OLIVER CABELL WORKSHOPS & FACTORIES IN ITALY
LEATHER TANNERY (EST. 1954) - VICENZA, ITALY
Leather is the backbone of Oliver Cabell (O.C) footwear, and they researched over 70 tanneries before finding the perfect partner for their sneakers. Crafting leather since 1954, skins from this tannery has been sought after by major luxury brands for generations due to its high-end finish and natural feel. Producing exclusively full-grain leather (i.e. the best around), the tannery has won international awards around quality, ethical, and environmental practice. O.C were happy to learn that the factory owners are big supporters of small, family farms as it allows them to track exactly where their hides come from. The result: a premium full-grain leather that matures beautifully over time.
MARGOM (EST. 1952) - LE MARCHE, ITALY
The simplest shapes often require the most detail. To create the timeless, low profile look O.C wanted for the sole of this sneaker, they needed a partner that could craft outsoles the old way, yet marry it with the latest technology. Their initial attempts to work with Margom were difficult due to their lower volume. However, after some persistence and a few introductions we forged a partnership. Founded in 1952 with just two machines and five employees, Margom has become the premier provider for luxury rubber outsoles. Its lightweight design is longer lasting and resistant to splitting and abrasion, and it uses a Shore 70A rubber durometer rating for maximum comfort and longevity. The result: a comfortable outsole that stands the test of time.
THE SHOEMAKER WORKSHOP (EST. 1998) - EL MARCHE, ITALY
When O.C set out to make their first shoe, they knew they wanted quality that would stand the test of time. They interviewed over 40 footwear factories throughout Europe but none met the quality and ethical standards they were looking for. O.C then met Diego, who manages production for a few high-end brands and agreed to help out. He introduced O.C to the owner of this factory, Pedro, who has been producing for a handful of small luxury brands for generations. Each pair takes days to complete, as every step is done by hand. In order to execute our designs perfectly, O.C collaborate closely with Pedro and his team through the entire process.
