Italian Development Trip | David Mawdsley

The homie, David Mawdsley has been busy these past few weeks. Having just recently been on a footwear development trip in Portugal, he’s just this past week also found his way over to Italy for some further development. Again, David’s brought us some beautifully curated imagery from his trip.
From incredibly ornate footwear manufacturing machinery, to luxe leathers and antiquated lasts, you can get a glimpse into the life of a footwear designer/developer on the road out in Italy, below.
