Sometimes the simplest designs are the most sophisticated, and the Portofino in Birch is a testament to that. Strobel-constructed for superior flexibility, it’s handcrafted from Italian suede and unlined to give it a weightless, breathable feel. The sole is custom-developed with FSC®-certified and recycled rubber—so it’s sustainable and durable.
