Bringing Arteana shoes to life, from sketch to quality assurance, requires months' of preparation and more than 30 unique components. Components which, in the hands of our craftsmen, gradually are transformed into shoes through the celebrated Italian art of shoe making.
A sophisticated process where each shoe is refined through dozens of steps, each step demanding different expertises from our craftsmen to ensure millimetric precision in their hand-assembly and turning into the result of that perfect balance and fit which Arteana shoes are known for.
Recently, cutting-edge technology allowed us to innovate the traditional made-to-order process and our craftsmen now bring Arteana shoes to life in less than 6 weeks, making our made-to-order collections in higher demand than ever.
