The Firenze is a new style for Fall 2011 coming from the desire to make a great basic boot with the same standards of quality, lightness and comfort as the Roccia Vet is built around. It is featured here in a stamped full grain from Italian tannery Conceria Emmedue with a grainy texture.
The Vibram Cristy is a historical Vibram design reintroduced in the Vibram Morflex micro-cellular soling compound. Vibram Morflex is 1/3 the weight of composition rubber, and provides maximal lightness combined with high flexibility and bounce. This sole has excellent slip-resistance on floors, but will be slippery on ice due to its extreme flexibility.
The inner lining is made of cow leather instead of pig leather for increased comfort, and the footbed is of vegetable latex with a leather upper lining. A gusseted leather tongue with vegetable latex padding will keep water from permeating the top of the boot, and the padding creates a soft cushion over the instep.
All components, including hardwear and laces, are italian made. Handmade in Onè di Fonte, Italy.
