History of Mens Cesare Paciotti Shoes

The roots of the Cesare Paciotti brand can be traced back to 1948 when Cesare’s parents ran a small family shoemaking business in the Macerata province of Italy. A young Cesare learned the craft of hand-made shoe production and later pursued his interests in fashion and design. Cesare and his sister Paola eventually inherited the family business in 1980, and re-branded the company under the name of Cesare Paciotti with an aim of reaching a much wider global audience with new anti-conformist rock and roll styles. Paola handled the business management while Cesare took on the role of creative director, quickly attracting interest and fashionable footwear commissions from such prestigious fashion houses as Versace and Dolce & Gabbana. Cesare Paciotti also played a crucial role in shaking up the visual marketing of footwear, dismissing the tradition of using static still-life shots of empty shoes and instead employing top models to showcase the footwear at its very best. Cesare Paciotti shoes now generate cool celebrity acclaim from the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Anne Hathaway.
