Agl's Lava sole, loved by stars



The look is strong, but the feel is cozy. It's Agl's Lava sole: a texture and look that, especially in the black version, recalls the roughness of lava stone, but feels light and comfortable to the touch. Credit is due to the technique with which the sole is made. The structure, introduced in the Marche brand's collections since 2022, is a Tpu rubber wedge with a flat fit that gives 12 cm in height. The sole is created by expanding some air inside the rubber: in this way it manages to maintain the platform shape while becoming much lighter. A solution that looks at comfort, also thanks to the 7 cm front platform.


The formula, declined on boots, sneakers and lace-ups, has conquered influencers and celebrities, and in particular well-known faces from the world of music, thanks to its style that goes well with a decisive and out-of-the-box look. Not to mention that it gives extra inches, but allows for much looser movement than heels. The winner of the 74th Sanremo Festival, Angelina Mango, is no exception. The singer-songwriter-revelation has worn Agl shoes with Lava soles on several occasions: they appear in the video "La Noia," the song with which she climbed to the top of the Sanremo charts, but also on stage and in everyday life.


In the video clip of "Che t'o dico a fa'" the artist wears instead a limited edition of the AGL Kristen McMenamy capsule collection: it is the K Seven ankle boot in white calfskin with matching Lava sole, with studs, buckles and fringe details. Feeling absolutely rock glam. After all, in the DNA of Agl, a brand founded in 1958, today there is a desire for playfulness, extravagance and experimentation: ingredients added to the family brand by the Giusti sisters, who have combined the traditional art of shoe manufacturing with the evolution of visual arts and fashion. Lava, with its extra volume and irregular weave, at once durable and lightweight, is the result of this mashup.
