Pollini was founded in 1953, in the area of Emilia Romagna, a district known for its authentic shoemaking and highly skilled artisans. One of the most distinctive footwear brands, Pollini is known for its innovative approach for shoe design, characterized by its graphic printed and herringbone soles combined with colorful and embellished uppers. Since 2012, the brand has been under the creative direction of footwear royalty Nicholas Kirkwood, offering fashion-forward designs from heels to flats. For sneakers with edge, Pollini is the go-to brand. With a collection encompassing high-tops and slip-on styles, Pollini's sneakers are detailed with metal toecaps and leopard-print leather uppers, for a quirky twist on Italian chic.
