Martiniano Lopez Crozet, the designer behind Argentinian hand made shoe line Martiniano, is half of Los Super Elegantes, a collaborative performance art duo that mixed music, theater and fashion. Martiniano creates minimalist shoes inspired by traditional Argentinian loafers and form-fitting dancing slippers. Using time-honored techniques and quality materials each pair is cut, sewn and crafted by Buenos Aires artisans from fine kid leather so soft that the shoe’s shape is defined by the natural curve of your feet.
