2. Type of Materials
Porselli offers not only a wide range of colors but also different types of material suitable for each model of its line.
In this way you will find the perfect match with your outfit. Choosing the type of lining of the shoe is very important to determine the final effect of your look. In fact, it does not only affect the fit of the shoe, but also the sensation of touch and the visual result as a whole. Precisely for this reason Porselli decided to focus only on three different types of leather and on a fabric that will never go out of style:
Nappa: a soft leather, whose grain is simply left to natural without the color covering it completely. Very resistant to Suede, this type of leather tends to maintain its original shape.
Special type of Nappa with Metallic Effect: soft Nappa finished with a metallic color that looks bright and does not completely cover the grain of the soft leather giving it a refined and overwhelming touch in a play of light and color that will leave you breathless.
Special type of Nappa with Glossy Effect: Nappa whose grain is completely covered by color and a glossy finish. This makes the skin completely smooth to the touch and uniform to the eye. This type of coating is very resistant and expresses elegance at first sight.
Suede: delicate leather with a velvety touch and absence of visible grain. This material is perfect for those seeking comfort and elegance in one solution.
Being a softer and more delicate type of leather, compared to a Nappa (or one with a metallic / shiny effect), it will tend to yield more.
Of this type there is also the Suede with leopard print, a wonderful combination of class and trend.
Denim: the only Porselli shoes lining option that does not come from the leather world. Very soft, with a casual look, Denim is a material that perfectly matches any type of outfit.
Please note that the Porselli company does not produce half sizes but thanks to the practical lace inside the finish you can tighten your shoes making their fit perfect for you.
When you buy a Porselli shoe, to determine the fit most appropriate to your foot you must take into consideration the material with which it was created.
We suggest, for those who wear a half size, to choose the largest size for a Nappa and the smaller size for a Suede.
NOTE: the final cost of the item changes from model to model based on the type of material used for the construction.
Each shoe model can be produced with every material listed above.
