Quality is something serious.

The natural shape has a new style.

The distinguishing features of all the Benvado footwear are the natural shape, the correct height of the wedge or heel and the anatomic foot bedding. Besides, thanks to many other particular elements, the Benvado footwear models are not just beautiful but extremely comfortable as well. 

Form and Function

Natural shape

Natural shape. Maximum well-being.
In order to give toes and muscles room to move and invigorate the ligaments in your foot, we use a natural foot shaped last with a straight big toe position.

Rubber soles

High quality rubber soles.
The majority of Benvado shoe soles are made of rubber, a material of natural origin that is very tough and durable. Hence the soles are flexible, comfortable and robust.
Many of the shoes in the Benvado collection also have an unusual sole design, created with great passion for detail.

Water repellent

Greased water repellent nubuck.
Some shoes have been created in fine nubuck, tanned and processed in Italy with the utmost care. According to craftsmen's tradition, it is gently polished so that it takes on a typical velvety appearance on the surface. This nubuck is not waterproof, but it is water resistant owing to its enhancement with oils.
It should be cleaned with a special nubuck brush or a damp sponge and, once dry, buffed up to restore its original appearance. Lastly, impregnating it with a specific spray for nubuck is advised.

Oiled suede

Very soft greased calf suede.
Some shoes have been created in fine calfskin suede, tanned with the utmost care in Italy and treated on the surface with top quality oils according to craftsmen's tradition. They are therefore soft and dirt-resistant. The surface treatment means that differences in colour are possible, sometimes even in the same pair: This is not a defect but a demonstration of the natural origin of the material and the great value of the product.
This kind of leather must be cleaned with care, using a soft-bristle brush. In the case of stains use products specifically for suede.

Ideal wedge height

Ideal wedge height. Correct body weight distribution.
Lower heels and ideal wedge height enable the correct distribution of body weight between your forefoot and rear foot.

Anatomic foot bedding

Anatomic foot bedding. Optimum support.
The anatomic foot bedding, which is removable in our closed shoe range, supports the longitudinal and transverse arches to lighten the impact on your foot with every step.

Removable foot bedding

Removable foot bedding: a feature of high quality shoes.
All Benvado closed shoes have removable anatomical foot bedding. This important feature, typical of high quality shoes, provides a series of advantages, for example the option to clean the shoes and leave them to air overnight.
Those who use orthopaedic foot beddings can simply replace the foot beddings included in the shoes with their own orthopaedic ones. On the other hand, those who do not want to part with their favourite shoes can prolong their useful lives considerably by inserting new foot beddings.

Waxed leather

Waxed calfskin with a distinctive surface.
Some shoes have been created in fine calfskin suede, tanned with the utmost care in Italy and waxed on the surface according to craftsmen's tradition. Hence it is as soft as suede and yet smooth and dirt-repellent like nappa leather. The surface treatment means that differences in colour are possible, sometimes even in the same pair: This is not a defect but a demonstration of the natural origin of the material and the great value of the product.
This kind of leather must be cleaned with care, using a soft-bristle brush and a slightly damp sponge.

Drummed leather

Very soft drummed calfskin.
Some shoes have been created in fine calfskin, tanned with the utmost care in Italy and drummed according craftsmen's tradition. The mechanical processing in the tanning drum makes the leather extremely soft, giving it a surface structure with a very natural appearance that is durable and particularly pleasant to the touch.
Drummed leather may be cleaned using quality products that are also suitable for traditional smooth leather.

Special finishing

Handmade finishing for a unique and particular look.
Some shoes take on a truly unique and special appearance owing to a special finish, applied by hand as the last phase of the manufacturing process according to the indications of our designers. After final quality control, the shoes are packaged and sent to the stores. With the finishing process, differences in colour are possible, even between shoes in the same pair: This is not a defect but a demonstration of the craftsmanship and the great value of the product.

Loden lining

Warm 100% natural wool loden lining.
In certain models the warm lining and the surface of the removable foot bedding are made with high quality Loden fabric (100% wool). Loden is a natural material derived from woven wool that is subsequently brushed up on the surface and then shrunk; these steps give Loden excellent heat insulation, as well as a soft surface and fine appearance and prevent pilling (formation of little balls typical of wool).
Loden should not be washed with hot water in order to avoid the material becoming deformed.

Goat suede

The fine suede goatskin is particularly light and soft.
Some of the shoes have been created in ultra-soft goat suede with its typical velvety surface. It is particularly light and pleasant to the touch and is tanned in Italy with the utmost care.
This kind of leather must be cleaned with care, only dry, using a soft-bristle brush.

Refined leather

Meticulously finished skin gives Italian craftsmanship a modern look.
Some shoes have been created in incredibly soft leather, which envelops the foot like a glove, tanned with the utmost care and skillfully processed in Italy according to craftsmen's tradition. Resulting from this process are, for example, laminated leathers with an elegant shiny appearance and embossed and printed leathers.
This kind of leather must be cleaned with care, only dry, using a soft-bristle brush.

Perfect fit

Customisation for an excellent fit.
The special design of this sandals is the long strap which wraps over the instep from the toes and is fastened at the heel with a Velcro closure. For very narrow feet this strap can be a little longer than necessary at the heel. Simply cut it off on the seams provided (on the outside!). We recommend that you let a specialized shoe retailer shorten the strap for you.
The sandals can also be individually adjusted in the area of the front foot: The length can be adjusted here optimally to fit your foot with the Velcro fastener.

Printed velour leather

Printed velour, very delicate. 
Do not expose to direct heat source and avoid prolonged contact with water.

Mirrored calfskin

Mirror metallic calfskin to be treated with special care. 
Any marks are due to normal wear.

Polished calfskin

Refined calfskin, waxed and polished.
Folds on the surface may occur due to use.

Style

100% Italian design

DESIGNED IN BOLZANO/BOZEN

Benvado draws on two cultures, both master at their craft. Designers from Italian and German background join forces to create our range of Benvado shoes, with a shared passion for elegant design and natural form and function.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN MONTEBELLUNA

In the Italian centre for shoe manufacture, our designers' ideas are implemented with great attention to detail. Since no two feet are identical, the prototypes are first of all thoroughly tested for comfort and functionality by women with differing feet and requirements.

Production

First-class workmanship is just as important as keeping to our high quality standards. From cutting and stitching to final assembly and finishing - every part and every detail of a Benvado shoe is "Made in Europe".
