Antonio Meccariello

Founded 2012 in Italy
Based in Naples

Antonio Meccariello set up his own brand after a distinguished career at Kiton. He has quickly earned a loyal fan base through blogs and forums across the internet.

With a workshop located just northeast of Naples, the Meccariello name was established in 2012 with numerous photos of jaw-dropping shoes that caught the attention of discerning shoe lovers. Amongst the photos were never-seen-before patinas, admirable Norwegian stitching on oversized soles, as well as a good sampling of sleeker and more elegant models.
