The Octavian blends the elevated style of a distinguished monk dress shoe with the durable and relaxed vibe of a boot. Featuring a double buckle monk and side zip fastening, these smart boots will allow you to move from the boardroom to the bar effortlessly. The technique used to achieve this artwork is known as ‘Anticatura’, which is the Italian word for antique finishing. It is a specialty of Italian and French maestro shoemakers. Entrusted to the hands of the antique finisher, the upper part of the shoe becomes a work of art. The Anticatura method is a hand dyeing procedure of leather.
