3/ Development

Our product team leverages decades of expertise and top-shelf material suppliers to develop products of equivalent or better quality and design than luxury brands.


4/ Payments

We built Italic with an explicit mission of providing manufacturers a way earn higher margins than their traditional clients while also saving our customers 50-80% by removing the brand markups.

Chrome-free leather made with Zeology.

Chrome-free leather is leather that has been sustainably manufactured with natural materials instead of the harmful metals used in traditional tanning. Zeology takes this eco-friendly process to the next level with less pollution, cleaner waste streams, and improved biodegradability. It also delivers superior durability and brightness not found in other chrome-free leather products.

 

Italic is excited to offer the very first Zeology leather sneakers in the U.S.

Our most popular leather sneak grows up.

We’re bringing everyone’s favorite minimalist leather sneaker to the next level. This lightweight, comfortable hi-top is made from a unique, high-quality leather composition that optimizes grain tightness and heat-resistance. Using tannery-specific Zeology technology, our leather is treated sustainably without compromising on overall durability.
