    Norman Vilalta

    Brown Patinated Pebble Grain Leather Derby Shoe




    The story

    The mastermind behind Norman Vilalta worked as a lawyer before changing professions and training as a shoemaker in Florence – and we at The Rake are glad he did. After honing the incredibly specialised techniques, the Argentinian national founded his business, initially specialising in bespoke before adding ready-to-wear to the brand's offering. Innovative by nature, Vilalta takes classic styles – such as a Derby or Chelsea boot – and puts a spin on them, playing with texture, design or thickness of the sole, while maintaining an unwavering level of comfort and durability.
