Maglieriapelle® is derived from "woven leather" in Italian. We have a history of handcrafting premium mens leather dress shoes and proudly serve the apparel needs of men who appreciate originality, creativity and a profound sense of achievement.
Today's retail landscape offers a variety of choices when buying leather loafers for men - from a local boutique to popular global brands. In our opinion though, most manufacturers and shoe retailers leave a lot to be desired when it comes to quality, craftsmanship and a value.
Every day, cheaply made shoes are offered at exorbitant margins to the end customer. We believe that there has to be a better way to offer custom well-made, comfortable and affordable mens leather dress shoes. The affordability part is relatively easy - sell directly to the customers and cut out the middle men. But how to offer the best quality? That's where we blow away the competition.
We prefer to craft our maglieria pelle shoes the old fashioned way - by hand, one shoe at a time. Our creative process incorporates a customer-focused approach and involves countless hours of imagining, designing and iterating each shoe, obsessing over every detail. Crafted with the finest quality materials using responsible and ethical manufacturing processes, our skilled artisans pour their heart and soul into making each pair.

With our refined processes and lower costs, we are able to pass on the savings to our customers. We confidently call each pair a piece of art and hope to see you wearing them in the near future.
