Mens Chelsea Boot Velour
The Italian among the Chelseas
A classic Chelsea boot with its over-ankle shape and side rubber inserts that give the shoe elasticity and comfort. Even after hours of wear, it sits comfortably on the foot. For the upper, Astorflex uses a vegetable-tanned cow suede that has been waxed and oiled. The surface treatment gives the boot a distinctive "used look". The lining and insole are made of supple vegetable-tanned calfskin, which increases comfort and allows the foot to breathe. The full-length crepe sole made of natural rubber cushions the step and ensures a secure footing. A quality feature of Astorflex is the so-called "ideal seam" along the edge of the sole, which makes the shoe flexible and durable.
Astorflex. La scarpa buona
The beginnings of Astorflex date back to the 19th century. After the First World War, the descendants of the shoemaking family founded the company "Fratelli Travenzoli" in Castel d'Ario, a small shoemaking town in the province of Mantua (Lombardy). From then on, they specialized in the production of shoes using the "ideal method", in which a visible seam joins the upper to the insole, making the shoes particularly flexible, durable and long-lasting. Today, the fortunes of Astorflex are in the hands of Fabio Travenzoli, who has consistently focused the entire production on sustainability. This is evidenced not least by the use of ecological materials. First-class Italian leather is used for the upper shoe, especially from master tanneries in Tuscany. The lining and insoles are made of soft calf leather, vegetable-tanned in a decoction of oak bark and mimosa. The outsoles are made primarily of natural rubber, and only water-based adhesives are used. At Astorflex, one has just completely dedicated to the "good shoe", as already promised by the addition "La scarpa buona" in the logo of the shoe manufactory.
