Milanese footwear label Velasca is renowned for its beautifully handcrafted shoes that span everything from Oxfords to monk straps, moccasins to loafers. With a made-in-Italy ethos at its core, everything it produces is made with utmost care and attention to detail, following the centuries-old tradition of Italian craftsmanship.
It should come as no surprise, then, that Velasca's latest collection of unlined shoes is high on our radar. Landing just in time for the warmer months, the range features five new lightweight styles – two types of Derby (a stitched-toe style and plainer, more traditional style), a Chelsea boot, lace-up boot and penny loafer – all of which are handcrafted by artisans in the shoemaking district of Montegranaro, using the finest suede calf leathers for the uppers, along with lightweight leather soles.
Boasting ultra-lightweight, unlined construction, these shoes are designed to see you stylishly and comfortably through the spring and summer months. Each style is available in a variety of versatile neutral hues – dark brown, tobacco brown, brown and beige – so you can opt for the colour that most suits the rest of your warm weather wardrobe. The refined, unfussy aesthetic lends Velasca's unlined shoes ultimate versatility – team them with anything from a lightweight trench and pale denim jeans to a breezy linen shirt and classic chinos. The perfect finishing touch to your spring and summer attire.
