Our aesthetics comfort

The composition of the sole is fundamental for every ortopedic and normal shoe as it guarantees substain, comfort and well- being. All the rubbers produced in the Emanuela firma are designed to guarantee optimal reliability and elasticity.

The everlasting quality

From “classic” models to the latest collections, every shoe is designed  to give aesthetics, optimal comfort, and maximum resistance  through time. A careful attention to the selection of european raw materials has made this project possible. The new advanced technologies, the selection of the best raw materials and the artisanal excellence guarantee an high quality and performance from the first time.

Planet sustainability

From the beginning Emanuela has chosen susteainable materials to prevent our environment, as result the sole of the shoes is entirely produced using natural cauciù from sustainable plantations. Moreover, while producing rubber to be vulcanized, wastes are recycled to create new soles. Using the technique of vulcanisation, the natural rubber sole and the upper shoe are attached without using glues and solvents.
