FAQ

Italy is famous for making the world’s best shoes because of excellent craftsmanship, shoe quality, and second-to-none style. Italians have been making beautiful footwear for centuries, durable yet fashionable, with precision and care at the heart of every step of the process.  The long standing expertise of Italian shoemakers transcends generations as artisans have perfected their craft and then passed along their knowledge. These passionate professionals experiment and refine, inspired by the best of their heritage combined with today’s cutting-edge designs. They innately know what works well in handmade Italian shoes and then continue to innovate in extraordinary ways.  At Italian Shoemakers, we’re proud to be part of this shoemaking culture. Our stylish, high-quality shoes are exclusively made in Italy, produced in our facility nestled in the hills of Tuscany. Each pair is infused with Italian heritage, then given a metallic stamp to verify authenticity. Next, we ship them from our Italian shoe company to our USA headquarters in Miami, Florida.

Neither, actually! What’s ideal: shoes that fit snugly without being too tight or too loose. When shoes are too tight, you literally won’t have wiggle room. This can lead to blisters and more. Feet can swell, shoes would pinch, and you just wouldn’t feel comfortable. When shoes are too loose, they don’t offer enough support and can also be uncomfortable. This can, unfortunately, lead to tripping and falling. Right-sized shoes comfortably accommodate each foot’s widest spot while securely staying in place. They also are long enough, heel to toe. Because feet can expand, especially on days that are warm or when you’re standing or walking much of the day, it can sometimes make sense to go up half a size. Because we recognize the importance of wearing the right size, you can return ones that don’t fit (or exchange them or receive a credit) for 30 days after the shipping date. For 60 days after that date, you can still exchange them for a gift card or store credit.
