FROM VENICE TO THE WORLD
Along the River Brenta, among villas, frescoes and beautiful gardens, comes the Riviera del Brenta: an area chosen by the wealthy Venetian patricians as an ideal holiday resort.
The perpetuation of this tradition born in the ‘600, when these Venetian lords came here to get their shoes crafted, thanks to already well known elegance and style, made the Riviera del Brenta to become the excellence of luxury footwear worldwide.
Quality, accuracy, refinement, attention and care in the manufacturing process resulting from the craftsman character of most of companies that have made big brands which chose shoe factories of the Brenta River for the production of footwear of the most exclusive brands.
Founded in 2014 by the two brothers Alberto and Nicola Franceschi, inspired by R. L. Stevenson’s novel “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde”.
Leitmotif of HIDE & JACK collections is a contemporary and playful reinterpretation of the concept of dualism to emphasize that each style of dressing can hide a double personality. Sneakers with minimal lines, show their stronger side through the colored mix of soles and uppers.
It all started as an inspiration: “to create a shoe that could transform its appearance through the application on the upper of a variety of removable covers.”
Thus the first HIDE & JACK collection was born, the “0 Model”, it consists of a single line, two colors, two soles and 52 covers to 208 combinations.
