The history of Friulan shoes
Manufacturing from ancient history, which dates back to the early nineteenth century, the Friulian shoe was, at the time, handmade at home with recycled materials, and was worn mainly on holidays.
Features og UN/PAIR's Friulan shoes
Among its fundamental characteristics that we jealously wanted to preserve in our collection of Friulian UNPAIR shoes, is the fact that it does not use glue for its realization but scrupulously maintains the façon of the past.
In our UN/PAIR's Friulian shoes, the typical “T” seam - which unites the upper and midsole - is made entirely by hand.
In addition the sole, the internal heel reinforcement and theinsole of the UNPAIR Friulian shoes are not glued, but always sewn, so as to ensure comfort and maintain the tradition of the original Friulian shoe.
UN/PAIR's Friulan shoes: artisan and unique
From the initial designs of the UNPAIR Friulian shoes to the various technical meetings with our craftsman
, we have created a collection that mixes the aesthetic aspect of a slipper, the construction of the friulane, and a detail borrowed from the world of sneaker.
The back loop with logo is in fact the "sporty" element that we could not give up.
The materials of UN/PAIR's Friulan shoes
The material of the UPPER of the UN/PAIR's Friulian shoes is in cotton denim, developed in threedifferent colors: light blue, gray and ivory.
The cotton denim of our Friulian was chosen to enhance and consecratethe unisex soul of which UNPAIR are very proud.
For the LINING, instead of the classic plain-colored panamino, in the UN/PAIR's Friulan shoes we have inserted a cheerful striped white and red cotton, a reference to the typical fabrics of men's shirts.
The materials of the UNPAIR Friulian are made especially for us by important Italian suppliers and have been designed to give our footwear greater support and thickness, while not giving up on softness.
Mix with elegance
The UNPAIR Friulian shoes are also distinguished by an upper enriched with a black velvet toe-cap.
Il toe-cap is in fact one of the distinctive features of UNPAIR's Friulan shoes: it is the "trait d'union" that binds all the variants, and which allows you to unmatch your trio while always maintaining a linearity and consistency of taste and style for any pairing you decide to make.
