Shoes- handmade and factory made in Le Marche
Ask anyone what they think of when they think of Italy, the top two things that come to mind will be food and style. Press them further about style and they will mention fashion and shoes and of course cars.
Well, living in Le Marche we are fully aware that this region is home to the best Italian shoes, many of which are handmade by artisans, or made in a local shoe factory and finished by hand.
We have had retailers and buyers ask us where they can locate the local Le Marche shoe makers, the Marche shoe factories and the shopping outlets that stock the best local shoes and there are a number of pamphlets on the subject and a staggering number of web sites and resources.
However these disparate resources make it very difficult to plan a shoe shopping visit to Marche Region, especially if you are a retailer wanting to vivit shoe wholesalers, so we have attempted to simplify things for you.

What we found was quite staggering, the local artisans produce the most incredible ranges of shoes, boots, belts and handbags.
Whilst they are mainly handmade leather shoes, they are also made in fabrics like neoprene, there are mens Italian shoes and Ladies Italian shoes and some shoemakers focus solely on childrens shoes.
