Jared Acquaro X Preventi Shoe Collaboration

The Jared Acquaro X Preventi shoe collaboration was something in the making for over 7 years, which is the time I have spent in the Menswear industry.

I wanted to create a shoe men would love and want to wear all the time for any occasion, I think the Preventi Acquaro ticks all the boxes! ~ Jared Acquaro

Through those 7 years, I have been building and creating collections/campaigns for many other brands.

So when I sat down with Anthony (one owner of 124 shoes) and Sauro (Preventi International Rep), the idea was to show my personality within a shoe design.

The shoe itself is extremely versatile, so there is a balance between formal and casual. From the U-tip toe to the large broguing details, every detail is purposeful to create this balance.

100% handmade in Italy from Vitello (Buffalo) leather, it is washed and tumbled to create flexibility, durability and character.

Instead of cotton, boar hair is used in the construction to increase the strength or every stitch, and the Goodyear welting for the sole.

The upper leather is double-dip dyed in a dark chocolate to create a beautiful patina with age and wear, and a beautiful warm contrasting forest green sock lining.

*Sizes do run big, so I suggest downsizing, for example, I am a US9/UK8/42 and I wear a size 41.*
