Where Italian style meets Spanish tradition
Viscata women like the finest things in life. They are free spirits. They have a sense of adventure. They are confident and they carry their style on the outside. But they’re also dreamers who adapt and change to make the most of their opportunities. Last year, we introduced our Essenza Collection of premium hand made shoes for the cooler months. And Viscata women loved our autumn shoes so much that they asked for more. We listened to their feedback and we went back to the drawing board to make this year’s Essenza Collection even better. And with the new fall colors and styles from Pantone featuring the trendiest tones for the autumn, we think you’re going to love them.
Changing styles and changing seasons
It’s interesting how our minds adapt to the seasons. Gone is the sound of waves lapping against a sandy shore and the gentle breezes of summer. Now that Autumn’s here, those crashing waves have been replaced with the sound of crunchy leaves under foot. The warmth of the sun is now the glow of a roaring log fire. And those pina coladas will be replaced with hot spiced wine. And to make it all even better, we’re bringing back Essenza for all your fall fashion needs and with all the improvements you asked for. So, what are the improvements in Viscata’s Essenza Collection?
Better than ever
Here are some of the things we've improved about the Essenza Collection since it first appeared last year. We've added soft cushioning to the heels for extra comfort. We've introduced foamized leather inners to make you feel like you're walking on clouds. Our craftsmen and women have applied a new turned stitching technique to prevent uncomfortable chafing. We've strengthened the forefoot with a reinforced insole for a more satisfying walking experience. And finally (since our customers come in all sizes) we've made the sides more flexible so that these shoes can easily adapt to your foot, whatever your shape.
The result is a stunning collection of high quality handmade shoes designed to keep you looking stylish and comfortable during those cozy autumn months.
Viscata has launched Essenza 2024, inspired by the beautiful fashion cities of Italy and featuring our favorite fall styles. And now we've made our fall collection better than ever. We’ve listened to what you said and packed these beautiful shoes full of premium features including the softest suede and leather sourced to LWG standards. With our new collection on sale now with its Italian twist, many people are asking is the Essenza Collection still handmade in Spain? And the answer is a resounding yes. It’s the place where Spanish heritage and Italian style meet for the best of both worlds.
Step out in style
When Italian style meets Spanish heritage, something special is going to happen. It's clear from the amazing reaction to Viscata’s first ever fall collection last year, that our customers love these beautifully designed and crafted artisan shoes, handmade by Spanish artisans and inspired by the romance of Italy. And the Essenza Collection features all your favorite materials from LWG certified leather shoes made from the finest Italian leather to the softest suede shoes. The new collection features a variety of women’s shoes and espadrilles including women’s business shoes with closed toe wedges, leather flats, suede flats, leather wedges, suede wedges, leather low block heels, suede low block heels, leather slip on and suede slip on shoes are all featured in this elegant selection of comfortable Spanish handmade leather shoes, handmade suede shoes and fall espadrilles.
