FOR US, QUALITY IS A BLEND OF EXCELLENT MATERIALS, IMPECCABLE MANUFACTURING, ITALIAN DESIGN AND SAFETY.
THE UNIQUENESS OF LEATHER
The company uses only fine leathers, with characteristic shades and imperfections that make them distinctive. In fact, the slight variations in colour due to time and wear, or the light scratches, make these leathers authentic and beautiful, so that each product is unique and inimitable.
PULL UP LEATHER
Leather made with a special treatment based on waxes and anilines that give it a distinctive, intense look. This type of leather becomes lighter with use over time, and its life continues to the delight of the person wearing it.
A full-grain leather to which a shiny resin is applied, which is then removed by hand to allow the lighter background colour of the leather to be revived and to then give it a sophisticated writing effect, resembling antique leather.
Full-grain leather with removable finish, scratched on the surface in both directions to remove the surface colour and allow the lighter background colour to emerge. These uneven scratches ensure appealing shades and nuances.
Fine full-grain leather that requires an accurate brushing process. This process enhances writability and makes the surface extremely soft and velvet-like.
Greased leather with a fine finish: its cutting phase requires a high level of professionalism and expertise in handmade manufacturing in order to preserve the evenness of its shades in each pair of shoes.
Assembling a shoe is a pivotal moment in defining Stylmartin quality. This is why the company has chosen to produce all of its footwear in Europe, thus ensuring excellence in both aesthetics and manufacturing.
The company has recovered several processes from its heritage, one of the most characteristic being Ideal manufacturing, a special artisanal technique that involves fixing the upper to the sole. The upper, with the edges facing outwards, is glued and pressed onto a midsole, which is then sewn by a Rapid machine. The thread (made of cotton at first and then of nylon or of a synthetic material) is treated in a special boiler with molten pitch, to ensure complete waterproofing of the thread itself and of the holes. This type of manufacturing allows any type of footwear to be resoled with extreme simplicity, giving it exceptional flexibility and torsional capacity in order to manufacture a high-quality shoe.
SECURITY AND PROTECTION
Stylmartin also pays great attention to certification, which guarantees not only the excellence of its footwear but, above all, their compliance with European regulations on safety devices. This certification is issued by accredited bodies after passing strict tests that guarantee the absolute suitability of its products, ensuring high protection standards.
Every day, Stylmartin strives to ensure that every shoe it produces is first and foremost safe and comfortable, which is why it is scrupulously committed to complying with the recent EU regulation 2016/425 and to certifying all its footwear. However, given the current phase of progressive adaptation to the regulation, shoes awaiting approval - although perfectly safe and protective - cannot yet be legally regarded as certified personal protective equipment (PPE).
Stylmartin footwear perfectly expresses the value of Italian Design, not only because it is entirely designed in Italy but also because - as for Made in Italy design - it is the ideal combination of shape and function, an effective and harmonious blend of aesthetics and functionality.
On the one hand, aesthetic research, the pursuit by means of design of beautiful, attractive shapes that fully enhance the lines of the foot and reflect current trends; on the other hand, the meticulous and accurate investigation of the ergonomics of footwear in relation to the proportions and anatomical characteristics of the foot and its behaviour in motion, as well as the study of how the shoe is used in all conditions of use. Thanks to an accurate R&D and design process, Stylmartin is capable of achieving a harmonious blend of aesthetic demands in terms of shape and functionality requirements, which are thus fully integrated into the final product. In this way, each Stylmartin shoe is a testament to Italian Design and its value worldwide.
