For handsome handmade riding boots that can be worn every day, look no further than Alberto Fasciani. His factory in the Marche region of Italy unifies local, time-honored traditions with contemporary worldly tastes, resulting in an incredibly successful line of riding boots for modern gentlemen. The ancient, practical purpose of riding boots is transmuted to a stunning yet refined modern style.

Distinctive and intriguing, Fasciani's calfskin riding boots also feature fine durability, making them suitable for all sporting activities and outdoor excursions as well as leisure occasions. Fasciani has also recently added beautiful handmade ankle boots to his line, made exclusively for Madaboutown. Both ankle boots and riding boots feature decorated uppers, resistant leather soles, and back zippers, and they are designed to naturally conform to a man's foot.

At Madaboutown, you can even find traditional "Scarpett" Italian handmade shoes. Scarpett, or little shoes, offer the comfort of socks, yet are suitable for outdoor wear. Scarpett originated when skilled shoemakers in the past observed how Italian farmers made strong yet comfortable cotton shoes to keep their feet dry and fresh as they worked. Scarpett are now quite fashionable for beach wear, long walks, even summer parties in the evening. However, only the designer Creazioni Fratta offers Scarpett that are true to tradition, made in the small Italian town of San Daniele del Friuli in strong, handmade cotton without glue or other chemicals.
