Five-eyelet Oxford shoes in calfskin on a leather sole.

Uniquely crafted with the prestigious Tramezza construction, a traditional technique perfected by Salvatore Ferragamo to create shoes which offer superior comfort and exquisite design.

Immediately after the war, Salvatore invented techniques to use nylon or synthetic raffia and, for evening shoes, intricate embroidery in rhinestones and glass beads, creating one-of-a-kind uppers.
