Men’s Leather Chukka
Comfortable. Chukka style shoe.
Stylistically, this is a chukka boot, a comfortable, ankle-high shoe with two pairs of eyelets and a distinctive crepe sole that was originally worn by polo players during breaks between sections of play (the "chukkas") to relax their feet. From there, it found its way into everyday wardrobes. It first became popular as a casual shoe in the 1940s, and its popularity continues to this day - though it is now worn as much with jeans as it is with a suit. Punto Pigro uses a smooth cowhide leather upper for this model, while the lining is a soft calfskin. The full-length crepe sole makes for comfortable walking (and standing).
Punto Pigro. Shoes from the Marche Region.
Montegranaro in the Marche region, an important location for Italian shoe manufacturing, is home to the relatively young Punto Pigro label. Founded in 2000, it took the traditional footwear craft of the Secchiaris (their family had been active in the industry since 1975) and added new ideas and influences. For example, part of Punto Pigro’s collection features a special seam that goes back to the moccasins of the native inhabitants of North America. What’s more, the brand focuses on high-quality leathers, traditional handicrafts and a casual style in the design of its models.
