A.S.98 has carved out a name for themselves for both the quality and conditioning of their leather, as well as the creative details they add to their footwear. Born in the 1980's, they are still designed and made in Verona, Italy. The top quality, Italian leathers are vegetable dyed and distressed through an evolutionary process, which gives their leather the weathered, vintage look that makes it so distinctive to A.S.98. Unique, high quality footwear. Warning: you will get noticed!
