NERA was founded in September of 2018 and is based in Hong Kong.
We believe in blending the passion of Italian automotive craftsmanship and the heritage of Italian shoemaking. Our handmade shoes are inspired by supercar engineering, and pay tribute to the long heritage of Italian sports car making and racing.
NERA (neh-rah) simply means black in Italian. Black is also the natural color of carbon fiber, which is renowned for its incredible strength and lightness; being primarily present within the most extreme engineering feats and finely crafted works of mankind: from fighter jet helmets to the body of Formula 1 race cars. Just like the aforementioned fine works of engineering, NERA engineers shoes that represent the dedicated spirit of creativity and craftsmanship.
All NERA sneakers are made in the Eastern Italian Region of Abruzzo, known for making world-class quality shoes and leather products for all the top major and boutique fashion brands worldwide.
The entire process of creating a pair of NERA, from the designing process to the phases of mould making, sourcing, stitching, and final assembly, are performed within the region of Abruzzo. Every single pair of NERA has been handled by at least 25 number of craftsmen, designers and engineers. The hand built production process, ranging from hand-sewing the contrast stitching, hand-painted upper and hand-carved leather, involves an incredible number of hours in research and development.
Our shoes are sourced from renowned suppliers within the Italian shoemaking industry. We frequently visit trade shows in Northern Italy to ensure we are able to obtain exclusive and rare materials, along with learning new treatments methods, and further improving our quality.
