Bruschetta Shoes are designed and produced by Brass Tokyo, the same workshop and artisans behind Clinch Boots. As such, these sandals are made on the same vintage and antique machines, using old world production techniques to develop a modern shoe with the personality and durability of a bespoke vintage sandal.
With a paneled upper made of interwoven leather strips, the fit can be adjusted with a buckle at the outer ankle. They stand on a sleek crepe sole, soft and exceptionally comfortable (but not recommended for wet or inclement weather, these are sandals) for walking around in. The midsole and "insole" are both a full grain vegetable tanned leather, with an addition suede pad under the heel for comfort.
They feature a 360 degree goodyear flat welt construction, that can be resoled and repaired by a cobbler when necessary. The lightweight sandal and veg tanned leather will quickly break in and take the shape of your foot, darkening with exposure to light and moisture as you wear them.
These run very large, but are sandals and therefor do not require the same precise type of fit as boots do. Choose one size smaller than your brannock size. If you are between sizes, take the smaller of the two
