Faithful to tradition: our shoes are strictly handmade
A fusion of tradition and creativity, a combination of quality and technical prowess, research and innovation taken to the absolute limits and beyond. Starting from the very best raw materials, we manufacture one-of-a-kind products following the rules and traditional standards of ancient handcrafted articles.
The finest selection of Italian and French leathers
Like an artist’s canvas, the pieces of leather, originally all their natural colour, are hand-painted through complex, scrupulous procedures to produce an infinite number of shades
Shoe trees and awls, hammer and nails: all shoes are crafted with traditional tools
The Sole: A Green Ritual
Organic glue made of potato starch, pieces of cork to absorb humidity, leather aged underground for two years in a mixture of oak wood, chestnut wood and mimosa blossoms to keep its fragrance, lightness and compactness: a ritual that requires time and patience to ensure that the sole of Kiton footwear is perfect for your feet.
Unique and unrepeatable
Every pair of shoes is unique, like those who wear it. Before delivery, Kiton shoes are personalised with the client's name, written on an internal label, and left to rest for three months. They will meet their new owner only when they reach their final shape.
