italian master shoemaker
Damiano Chiappini comes from a shoemaking family, whose father Luigi was the master from whom he learned the secrets of the shoemaking.
The family’s experience dates back to the 1930s, when Luigi, as was the custom at the time, would go to his customers’ homes to make shoes on the spot, completely by hand and all made to measure.
Each shoe is produced entirely by hand and shipped directly from us, no intermediate steps, no unnecessary additional costs.
The cost of each shoe is equal to its intrinsic value.
Damiano himself, since he was a boy, grew up with those healthy principles of patience, hard work and care for the product that were – and still are – the heritage handed down by his father.
He became a craftsman at the end of the seventies, when he was just twenty years old, Damiano has therefore continued with the experience of entirely handmade and made-to-measure footwear, refining it over time with new materials and better techniques, in order to achieve a product that can be defined as original and truly unique.
DIRECTLY FROM THE MANUFACTURER
With every detail considered, Damiano begins the metamorphic process of turning naturally sourced materials into objects of ultimate refinement.
Proud to have participated with our shoes the message of master Roberto Bonaventura wanted to represent in this short film. The beauty of our territories and the footwear tradition as a symbol of art, passion and identity. Thank you.
