Founded 1921 in Italy
Based in Vigevano

The Almini company was founded 1921 and is based in Vigevano, near Milan. It has been run by the same family for four generations.

What sets Almini shoes apart is the process: starting from making a unique upper, followed by fitting the leather directly on to the foot — for an authentic bespoke experience. The stitches are sewn directly onto the sole, so there are no visibile trimmings on the outside, leaving the shoes with as sleek of an appearance as possible.
Their collection of hand made mens shoes is indicative of the tradition and the innovation that are the result of extensive research and years of artisanal heritage.
