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 Démesures version of the Alessandro is one of the oldest versions of the model. First introduced in 2006, the Alessandro Démesure fits all feet. It bears the distinct, sophisticated details inspired by Berluti’s Bespoke offer: coloured linings and shoetrees, patinated soles and hand-wrought “Berluti” ankle motifs. An icon of the Maison.
