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.
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.
We select only the highest quality leathers, tanned by the best Italian companies, recognised and certified throughout the world. In keeping with the tradition of the best master shoemakers who used potato starch to glue their soles, we have chosen natural chestnut-based glues.
Everything starts from raw materials. You can choose the most classic models but also bolder shades and materials such as exotic leathers. The soles are made entirely of natural leather and the workmanship ranges from Goodyear to Norwegian chain mail, from Norwegian turned to "tin" stitching that makes the shoes perfectly waterproof. We will handcraft the shoe you have created with our "configurator".
