A fabric label is stitched inside every Failli 1979 Tuscany shoe. This can be customised with the owner's name and the date of purchase.

Tassels and Barrels

The suede tassels elegantly finish the laces on each Failli 1979 Tuscany shoe, and they are secured by octagonal steel barrels with screw engravings.


The octagonal shape is inspired by a watch case, with the same meticulous workmanship. The steel eyelets consist of two individual parts that screw together via a thread, have elegant screw-shaped engravings.
