This calf leather is very soft and "full grain" (tanned on top of the skin, qualitatively better). The nubuck Zecchino d'Oro is 100% Italian and has a suede surface that makes it light and velvety to the touch. It offers an excellent water resistance and durability thanks to the natural strength of the fibers of the skin.
The natural cowhide used to make shoes Zecchino d'Oro is one of the finest and comes exclusively from a careful selection of the main Italian tanneries. The characteristics of the calf are unique softness, elasticity and resistance: for this reason Zecchino d'Oro’s children's shoes always guarantee ideal comfort.
Widely used in the "first steps" articles and in the models of the desert boots for its extreme softness and elasticity, the crust is perfectly adapted to the shape of the foot. It is obtained from bovine hides of quality on which the split is performed, which consists in dividing the skin in two or more layers: the crust is precisely constituted by the lower layer of this processing.
Zecchino d'Oro’s shoes would not be the same without a touch of glamour! We use only selected paints and obtained from the processing of Italian leather, calfskin of great natural strength and brightness. Synthetic materials are banned, because our goal is always to devote the bulk of wealth to children's feet.
