In 1895, Alessandro Berluti, a trained cabinetmaker and a lover of elegant forms, devised the famous lace-up shoe. Every Berluti generation since has reinterpreted this invention, and the shoe has changed imperceptibly over the years. The lace-up shoe, an historic and emblematic model made from a single piece of leather, without any visible seam, has come to symbolise Maison Berluti and is the purest expression of its uncompromising style. The Alessandro “Galet” takes its name from the last on which it was developed. Soft and supple, the shape of the Galet perfectly complements the natural form of the foot and respects its individual character: the foot feels utterly at home and naturally comfortable, like a pebble cupped in the palm of the hand.
