Its roots lie in the lines and technological processes used to make work shoes and boots. Nothing unusual about that – after all, Pezzol 1951 has been one of the undisputed world leaders in this sector ever since the ‘50s, when the Barletta-based firm started to produce footwear for use on oil rigs.  

A few seasons ago, however, the company decided to apply its technology – particularly the injection process whereby the sole is moulded directly onto the upper without the use of glues to give greater sturdiness, flexibility and lightness – to “urban” inspired collections.

For the next Spring-Summer season, five lines have been shown at the 90th edition of Pitti Uomo, just finished in Florence: the Reporter, basic and classic, Archivio ’62, inspired by the firm’s historical archives, the Royal Navy, which reflects the style of the shoes worn off-duty by navy officers, the Techno Classic, which gives a new technological twist to a classic British style, and the Cut-Resistant, in high-strength techno nylon.
