    The boot shown here defines the term “one-of-a kind”, not only because it is bespoke-custom made, nor indeed that it employs the much desired “whisky” coloured Shell Cordovan but because of the extraordinarily seldom seen “Goiser” (true Norwegian) welt, above and beyond its Closed Channel main hand welt. Read about the technique of Goiser construction elsewhere in the website but, suffice it to say, it is the most complex and painstaking construction, eclipses Goodyear welting and, in this case, is entirely had executed. One can hardly imagine the hours and days invested in the making of this boot….or the expense!

    Bespoke or ready-to-wear, Lattanzi’s shoes are entirely hand made. Perhaps this justifies prices double those of John Lobb’s, although it might well be the extraordinarily lovely leathers they use. Either way, they boast a fiercely loyal clientele for whom all other shoes are thought to be, by comparison, less comfortable and less fine.
    Most of their small staff of artisans in the Italian province of Ancora are dedicated to the production of custom made shoes (prices starting at $5300), but their Madison Avenue shop, opened in 2006, is now offering a variety of prêt-a-porter models at a relatively modest $3175 and up. Lattanzi’s styles have been somewhat “creative” at times, more suitable perhaps for the red carpet at Cannes than the board room or a gentleman’s dining club, but the pair shown here is a welcomed tour-de-force in restraint, a perfectly executed example of a great traditional classic, the Chukka Boot, executed here in finest Horween (Chicago) “Whisky” Shell Cordovan.
