History of Mens Moreschi Shoes
The Italian footwear brand Moreschi was founded way back in 1946 by Mario Moreschi in Vigevano, one of the most celebrated shoemaking districts in the world. Moreschi’s mission was to produce beautiful shoes to the highest possible standards for the high-class gentleman who insists on nothing but the absolute best. The small Italian business leapt onto the bigger global stage in 1957 when Mario’s son, Gianbeppe, took over the reins of the business and reached out to a wider international audience. The sheer quality of the footwear attracted some of the richest and most powerful people on the planet, including Popes, Nelson Mandela and Michael Jackson. Now under the leadership of Mario, Stefano and Francesco Moreschi - the three grandchildren of the original founder – the brand continues to expand across the globe with new stores opening in Dubai and Qatar, and with international sales now accounting for over 75% of Moreschi’s £40 million sales.
