In 1895, Alessandro Berluti, a trained cabinetmaker and a lover of elegant forms, devised the famous lace-up shoe. Every Berluti generation since has reinterpreted this invention, and the shoe has changed imperceptibly over the years. The lace-up shoe, a historic and emblematic model made from a single piece of leather, without any visible seam, has come to symbolize Maison Berluti and is the purest expression of its uncompromising style. A clever blend of Démesures and Galet, the Alessandro New Genova delivers a pleasant surprise in its laid-back elegance. This style is also the only Alessandro that bears the Scritto signature motif.
