Of course, if you just want to enjoy the simulation, you can do so free of charge. It will be a fun time for you to choose the color of leather, sole, and stitching to create a model of your choice.

Tips 1: "Start with a key color
When you start the color simulation, if you do not have a clear image from the beginning, you may not know which color to choose first, and you may get lost in color. In such cases, the first thing to keep in mind is that "there must always be a key color somewhere.Your own key color".This is the first thing to keep in mind. By deciding on a key color at the beginning,the concept of your order will be very clear.
First of all, what is my definition of key color?


  1. 1. a color that I always feel at home wearing. 

  2. 2. a color that I always choose for some reason.

  3. 3. colors that are indispensable to the story.

Any of the above three colors should be included.The three colors must be included in the body. This color should always be included, even if it is only in one place on the entire body. It does not necessarily have to be in the leather of the body. It can be a string, stitching, or a key color.Just one will do.It's not necessary to choose it in the leather of the main body. By including that one color, you can always come back to your color concept.

The overwhelming majority of men tend to wear navy, black, gray, brown, etc., but if there is one color in particular that you often choose for your own outfits, you can include that color in at least one of your outfits,If you have a color that you often choose for your outfits, you can create a sense of stability and unity in the balance of your style.

These are colors that have been favorites since childhood, colors that you feel at home just by looking at them, or colors that you unconsciously choose. These colors bring a sense of security to the finished product, so when in doubt, it is a good idea to choose a personal color. Of course,〈1〉 and〈2〉 have a near-equal relationship, so if you follow their mutual tendencies, they may be the same color.

It is very important to convey your feelings and story to someone because you have put your heart and soul into the color you have created. Incidentally, in the past, we have often encountered color schemes such as "green and yellow," "light blue and orange," and "black and red" that we thought "must be that color. In this way, it might be interesting to create a story to be proud of, based on the concept of a particular coloring.


  3 The standard racing colors have a big impact. This color" is also a persistent favorite.


Tips2. "A sense of balance in material selection

After deciding on the key color, the next step is to decide on the overall body color. Of course, if the key color is used as it is for the upper side, as in the case of Idea Corsa, the image will be clear. However, another important factor in deciding the body color is the "sense of balance.Material SelectionThe other important element in deciding on the body is the "choice of material.

The Negroni configurator allows you to choose from a variety of materials outside of the standard lineup.Imagining the finished product while considering the characteristics of the material is one of the best parts of ordering!Please refer to the following list of materials that can be used for your order.

Tips3. "Do not put dark stitches on light-colored leather.

This is a point I pay special attention to when introducing custom-made shoes. Adding colored stitches increases originality, but depending on the color, the color may often "look" different from what you imagine due to the illusion of contrast. For example, take a look at #10RED stitched on white and #10 stitched on black.

As you can see, the red naturally shows on the black, but the red stitches placed on the white look darker than the actual color. This is a phenomenon that occurs when the thin red color sinks into the contrast with the white, and is a point to be especially careful about when ordering shoes. Other light colors, such as ivory and taupe, tend to cause the same problem.

Such phenomena can also be confirmed on the configurator, so if you are concerned, check the colors beforehand.

Tips4. "Be bold and play with shoelace colors

Shoelaces (shoelaces) play an unexpected supporting role in custom-made shoes. Since they can be obtained later as replacement parts, we recommend that you choose colors that are not available in the lineup when making custom-made shoes. Of course, the same color as the body color you have chosen is the most popular color, but you can also choose a bright color such as red or orange. Incidentally, we have added a gray cord to the Idea Corsa series from this time.
It is an easy-to-use color, so we especially recommend it when ordering.

 The stitching cannot be changed once the order is placed, but the string can be changed later. 


Tips5: "If you are not sure about the size, don't hesitate to consult with a customer service representative.

Size selection is the riskiest part of ordering.If you already own a pair of Negroni shoes, it is possible to get a similar result by using your existing size as a reference, but you still need to be careful when making your first pair of Negroni shoes to order.
