Since its humble beginnings in the 1950s in Milan, footwear manufacturer Fratelli Rossetti has come a long way. They have established themselves as one of premier Italian fashion brands in the world with a loyal following. Now on its 60th year and still owned and run by Rossetti family, the company year in and year out release top quality fashionable shoes for both men and women. This summer’s collections boasts beautiful designs in vibrant colors and materials.
For handsome gentlemen of the world, let’s have a look at slip-on shoes and loafers from Fratelli Rossetti. They are stylish and matches perfectly with jeans and trousers alike for almost any occasion. Getting on a plane for a trip abroad with all the security checks at airports these days? Slip-ons are the perfect shoe for air travel. They are equally at ease if the occasion demands a bit more dressing up as some of them pairs well with formal attire. Below are five of my favorite Fratelli Rossetti slip-on shoes from their Summer 2015 collection.
Summer Brera loafer’s woven design reminds me of Bottega Veneta’s handbags and accessories. Made from soft woven calfskin, Brera is a stylish loafer offered in China Blue and Chestnut Brown. It comes with a special treatment applied by Rossetti’s craftsmen to ensure each model stays unique and exclusive. Every part of the shoe including the welt, sole edge and sole are made in same color to match the upper.
If it wasn’t for tassels, this numbered loafer from the “Estate” line would have been an extremely plain shoe to wear albeit extremely comfortable. Rossetti describes this as a “destructured and unlined” loafer and it shows. Its soft natural grain calfskin leather is light and flexible to bring comfort during hot summer days. The loafer has a logoed trim on the inside and a leather sole. Available in colors Tan and Turquoise.
Another one of Rossetti’s destructured and unlined loafers, the 51801 is offered in two different materials in 4 colors. The soft natural grain calfskin leather version is available in colors Ebony and Navy Blue. The soft suede version comes in colors Dark Blue and Dove Gray. Both leather and suede versions are light and flexible. Loafers feature logoed trim on the inside and leather sole.
A slip-on shoe from the “Estate” line, available in colors Turquois (soft natural grain leather) and Violet Blue (soft suede). This stylish summer shoe also feature logoed trim and leather sole.
This slip-on is for casual dressing in every sense of the word, jeans are the dress of choice for this shoe. This too is offered in multiple colors – Lead Gray, Dark Blue and Brown. Made of a mixture of soft suede with calfskin trim, it features a crocodile-embossed effect. Also has a sole made of colored, ultra-light customized rubber and a detachable sole.
