Details about 10 MS
The trainer has traditionally been one of the most popular types of leisure shoes. No. 10 MS, which evokes the classic design of this beloved athletic shoe, has been painstakingly handcrafted in the heart of Tuscany. Moreover, this black men’s trainer from our “Italian Line” thrills with its lightweight Blake-stitched construction.
The perfect leisure shoe — the men’s trainer in black
No. 10 MS is distinguished by its dynamic basic shaft cut as well as its closed six-eyelet lacing. Its supple, gleaming toe cap and counter have been made from the finest Italian calf, while the rest of the shaft is made from alternating segments of soft velours and napped textile. The fully dyed black upper’s mix of materials helps lend this men’s trainer an air of sporty nonchalance. In keeping with tradition, the lining and insole are made of leather, which ensures that No. 10 MS is highly breathable and provides a perfect fit. A comfortable last and EVA synthetic sole additionally elevate wearing comfort.
This black men’s trainer is wholly unsuitable for formal occasions, and should only be worn in an informal context. This comfortable shoe ensures a stylish, casual appearance, and can be combined with many different kinds of leisurewear.
‘Trainer’ is a catchall term that refers to athletic shoes. These types of shoes were first produced in America, in 1860. Known for their flexible rubber soles, these comfortable shoes were originally created for track and field events, the requirements of which continue to influence trainer design. Trainers have been popular since the 1960s, and are worn on an everyday basis. Today they are available in all kinds of forms and colours—the trainers in our collection, for instance, are special, premium models.
The trainer last is very similar to the sporty last — it also ensures wearing comfort at the ball of the foot. This type of last is distinguished by a gently rounded toe cap, flat instep and roomy overall width. Suitable for average-width feet.
This shoe’s upper consists of premium, fully-dyed and medium-soft calfskin. The technical term for this type of leather is "Italian calf". It is distinguished by its even grain and soft grip.
Processed velours is an extremely fine, fully-dyed type of rough leather that is taken from the flesh side of the hide. Velours is extremely soft and resistant to soiling. It is easy to care for; regular brushing with a suede brush suffices to keep your velours shoes in good shape.
The models in this collection are the products of traditional Tuscan handicraft. These dreamy, Blake-stitched shoes are made from the finest leathers, and boast truly stylish designs. 100% made in Italy.

The values we live by
Lots of brands are quick to conceal the production methods behind their products, as well as the origins of the materials they use. We, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. From the very beginning, our products have been »Made in the EU«, in the classic sense. As such, we treat both our fellow man and the natural environment in a way that’s ecologically sustainable and ethically responsible. Each step on our supply chain is entirely transparent for you to see—that’s a promise we’re happy to stand by.
Made in EU
While most of our peers in the shoe industry are still unable to guarantee shoes that are »made in the EU«, we’re able to prove that our shoes are just that. We use leather from France and Germany, manufacture our shoes in Spain, and run distribution and logistics in Germany—our shoes are 100% made in Europe.
For many companies, all that matters are the profits; they fail to take notice of the disastrous conditions under which hides are taken in Bangladesh, or shoes are manufactured in China. We turn instead to traditional European tanneries and Spanish craftsmanship, to the benefit of man and nature alike.
Our promise: since you’re purchasing directly from the manufacturer, you’re spared the typical high margins. You’re also spared the additional cost of paying for a brand name. Thanks to our advantageous wide reach and our low cost structure, we’re able to offer sensationally low prices.
From the provenance and treatment of the leather we use, to the conditions in our Spanish factory, to delivery with our logistics partner, we don’t leave any stone unturned. We provide copious, transparent information on every step in our supply chain.
