CONSTRUCTION & LEATHER
The Cordoba II is Goodyear welted by our master craftsman, just like all Casa Fagliano shoes, finished with a bark tanned leather sole. The sole is hand-painted and waxed to protect from the elements. They are equipped with a “gentleman’s corner” to prevent the trouser’s cuffs from getting caught on the heel. The Casa Fagliano signature discreetly invites itself on the sole of the shoe.
The Cordoba II has five blind eyelets with waxed cotton laces.
The Cordova II is a velvet brown calf oxford with a natural finish, showcasing the rich hues and variations of the leather, making each shoe unique. The calf comes from the French “Tannerie d’Annonay”, a selection of the finest leather.
