OUR STORY BEGINS IN FLORENCE IN 1986
Leonardo: soul of our shoes
Florence is a place of inspiration and culture, where design is intertwined with history and everyday life. A transversal dimension that permeates the city and involves all its inhabitants, filling their lives with beauty. It is in this place that Leonardo Shoes was born, a luxury brand of handcrafted leather goods made in Tuscany, born in 1986 from the brilliant mind of its founder, Anan Alshalabi.
Of Palestinian origins, Anan studied in Rome and Perugia, to then identify Florence as his chosen city. Here he creates a brand that has its roots in Middle Eastern culture, interweaving it with the Renaissance allure of the search for ecstasy that beauty moves in the hearts of those who know how to observe. This is how his first refined handcrafted creations were born, following in the footsteps of the ancient Tuscan manufacturing art of leather processing.
Passion, inspiration and determination lead Anan to open his boutique in the heart of Florence, founding a luxury fashion brand of 100% made in Italy leather accessories. Quality of raw materials, craftsmanship and "made to measure" are the cornerstones around which the world of Leonardo Shoes develops, where Anan - supported today by his sons Karam and Omar - gives life to unique creations inspired by the timeless style of craftsmanship made in Florence.
All the creations signed by Leonardo Shoes - from men's and women's shoes to bags and small leather goods - are born from the work of expert craftsmen who have made the made in Tuscany a philosophy of life, bringing together innovation, tradition and territory in their production techniques . The design of the Leonardo Shoes collections develops in the search for the right balance between the classicism of luxury style and the new trends of international fashion, creating fashion accessories that add a unique and recognizable touch to every outfit.
