Hackear is an Italian company located in Modena, Italy. Their tagline says it all: “We manufacture quality and stylish footwear that cater to taste and necessity.” I believe this quote accurately describes their work and what they are able to deliver. I was very interested to find out how their footwear fits into the style of Italian footwear I am most familiar with High Stitch. After all, High Stitch has been the leading manufacturer in Italy for many years.
The shoes of Hackear are classified as street wear in Italy. As such, they are manufactured to fit with the norms of what one expects from a casual street shoe. Transparent, comfortable, and made of quality materials, the shoes by Hackear meet the demands of Italian fashion. They have a rather interesting way of putting it: “passe e sotre partie dei menzione e italian corsets.” translating literally to ” Passe a part of men’s wear Italian corsets”.
In English, the translation to: “we sell men’s shoes with matching socks” would be: “we sell men’s shoes, but the socks are in neutral colours.” I believe though, that hackear una is better translated to: “our men’s footwear but with a touch of our femininity”. In this case, we are talking about feminine qualities such as: softness, silky smooth leather, beautiful aesthetic details, a refined appeal, and elegant styling.
The tradition of men wearing sandals has been around since the 16th century. In the late 19th century however, women began taking up the trend for loafers, and hackear una became more widely accepted. Today, many fashion gurus claim that the invention of hackear una was a move towards gender equality. As a matter of fact, the tradition still persists in some parts of Mexico. The latest example of its use in Mexico came about during the 2021 Olympics in South Korea when athletes (most of them women) wore leopard skin shoes as their footwear during the soccer events.
The history of men’s sandals goes far back to early man. Archaeologists have discovered shoe-making tools dating from 400 years ago. One of the most innovative designs was discovered in Egypt and is called the hackeo. This type of shoe was designed with one side split so that when one walked the other half of the shoe would be on show. Interestingly, this type of footwear also had a pointed toe.
In the early years of modernity, hackeas or hack su served as necessities rather than fashion items. They were used by peasant workers and soldiers alike. For instance, hackeas or hack su servidores de oriente were found in the royal courts of the French Alps. French peasants would use them to keep their feet warm on cold nights. It was not until the nineteenth century that the hackeas or hack su began to be used by the masses.
Today the tradition continues to be kept alive by the elite classes of Spain, Portugal and Greece. Hack suits or hackeamos are still considered highly fashionable footwear in these countries. When you go to a bar or a party in these countries, one rarely finds a woman wearing an ugly or uncomfortable shoe. Of course, this is only because the demand for stylish footwear has increased over the years. In addition, many of the upscale salons and boutiques that cater to the elite classes of the western world also sell elegant hackea el rees or hack su.
If you are a fan of traditional hackeas or hackamos, then you can now sport them both with the help of modern technology. There are several online stores that now stock excellent quality hackea or hackamos shoes. Most of these online stores have wide selections of both old and new hackeas and are located right from the comfort of your home or office. So nos hackeamos nos e-mail estran los cuentas de twitter.
