The essence of our shoes is the skill by which they are made.We use minimal machine operations and our shoes are made by hand. Master craftsmen from all over the world work for Lozano and the result is top notch handcrafted leather shoe. It involves more than 200 operations to make a single pair of shoe. So next time you order a pair of shoe from us remember, master craftsmen have specially handcrafted that pair for you.
- Stitched sole construction/ blake stitch-
Most of our shoes are made with this method.This is the alternate that we use to avoid the shoes made with cemented construction. Gums and adhesives used in leather shoes don’t last long and alter the graceful look of a leather shoe. The alter the natural characteristics of leather and reduce its breathability.The adoption of this method is to eliminate all those chemical processes and incorporate all the skills of the master craftsmen for construction of our shoes. After the shoe upper is lasted, the sole is then stitched to the upper & the insole via a stitching thread on a stitching machine. It keeps the sole intact while providing it the required flexibility.
It all starts with this High quality leather arrives in our workshop from some of the best tanneries all over the world. Italy, argentina, India & England to name a few. Lozano uses the highest quality natural materials. A fusion of nature and craftsmanship result in a product that appeals and also lasts. All leathers which are sourced are vegetable.Vegetable tanned leather is tanned using tannins and other ingredients found in vegetable matter such as tree bark, wood, leaves, fruit, and roots. Lozano leather breathes as it would in nature. It is non irritant, soft to the touch, ages richly over time, and biodegrades naturally. The leather remains neutral regardless of temperature, and does not retain sweat or odour, allowing Lozano shoes to be worn barefoot. At Lozano, we use only “FULL-GRAIN” leather. The strongest and most durable part of the hide of an animal is just below the hair. The grain pattern in this part of the hide is very tight, and the leather made from here is called "full-grain" leather.Full-grain leather is the strongest and most durable leather. Additionally, since the grain is so tight, it resists moisture very well.Over time, full-grain leather will look nicer and nicer and develop a patina from being handled.
