How are the shoes made?
DIS footwear is constructed using a traditional handcrafted way, guaranteeing the wearer a natural, long-lasting and comfortable shoe with an excellent fit and good design. This is why all DIS shoes are made using Blake construction technique and natural materials such as hides, treated leather, and cotton.
Where are the shoes made?
DIS shoes are made in the Marche, the heartland of men’s luxury footwear, by the skilled hands of artisans who have produced footwear for generations. All stages of production are carried out by the same company, giving us full control over each step and guaranteeing an excellent quality “Made in Italy” product.
How should I care for my shoes?
Never wear the same pair of shoes for two consecutive days. Keep your shoes in their wooden lasts – this helps them dry out and prevents wrinkles. Always clean your shoes with a cotton cloth then shine them with a wax-based polish, brushing vigorously and removing excess shine with a clean cotton cloth.
What sizes are available?
Sizes go from 36 to 52 including half sizes. DIS shoes are made using the Paris point system, the most widely used measurement system in the world. A Parish point is equal to 2/3 cm, or 6,667mm. To obtain your size you need to measure the length of your foot in centimetres, multiply by 3 and divide by 2. To this sum add 1.5 and round down to the middle number higher. You will find your size in Paris point. Example: foot length 26.5 cm. Size = (26.5 * 3/2) = 39.75 +1.5 = 41.5
The shoes don’t fit me properly
Design Italian Shoes is very sorry that your shoes do not fit you well and will be happy to help you solve the problem. If they fit too loosely or come off, they suggest that you try resolving the problem by inserting an insole; this simple trick often helps you to regain as much as a half size. If they are too narrow, take them to a reliable shoemaker, who can widen them with the use of a special last. Also in this case it is possible to recover up to a half size. If this is needed, Design Italian Shoes will be happy to refund you for this operation with a voucher for a maximum of € 15 to spend on your next order. Just send an email with a description of the problem and a copy of the receipt for the alteration.
