IDEA SMOKING CALF
A series that uses "Tuscany smoking calf" developed by a leather tanner in Tuscany, Italy, which is famous for producing high-quality leather products for the upper part of the IDEA series, a model that represents negroni.
Buffalo (water buffalo) calf leather is tanned, colored, and then white wax is applied to create a beautiful unevenness that looks like a haze over the entire leather. It has a texture that is soft and confined to the skin you have.
Buffing (polishing) is applied to the toe, heel tongue, and around the stitching, and the leather color and luster hidden under the white wax emerge, creating a beautiful gradation.
The muted colors are not only suitable for driving, but it also goes well with jacket styles, etc. It is a tasteful upper that you can enjoy the growth of leather as you wear it.
Because it is hand-finished, the expression of each leather is different. Please understand that each pair is different from the image.
To clean, wipe with a dry, clean cloth, and occasionally apply a thin and gentle emulsified colorless cream such as delicate cream.
Please be aware that using creams with strong wax (wax) ingredients, wax removers, and strong continuous friction will remove the white wax and greatly change the color and texture.
The laces are waxed round laces.
Below is a description common to the IDEA series.
"negroni", which brings together the best of technology to achieve a slender and elegant form and the ultimate in comfort.
The design is designed to look slim, but when you put your feet in it doesn't feel cramped.
The flowing design like a sports car is impressive, and the three-dimensional "n" mark and color-coordinated stitching tighten the whole.
Overall, it has a sporty appearance, but it also has an elegant atmosphere at its core, and it fits well with a slightly sharp look like a jacket style.
The Italian rubber sole has a rolled-up heel that prevents the shoes from being damaged when operated by the pedals and allows for smooth movement.
In addition, it is not only used as driving shoes, but also has a highly cushioned sole, durability, and functionality, so it can be used as a luxurious walking shoe.
The cushioning material is built into the entire interior, so when you put your feet in, you will be surprised in a good way by the soft and enveloping feeling.
In addition, the insole for IDEA is made of an anti-static material called "Callock Stuffer" that has a photocatalytic reaction (when exposed to ultraviolet light or fluorescent light, a photocatalytic reaction occurs, and organic matter such as the source of odors attached to it is decomposed. (Materials with added functions of active titanium oxide that can obtain antibacterial and deodorant effects) processing, orderless (decomposes and suppresses generation of ammonia and fatty acids, and has antibacterial, deodorizing, deodorizing, and antifungal effects) processing In addition, the toe part is made of high-resilience material, and the heel part is made of low-resilience shock-absorbing material. It is made.
The same material as the insole is used for the entire lining, and it is designed to achieve a higher effect.
> *Because we use natural leather, there may be small scratches or uneven color, but please note that this is a characteristic of the material.
* Please refer to the bottom of this page for size guides.
The thicker the leather, the harder it often feels, but the custom-tanned "Negroni leather" does not feel stiff, and the natural grain (unevenness) gives it a beautiful surface feel and a smooth feel to the fingers. I think that the texture that sticks to you will surely satisfy your sense of ownership.
◆ It's not just the driving scene! They are also shoes for walking.
Used by professional racing drivers, "Negroni" = "driving shoes", so it seems that the image of driving shoes is strong, but in fact, it has sufficient cushioning, a wooden shape that does not constrict the toes, and a good burr. It is also a "shoe for walking hard" that combines (flexible flexibility, bending and returning).
The reason lies in the construction of the shoe.
Surprisingly, counting from the bottom to the upper, it has an 8-layer structure.
A typical leather sneaker is probably about 4 layers, or 6 layers at most, so you can see the unusual elaborateness.
I will introduce in order from the sole
① Rubber sole made by Gomusu in Italy (excluding some models)
(2) Fiber sheet (stiffness is ensured by compressing paper from the arch to the heel). Attach the shank (middle bone) here
③ Leather board (leather powder hardened with rubber, secret of good return)
④ Three-dimensional truss mesh (creates a layer and flow of air in the toe area, making it less stuffy in the summer and warmer in the winter)
⑤ Molding latex (arch cushion that supports the arch part with a surface)
⑥ Lining (optical fiber mesh, etc.)
⑦ Brushed urethane (with cushion foam on the entire inside to make the foot feel softer)
⑧ Upper leather (Negroni leather)
The moment you put it on, it feels like you're covered in another durable thick skin, yet it's comfortable to wear.
Technology and ingenuity are also applied to prevent thick = hot.
◆ Sophisticated design that fits well not only on holidays but also in the business scene
Basically, it is a casual sneaker type, but the design sense that is reminiscent of the beautiful Italian cocktail, which is the origin of the name, has an elegant atmosphere at the bottom, and it can be worn with a jacket style. Also, there is no sense of incongruity, rather than perfect.
It is sure to come in handy not only for everyday use, but also for various occasions such as business trips, outdoor activities, and travel.
◆ Uses wooden molds that are thoroughly modeled after Japanese foot shapes
Recently, the foot shape of Japanese people is becoming westernized, and the number of people with thin and thin foot shape is increasing.
When wearing slim and smartly designed sneakers, you may often choose a display size that is larger than the actual size of your foot, but "Negroni" is different. We thoroughly studied the average foot shape of Japanese people (you can guess the stiffness from the structure above), and created a unique shoe tree that looks stress-free and neat.
Therefore , if you choose the same size as your regular sneakers, it will definitely be "large".
◎ Approximate best size
* On a white paper, draw a “T”-shaped line with vertical and horizontal lines intersecting at right angles.
* Place the paper along the wall of the hard floor with the horizontal bar of the "T" folded over and the horizontal bar against the wall.
* With the socks you will be using on top of the paper, relax and stand up straight.
* Align the deepest point on the heel with the part (wall) where the "T" crosses.
* Stand so that the tip of your toe (thumb, index finger, or middle finger) is in the middle of the extending line of the "T".
* Draw a horizontal line on the tip of the toe with a pencil or pen.
* Use a ruler to measure the straight line distance between the intersection of the "T"s (the bent portion) and the mark.
* The numerical value becomes "Sokucho".
In the case of Negroni, foot length ≒ Negroni size is almost correct.
Actually, it depends on the width of the foot, the height of the instep, the shape of the fingers, and your preference, so it's just a guideline.
Foot length: Negroni (IDEA) size
26.7 cm or more and less than 27.2 cm: 27.0 cm
26.2 cm or more and less than 26.7 cm: 26.5 cm
25.7 cm or more and less than 26.2 cm: 26.0 cm
25.2 cm or more and less than 25.7 cm: 25.5 cm
24.7 cm or more and less than 25.2 cm: 25.0 cm
24.2 cm or more and less than 24.7 cm: 24.5 cm
23.7 cm or more and less than 24.2 cm: 24.0 cm
If you choose , I think it's probably the right size. You don't need to calculate the discard size.
◆ Even though they are sneakers, they are not disposable!
In general, sneakers are not made on the assumption that the sole will be replaced, unlike dress shoes with the Goodyear welted manufacturing method, so once the sole wears out, it will be difficult to repair and you will not be able to wear it anymore. .
But Negroni is different. We accept sole repair.
It takes time (depending on factory conditions) and actual cost to go through the process of peeling off the sole and reapplying a new sole, but being able to recycle shoes that are familiar with your feet is very eco-friendly and valuable. I think that's the thing.
At the beginning of the transaction, I was very moved by the words of the former president, "We will take responsibility for the products that we produce ourselves until the very end."
◆ Sole exchange [In order to reduce the customer's cost burden, it has been changed to accept directly from the manufacturer. ]
If the upper leather is not torn, the sole can be replaced at least once. Only all sole exchange is accepted.
The repair period is about one month. We also accept sole exchanges for our original products at the manufacturer.
