Men's Alberto Fasciani Boots & Shoes
Whoever wears my footwear must feel as it belongs to him from the very first time, just like if he has spent his whole life with it" -Alberto Fasciani
Founded in 1950, Alberto Fasciani is one of Italy’s most distinctive makers of leather footwear. Drawing on his equestrian roots, Mr. Fasciani made his name producing some of the finest stivali equitazione—riding boots—on the international scene. Before long, Fasciani boots were the footwear of choice for individual champions and national equestrian teams the world over. Though the equestrian lifestyle’s uniquely rugged elegance certainly informs his aesthetic—his facility with leather’s organic, expressive character and his sense for balancing beautiful form with fearless function are truly exceptional—Fasciani is (excuse the expression) no one-trick pony. He has an especially keen eye for melding classic styles with modern design, the kind that speaks to a thorough appreciation of history. From ruggedly pared down monk straps to gracefully simple brogan boots, Fasciani’s creations not only display his mastery of leather as a sartorial medium, but also reflect an artfully post-modern sense for subtle reinterpretations of stylistic meaning and visual effect.
