History of Mens Santoni Shoes
The Santoni company was founded in the province of Macerata in the Italian region of Marche, back in 1975. The husband and wife co-founders Andrea and Rosa Santoni set up a very modest workshop and began work on assembling a team to produce the highest quality luxury shoes based on a principle of genuine passion and meticulous workmanship. Over 40 years later, many of those same expert craftsmen still work for Santoni today, having witnessed the evolution from a small workshop into a globally-acclaimed luxury brand. Gisueppe Santoni, the son of the founders, took creative control from the 1990s and steered the brand into new waters, developing and expanding upon the company’s rich heritage, and finding a bigger worldwide audience fort the ultimate in luxury footwear. Much has changed over the decades, but the Santoni company is still wholly owned by the Santoni family and every pair of shoes is still crafted in-house in Macerata, birthplace of the original founders.
