View Designer Profile
A former DJ motivated by an innate passion for design, fashion and women's feet, Giuseppe Zanotti began manufacturing meticulously crafted footwear in his hometown of Rimini in the early 1990s. Giuseppe saw the shoe factory as something more akin to a fashion house set up to meet the needs of every woman's foot, and not as an industrial concern that mass produces tedious shoes. Over the years he has maintained the same naif and rock 'n' roll spirit, while keeping one eye on the manufacturing traditions of the past and the other on the future. His creations are true to his initial inspirations, where art and music are essential feelings to be turned into style for our feet... feet that should not be covered with models, but rather adorned out of regard for a woman's beauty and for the world revolving around her.
