The Franco is created utilizing our Blake construction method. Favored for decades in Italy, Blake construction allows for maximum wear while still providing the comfort of a lighter, more flexible shoe. Shoes made using Blake construction are easily resoled, extending the lifetime of the shoe.

The Franco is designed exclusively for our signature low vamp collection. The lower vamp does not come up as high on the instep, making it a comfortable shoe for men with high or low insteps. Our signature low vamp shoe is modernized when worn with tapered slacks but can also easily transition from dress to casual. A timeless shoe style that looks refined and elegant on everyone.

                        About Zelli Italia
                        Enduring style does not chase trends, and neither do you. The classic, iconic styling of a Zelli shoe is both timeless and contemporary. Fine luxury shoes and accessories are defined by details. Zelli exemplifies this ideology through thoughtful dedication to excellence in each of these areas: material, style, construction and artistry. There is a reason that the most exquisite shoes made are crafted in Italy. It is for this same reason that each Zelli shoe is cut and sewn by the hands of highly-experienced Italian artisans, ensuring your best fit. Purity and perfection of details take discipline and focus. You apply these tenets to your own life, and so should the shoes that carry you through it.

                        With these guiding standards, the Zelli brand was formed in the mid-1990s. We started with a small collection of footwear, belts and wallets in premium calfskin and fine exotic leathers. Zelli quickly became known for its luxury Caiman crocodile, Teju lizard, and ostrich products all expertly crafted in the Tuscany region of Italy and sold in the best men’s specialty stores in the US. The Zelli standards continue today along with a passion for providing incomparable customer service.
