The Argento way
Once we receive your order, we start its production and send it to you in 4 days!
We have developed an efficient on-demand production system that is more responsible to you and the planet. You receive the product you want without intermediaries, you pay the correct price for them and you minimize the impact on the planet (did you know that the retail industry is one of the biggest polluters globally?) We prefer to produce on demand because the traditional scheme generates excesses in production, transportation and storage. All these extra costs are deferred only in the units sold and for this reason they are always paid by the final consumer.
Our artisans are trained by Italian senior masters, they transfer to us the knowledge that they have developed for generations. We mix the best traditional techniques with the latest technology to make not only the best shoes, but also the most comfortable!
Each sheet of leather of Italian or Argentine origin is selected by our specialized master, thus guaranteeing a unique look and superior quality. The right leather makes the shoe look great from day one and actually takes character over time, making it a unique piece that will always look great.
We take the selection of each material seriously. In addition to leather, it is important to select the correct thread to assemble the pieces, the foams for a maximum comfort insole, the interlining materials that will give consistency and improve old age. A shoe is only as good as its weakest piece, which is why all of our pieces are exceptional.
Our shoes are lined in magenta Vachetta leather, A&B's flagship color. This leather is characterized by its softness, resistance and for allowing the feet to be at the correct temperature due to its high breathing capacity. This leather is vegetable dyed, so it does not use toxic substances that could mistreat the planet and reduces the risk of fungus or foot allergies.
