True to our ambition of providing our clients with wardrobe essentials that are designed and crafted exclusively for them, we’re proud to present our collection of luxury shoes, bags, belts and accessories. All our items are handmade in Spain using the best selection of leathers and sartorial fabrics.

Handcrafted with love and dedication

From hand-cut leather to Goodyear welting or Blake sole stitching, every part of our products is produced exclusively for your order and to your exact specifications. The best artisans collaborate in the manufacturing process by hand cutting, hand-painting and hand stitching every product.

Made to order, from start to finish

Our shoes are fully lined with soft calfskin leather for the ultimate comfort. While most companies only partially line their shoes, we go the extra mile because it results in more comfortable shoes that take less time to break in.

Different techniques

Patina workshop

Patina is a technique perfected for shoes by Olga Berluti in the 1980s. She thought nothing was more beautiful than a shoe burnished by time itself, the colour of which is beginning to wear naturally. ‘Those alone have a soul,’ she said.

Our patina technique, developed by Mario Rodriguez, one of the country’s best patina artists, begins with a very specific type of crust leather. The leather is coloured by applying natural pigments and a variety of hand dyeing techniques, to create different textures.

Stencil art

Stencilling is a technique of reproducing decorative designs by applying ink or paint to a surface through holes cut into a template. Each pair of shoes featuring stencilled designs is individually hand-stencilled in our facilities. We use special paints developed for this purpose and templates created by andranno.

Burnishing effect

Burnishing is the process of giving leather an antiqued effect to create a variation of shades. Burnishing is meant to bring out the light and dark tones of the product, focusing on giving the leather more depth of colour. Burnishing gives leather products an appearance of exclusiveness and high quality.

Bear in mind that the visual rendered by our 3D designing tool represents an approximation of the finished effect. Hand burnishing is an artisanal technique that gives each pair of shoes a unique finish.

Our raw materials

Leather is the fundamental building block of each of our products, and its production requires masterful skill. The following rule of thumb holds true in determining a leather’s quality: the longer leather has been processed, the higher its quality. Naturally, this comes at a price as we only use high-quality raw materials.


Our calf tanneries are from northwest Spain, Germany and Italy.


Below is our entire selection of different types of leather. All are used in the production of luxury goods to achieve different looks and textures.

Painted calf leather

Painted calf leather, also called crust calf, is untreated and can be hand-painted by artisans using special creams and brushes. The look is very artisanal. We source our painted calf leather from Conceria Tolio in Italy (the same as used by Santoni, Berlutti, Andres Sendra and many other brands). Painted calf leathers are hand-painted by our artisans.

Box calf leather

Most high-quality men’s shoes are made from box calf leather, or calfskin. This leather is primarily distinguished by its fineness, pliability and grain. Box calf leathers are hand-painted by our artisans.

Polished calfskin

Polished calfskin refers to calfskin with a topcoat that eliminates any imperfections. Though a less natural look compared to plain full-grain leather, the effect is a smooth, luxurious finish. This type of leather is quite expensive because of the post-production process involved at the tannery. Polished calf leathers are hand-painted by our artisans.

Calf suede

Also called suede or lux suede, this type of leather is created from the underside of the animal hide, resulting in a softer, more supple texture with the appearance of a velvety ‘nap’.

Kid suede

Kid suede is the most soft and velvety type of suede leather. The skins are pretty small, which increases the price of the leather (per pair). It has a more refined finish with a smaller grain.

Patent leather

This is a type of leather with a surface that is coated to achieve a high-gloss, shiny appearance.

Sartorial fabrics

We offer a full array of sartorial fabrics, flannels and velvets in sartorial patterns such as tweed, plaid, tartan, herringbone, leopard and more. The result of mixing these sartorial elements with classic hand painted leather can be truly astonishing.

Nubuck leather

This type of lightweight, supple leather is made from the outermost layer of a hide. Its surface is buffed to give the grain a light, velvety finish called a ‘nap’.

Cordovan

Shell cordovan is a smooth, lustrous and richly coloured equine leather in shades of burgundy, brown and black. The process of making shell cordovan is much more labour intensive than cowhide. Cordovan products age very well and develop a particularly beautiful patina over time.

Shoe construction

Cementing

Cementing is the fastest and most common method of attaching the sole of a shoe. Once the upper has been completed and shaped around the last, the sole is attached with an adhesive and no welting is used. Slip-on shoes fall under this category, as well as some rubber-soled men’s shoes, such as athletic and casual shoes.

Blake welting

Experts recognise Blake welting or Blake stitching by the soles: the shoe’s insole is sewn directly to the outsole. A special sewing machine is used for this method that stitches directly through the outsole, insole and bottom edge of the shoe shaft, connecting them without the use of a welt. As opposed to Goodyear welting, Blake-stitched shoes are assembled in fewer steps.

Main characteristics: ease of construction, sole flexibility, lightweight and a contemporary look.

Goodyear welting

Original Goodyear welting has always been associated with excellence and superior handiwork. This construction process is expensive, time consuming and requires highly skilled artisanship. It is the oldest, most labour-intensive and most durable of the three methods of construction.

Simply put, Goodyear welt construction involves a strip of leather that is sewn around the bottom edge of the shoe, and attached to both the insole and the upper to hold the shoe together. The welt can then be easily unstitched, detaching the sole without damaging the rest of the shoe – meaning the soles can be replaced more than once. The cavity created by the welt between the insole and the outer sole is filled with cork, another natural product that provides unparalleled comfort and support.

Main characteristics: water resistant, easy resoling, comfort, durability and support.

Shoe lasts

At andranno, we construct shoes using a wide variety of lasts. Lasts are solid, foot-shaped forms that provide shoemakers with a foundation on which to build a shoe. The type of last used during shoe assembly affects the overall fit of a shoe, as well as its aesthetic appearance.

Some shoe styles can be assembled using different lasts, and others only with a specific one. For instance, a pair of Goodyear welted Oxfords can be ordered using different shoe lasts, each one with its own unique characteristics.

Our different shoe lasts:

Classic elegance with a slightly square toe

Rounded toe for a traditional English look

A sleek aesthetic with a slight chisel toe

Chisel toe, narrow waist and Cuban heel
