Italians take leather very seriously. Top-quality leather produces quality dress shoes that look and feel noticeably better. It's also much less prone to getting stained.

They Get You Noticed. When shoes are made by hand, there's no need to make thousands of identical mass-marketable copies, so Italian shoemakers have more room to be creative with styles and materials. Italian shoes have a rich creative flair and often include decorations like heavy broguing, color blocking, or patent leather. You're also likely to find unexpected colors like blues and reds alongside the usual neutral shades. Most Italian shoes are Blake stitched. This means the stitching is done on the inside of the shoe. The upper is first wrapped around the insole and attached to it and the outsole using a single stitch.
This provides a clean silhouette because there is no exterior stitching showing, and makes the shoe easy to resole.
It also makes the shoe more flexible. This, combined with the high-quality soft leather, makes a really noticeable difference to comfort. Quality ones are Goodyear welted.
