1. Product information

What makes Boté A Mano footwear special?

Boté A Mano shoes are the result of the merge of know-hows between different cultures. The shoes are produced in the heart of Italy with the finest leather for their soles and linings. The fabric that is used on the upper part of the shoes is however, sourced from the countries known for their exquisite textile weaving since the era of the ancient silk road. For this, founders, Niloufar & Edoardo, are constantly on the road in search of artisans that are still keeping their traditional weaving techniques alive.

The “Inaugural Collection” is produced with the collaboration of the Indian textile weavers from Banaras and master shoemakers in Italy. The goal of Boté A Mano is to open a dialogue between different cultures throughout all stages of their supply chain.

What material do you use for the sole?
All the Boté A Mano shoes are made with a half  a rubber sole that protects the leather sole of the shoes from soft rains and slippery surface while making them long lasting.

Will the shoes go ever on Sale?

The Boté A Mano shoes are produced with hand-woven historical fabrics in limited editions and are launched at variable dates within the year. Therefore, they do not follow a normal seasonal cycle and as a result will not go on sales at the end of the season. However, we sometimes give special discounts to customers that sign up to our Newsletters or follow us on Instagram or Facebook .

Will Boté A Mano shoes be replenished when out of stock?

As every shoe is produced with one of a kind textiles hand-woven in limited quantities, the chance of re-producing the same model with the same textile is very low. Therefore, depending to the availability of the fabric, we might or we might not replenish the model.
