Artisanal shoe designer Lincoln has an approach to his craft that high-heel wearing women might be happy to learn. For him, comfort is just as important as beauty, if not more so. And he does not allow the illusion of perfection the possibility of robbing his styles of any natural, artisanal beauty.
There’s also the fact that everything is completely handmade in Italy. All of the stitching, cutting, dyeing, and “finishing” are done by hand. He embraces the uneven natural lines that come from handcrafting and is obsessed with allowing each style to take their “natural” form as they are being constructed.
Though he typically works with, and has a love for, exotic skins, Lincoln has taken to experimenting with silicone fabric.
