L'Ecrivain is here to bring out your romantic side!
Coming from the most renowned Italian and Portuguese tanneries, the nubuck we use to make our shoes offers an unparalleled velvet feel and enhances vibrant colors like no other leather. It is a high quality leather whose outer skin surface has been very finely sanded. This is why we call it the "grain" of the skin, and it makes nubuck a particularly strong leather. Suitable for both shoes and leather goods, it adds a touch of softness and elegance to your favorite items.
Our Blake-stitched sole with injected rubber pads
Used in most of our men's shoes, the Blake stitch is a single seam connecting the inner sole, the outsole and the stem of the shoe. Simple and sturdy, it makes for soft, slim-shaped shoes that make you feel immediately comfortable. Equipped with a injected rubber pads for better grip, it is handmade by our shoemakers in Portugal to ensure optimal durability for your shoes.
