Conceived in 1968 by Nazzareno Di Rosa, Italian footwear brand Officine Creative is now directed by a “collective of passionate craftspeople” who offer a distinct take on classic menswear staples with their selection of worn-in footwear and accessories made from high quality Italian leathers. Each shoe is handcrafted in various textures ranging from brushed suede or washed nubuck to grained or burnished leather, each finish an imprint of its artisanal craftsmanship. Popular Chelsea or lace-up boot styles are outfitted with a refined, distressed look often host to unique patent contrasts or basketweave and perforated textures. Luxe leather backpacks or grained leather totes are lined with rich suede and equipped with antiqued hardware for an aged, yet enlightened aesthetic. The brand is famous for its sturdy brogues and slouchy work boots, yet all of Officine Creative’s pieces fuse elements of traditional craftsmanship with a modern aesthetic to produce styles that both endure and celebrate the test of time.
