Guidi considers the leather shoe an art form. The brand’s traditional inception can be traced to leather tanners and shoemakers Guido Guidi, Giovanni Rosellini, and Gino Ulivo. In 1896, they established Conceria Guidi Rossellini at Pescia in Tuscany to promote and to refine their craftsmanship. In fact, Ruggero Guidi leads the tannery to excellence and instills accustomed practices into each creation to this day. Designers from around the world seek out Guidi’s expertise and considers it to be one of the most esteemed leather tanneries ever.
Guidi’s shoe project is an amalgamation of his passion for leather and his respect for traditional cobbler practices. He manages to maintain the brand’s ethos and adopt modern technology into the process. The Spring/Summer 2016 collection is about soft leather that becomes effortlessly stylish with age and wide silhouettes which embody comfort. Each boot is leather throughout and that includes the soles.
