The age old adage about the french and style may have lost its weight over the past few decades but Piola are trying to redress the balance and may actually be winning.
Made from Peruvian rubber and cotton producers. Today, thanks to the combination of competent Portuguese manufacturers, Italian leather and French design, Piola is not only one of the most ethical shoemakers out there but also one of the most detailed. the subtle combination of contrasting fabrics and juxtaposing opposing colors, results in shoes that will surely get you noticed. The silhouette I have fallen in love with is the Barranco, design cues from New Balance and Adidas runners fuse seamlessly with dress shoe elements that easily make this one of my all time favourite hybrids.
