Salvatore Ferragamo celebrates a century-long commitment to master craftsmanship with the launch this season of an exclusive made-to-order Tramezza men’s shoe initiative. Highlighting the exceptional quality and construction of the iconic Tramezza range – the most prestigious in Salvatore Ferragamo men’s footwear - the new TRAMEZZA MADE TO ORDER programme presents elegant new styles and customization options that provide the pinnacle of exclusivity, based on the customer's taste.
A traditional handcrafting process, Tramezza represents the ultimate in men’s handcrafted footwear. The procedure entails a thick yet flexible layer of leather (as opposed to more widely used cork) being skillfully inserted between the insole and the sole, like a cushion. The name of this extra sole is tramezza [meaning literally ‘something in-between’] and it offers long-lasting form, comfort, and perfect bonding of sole and upper part, therefore becoming the defining feature of the shoe. The highly complex construction process carried out in the Salvatore Ferragamo workshops has 260 separate, standardized phases requiring over six hours work by an expert shoemaker and over four days shaping of the upper on a last.
