​Hassia Piacenza

Apr 3rd 2019

The carefree daily companion to give your wardrobe the extra style mileage it needs.

Founded in Germany, Hassia has been dedicated to designing fashion-forward footwear for the modern woman with a strong focus on comfort and premium quality since 1884. Contemporary embellishments, cutting-edge fabrications, and exciting color combinations come together in time-honored, supportive silhouettes to give even the most discerning fashionista exactly what she needs to keep her style rotation fresh. Always on trend, Hassia has introduced an all-new wedge loafer into their collection: the Piacenza. Sport meets femininity in this everyday slip-on with slight heel elevation and athletic-inspired elements. The construction boasts few seams and an innovative metatarsal underfoot pad to create a lightweight, comfy environment that doesn’t irritate vulnerable zones, promoting foot health suitable for all-day wear.

Priced at just $285, the Piacenza arrives in two stylish colorways, a neutral ocean blue and fiery red. Reinforced tonal stitching and patent leather counter trim add subtle distinction to the minimalism of the ocean version. while the red is outfitted in a stretchy textile flaunting a hexagonal texture. Both styles are lined in supple nappa leather for cushioning, sitting atop a flexible two-tone rubber sole with a single-wrapped contrast stripe and serrated tread for steady grip. Round toes allow the forefoot to flex naturally during each stage of the gait cycle. A slightly expanded, firm counter optimizes support from the ankle through the heel to control pronation.

Perfect for running errands when you’re off duty or lounging around for a bit of R&R during the weekend at home, Hassia’s Piacenza is a must-have addition to your shoe wardrobe as its versatility and streamlined design easily transition from season to season. Pair the ocean blue with an oversized sweater layered over skinny jeans cuffed at the ankle to show off a bright pair of socks. Accessorize with a nylon backpack and a brightly colored beanie hat to the top it all off for a chill Saturday. For a relaxed evening indoors, go for basic leggings and a shawl, or a slub knit t-shirt and slouchy denim. Make a chic statement while still embracing the silhouette’s laid-back aesthetic when you opt for the red option. Choose a classic shirt dress and minimal jewelry for an impromptu lunch date to your favorite cafe with your best gal pals. We especially love Piacenza for our travel needs. Pack your luggage with just the essentials to create easy-going, stylish outfits that match well with either color—creating more time to focus on fun and less moments stressing over your daily look. The removable insole allows you to customize the fit, so you can adapt to whatever a day of exploring a new locale throws at you.
