Mario Minardi Hand Painted Leather Shoes Patina


Since its inception in 1982, the brand continuously develops its design portfolio by fine-tuning its classic variations to suit the footwear needs of modern men.

One of its latest collections is called the patina series as it uses hand-painted leather to emulate natural patina. This way, the wearer doesn’t have to wait for the leather to develop its own “aged” look. Just take a glance at these ankle boots that cone in three distinctive shades.

Beyond the exquisite leatherwork, the brand has also elevated these boots with two smaller buckles and subtle brogue detailing.
