Tonino Caccin, founder of the firm, learned young the art of shoe making.
He began working as apprentice at a shoemaker that thought him the profession. In 1947, at the age of twelve, he began his own activity, at first on behalf of a third person, few years later with his own brand, drawing personally new models and improving his ability.
In 1977 he created the brand RUNIC, conceiving and producing models of high quality that are characterized today by the particular handicraft workmanship and are still produced according to the most ancient traditions of “Riviera del Brenta”.
Thought for a specific typology of footwear, in 1979 the lifestyle brand WIMBLEDON was created to follow new fashion trends.
In the last years there has been the introduction of sophisticated machineries in some workmanships, however, the ability of the hand and the experienced eye of the man guarantees the maximum quality of the product.
Today the firm RUNIC is lead by the sons Nico, Ruggero and Matteo with the same professionalism and devotion. Their shoes are delivered to the most distinguished shops in Italy, Europe and world wide markets.
Our company has over 50 years among the best producers in the Italian luxury footwear and high fashion.
The “original tubular moccasin” is the product par excellence that makes our company stand out: completely assembled and hand-sewn on the last, it guarantees a shoe of exceptional quality and comfort; the RUNIC shoe factory also produces the classic fitted Blake and the Goodyear and Norwegian manufacturing. Besides to serving a loyal high-level clientele, we also collaborate with some important national and foreign Brands, and with some Private Labels.
The materials used for the RUNIC shoes are among the best in trade: the leather, wisely tanned and seasoned, and the skins carefully selected, are purchased in the best tanneries to get the maximum quality of workmanship and finishing touch. In fact, every shoe is hand made in the least details in all of its various phases: from the selection and the cut of the skins, to the seam and assemblage of the upper, up to the laying in box. Each model was created to try to satisfy the different needs and tastes that the market, but above all, designed to last over time.
