|Italian shoe makers Corvari.|
I am in Italy at the moment, taking my holidays late this year, enjoying a bit of autumn sun on the Ligurian coast. I am here with my wife and two young boys, so it's not quite as relaxing as it may sound, with the kids not really having developed an understanding for the joy of relaxation yet. It is very enjoyable nonetheless, but not too much time for posting on the blog. Anyway, this post is not going to be about my vacation.
I have a tendency to buy shoes when I travelling and this time proved to be no different. In the town of Alassio, I found a small shop with no more than a dozen different pairs of shoes for sale. One of these caught my eye, however, and I had to have them. This time it was a pair of handmade boots from Corvari.

A little thing like the manually personalised insole is something I find very satisfying and I have great appreciation for. I think details like that show that they take pride in the shoes they make and that is what makes a great product.
