Diemme Fontesi

DI1407FO11_loItalian footwear brand Diemme are very excited to announce the launch of the Fontesi – a mid top unisex sneaker with a diagonal zip closure. The Fontesi’s origin comes from a technical mountain runner, changed to the unrecognisable to give a clean and minimal sneaker with the main feature being the zipper from Swiss supplier Riri that cuts down the upper. For technical reasons the Fontesi has the strongest zipper Riri produces in order to withstand the test of time.

Diemme are using a Kudu Antelope leather in this colourway from UK tannery Charles F. Stead & Co.  Antelope leathers are thick but incredibly soft and as Kudu is an animal that lives in the wild there will be natural scuff marks and distressed areas on this leather. The style features a nappa leather mouth and a calf leather lined footbed. The famed Serena sole, produced by a family run rubber producer in Marche, Italy, that has been making soles since 1952. A sole that is practically impossible to wear down and will last you a lifetime.
