While we’re all sneakerheads at heart, we can’t help but fall in love with a superb pair of Italian-made shoes. That’s why Aquatalia is such a standby when it comes to top-notch footwear that isn’t bearing a Swoosh or Three Stripes along the side.

But it’s more than just style that has us reaching for a pair of Aquatalia shoes; while many athletic brands boast modern tech for their trainers, Aquatalia is no slouch when it comes to keeping things cutting-edge. With the brand’s weatherproofing treatment, you can rest assured that fall squalls and spring showers are nothing to fear as far as your footwear is concerned.

The patented process begins right at the tanning process. Buttery leathers and smooth suedes are exposed—or rather, immersed—in a state-of-the-art sealant that makes sure to wrap every inch of the material in waterproofing coverage. Round two comes when the stitched seams receive a filling of liquid sealant. This allows the shoe to remain dry and inhibit liquids from penetrating into the shoe, while still allowing your foot to breathe while on-foot.

But while some treatments may affect the overall appearance of the final product, you can put those fears to rest. Aquatalia’s careful approach to its techniques still put the shoe’s visuals first and foremost. Just keep your eyes peeled for the label’s weatherproof seal as the mark of this sublime seasonal tech. While your Aquatalia shoes may repel water, salt, and stains, they’re certainly not going to block envious glances from friends and family. Just this once, blame it on your smart shoes.

Head over to Aquatalia to find your next pair of shoes for this upcoming fall season.
