Only through wearing our
shoes one can truly appreciate
our dedication to quality


The “last” is the essential soul of our shoes, a wooden shape onto which our fine leathers are moulded. Our selection of classic fitting lasts is the result of a continuous research into our heritage archives.


The leathers for our Oak Bark Soles undergo a twelve-month natural tanning process in water, oak and bark, providing an exceptional durability. Our artisans then carefully craft unique patina designs, along with distinctive nail-hammered patterns, delivering a pure expression of the BV philosophy since 1856.
