What started out as Guidi, an Italian tannery business in 1896, has now become Guidi Shoes, the celebrated shoe collection that Ruggero Guidi started in 2004. The collection came about through dabbling in washing and dyeing leather, in addition to coming up with innovative and handcrafted designs. The solid color result happens through “object dyeing,” a result not often seen in present-day shoemaking. Just as each person has their distinctive characteristics, Guidi Shoes have features like zippers and laces to accommodate to multiple styles. The Guidi Slip On Shoe relies on its full grain leather base and no lining to provide a look that is easily paired with any ensemble. If you’re looking for a little more flair, the Guidi Zip Ankle Boot has a solid full grain leather base as well as a back zip closure, extra rubber soles, and a lined interior.
