which has already taken its shape, the insole is inserted while the sole is applied and sewn lastly.

A PROCESSING METHOD FOR PERFECT ELEGANCE
In the Blake processing method, the sole, the  insole and  the upper are assembled  in one single operation through a seam. In order to do this, the shoe must be removed from the last. It is then put back on the last to complete the following phases:  heel assembly, trimming, polishing and dyeing. The result is an aesthetically perfect, solid and comfortable shoe.

Finishings

THE EXCLUSIVE SOLAZZO TOUCH

Coloring is the ultimate touch that enhances the complexity of manual craftsmanship. Creams, colors, transparencies alternate in a process once again articulated in various phases. Sprayed, darkened, softened, the color is applied in order to obtain original and exclusive nuances that enhance the true personality of the shoe. The vintage finishing treatment, made with exclusive techniques, gives each footwear item a particularly worn out texture, with effects ranging from aging to extreme vintage, full of charm and history.
