YOUR TEACHER: DANIELE MARINI

the creation of MARINI BRAND. HAND-MADE, TRADITION AND INNOVATION since 1899.
Stylish Marini Brand bespoke shoes is deeply rooted in the shoemaking abilities of Cav. Giuseppe Marini, who in 1899 founded his own school for shoemakers, and opened a boutique and a laboratory in the heart of Rome, in Via Crispi 97.

For over 100 years, Marini Calzature remains loyal to its heritage and manufacturing techniques, faithfully tracing its true origins and traditions with every creation to this present day.

Each piece is entirely hand-made, from the direct measurement of each client’s foot until the finishing touches of the final product.
