Some shoes by Nico Nerini are made by using the traditional Goodyear Welted construction synonymous with quality handmade shoes. This technique, invented by the American Charles Goodyear Jr, has been mastered for over 100 years by the craftsmen and women at the factory in Northampton, England.
The term “Wing Tip” refers to the shape of the cap toe that looks like wings stretching across the front of the shoe. Most wing tips are Derby shoes decorated with brogue leather. While most wing tips are solid in colour (mostly black or brown), two-toned date back to the 1920s. Today two-toned wingtips are once again quite popular and perfect for a smart-casual dress.
