Buttero Green Pinked Low Top Sneaker

I’ve never been a fan of canvas (at least for shoes), they take a heck a lot of effort to maintain. White canvas trainers get scuffed grey, brown and black, black canvas trainers get scuffed white and grey- it’s almost as if Fate had never intended canvas or the owners of canvas trainers to have a moment’s rest. Thankfully Buttero makes leather casual shoes that take all the effort out of keeping your trainers clean (it helps that they come in great contrasting colours too).

Buttero Green Pinked Low Top Sneaker

Made in Italy from 100% leather, Buttero has given this pair pinking detailing seen throughout the cuff collar tab, heel counter, eyerow and toe cap. White stitched (100%) rubber soles with textured foxing, leather cushioned insoles, reinforced heel and toe box complete the look for these low top sneakers. The rich green color with an uneven tone finish and the hand stitch detail make these really special,the contrasting tan leather laces really give it oomph.


Buttero Preppy Sand Hole Cut Low Top Sneaker

Grained suede sand colored sneaker with hole cuts on the sides and heel collar. New recycled marble finish gum sole, which is stitched and boasts the usual textured foxing. Leather cushioned insoles and reinforced heel on the inside completed with outer hand stitched trimmings.

Buttero Twisted Cut Out Low Top Sneaker

Working their well known low top sneaker and taking it to a higher level, the Buttero boys have created a striking effect on this version featuring a twisted cut out on the sides. Stitched gum soles with textured foxing, leather cushioned insoles, reinforced heel and sleek toe box with hand stitch finish. Amazing dark tan color upper with perfect greyish dark brown leather laces.

Buttero Contrast Toe Off White Low Top Sneaker (my favourite)

The natural tan color used on the toe box and heel tab, contrasts beautifully with the off white tone of the leather uppers. The new marble finish recycled rubber sole is stitched and boasts the usual textured foxing. Leather cushioned insoles and reinforced heel on the inside zested by outer hand stitched trimmings.

All made from the highest grade vegetable tanned leather you can be sure these will make a solid investment (at least 230 Euro per pair) that ages well. They’re made┬ábig, so order one size down. All available from Por Vocacao.
