Italy By Way of Indonesia: Mario Minardi’s Handpainted Shoes

PATINA PAINT. Mario Minardi is an Indonesian shoe brand that walks the fine line between classic and contemporary


Mario Minardi - Handpainted Series-10


For its newest collection, the brand experiments further with its signature material, leather, by applying handpainted patina, creating one-of-a-kind creations.

One example is the Maxi longwing derby shoes, which are constructed using Norvegese welt and completed with genuine Mexico leather soles with Vibram rubber. The final appearance is further elevated with contrasting laces that complement the shape of the casual shoes.

A particularly stylish way to wear these shoes is with rolled denim trousers or chinos to let the shoes stand out.
