Perry Ercolino

Founded 1933 in United States
Based in Doylestown

The Ercolino family has been in the shoe business since 1933, and I learned the fundamentals of the trade in my father’s workshop. I studied design in Milan, and I have been hand crafting bespoke and custom shoes for over twenty five years.

My artistic philosophy is quite simple: build fine custom shoes, one pair at a time, using only premium leathers and time honoured shoemaking techniques. The result is handsome footwear that fits better and becomes more beautiful with time.Today I am pleased to be able to offer my clients Old World quality and service.

My business philosophy is equally simple: provide every client exceptional, individualised service. Mindful of European fashion currents, I help every customer examine and interpret his individual style. My clients are prominent businessmen, Hollywood luminaries and sports icons. I work closely with each and every customer to design a shoe whose every detail (from style and colour to heel height and the number of eyelets) will perfectly complement his unique attire and lifestyle. Superior craftsmanship is my personal passion; superior service is my promise to you.
