Founded 2013 in Italy
Based in Milan

We spent over a year meticulously designing our first Velasca collection. Our shoes are hand-stitched using century-old traditions of fine Italian shoe-making. 'Quality First' means sourcing the best materials and putting craftsmanship back at the centre of the equation.

We've long had to choose between over-priced and over-marketed shoes that are no friend of your wallet, and low-quality, cheaply made shoes that are no friend of your feet. We knew there had to be a better way. So we created Velasca as a return to the basics: great shoes delivered directly to you at fair prices.
