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.

In an interesting collaboration, Vans Vault has gotten together with Italian shoe maker Diemme on the Buffalo Boot LX. Diemme presents the Buffalo Boot in an outdoor aesthetic inspired by their own Roccia Vet silhouette, rebuilding the vulcanized model with welted construction methods. Waterproof suede uppers, gusseted tongue, Vibram outsole, metal hardware and heavy duty hiker laces are utilized in this collaborative redesign for complete protection against the elements. Finished off with debossed co-branding, the Vault by Vans x Diemme Buffalo Boot LX ships this month in root and black/mouton offerings. Look for more Vault projects with Diemme in spring 2013.
