Vigevano - Italy's shoe city

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Dear all,

I have heard that there's a city called Vigevano which is known as the shoe capital of Italy and that it is not far Milan.

I am a shoe lover (and buy mostly English shoes like EGs & JLs, but also own Carminas, JM Westons & Aldens). I have seen the pictures of some really nice Italian shoes (such as those in the Japanese shoe magazine LAST) which I would like to acquire.

In April, I am taking a 10-day holiday in Milan and have the option of going to some neighbouring cities. Do you think it is worthwhile for me to drop by Vigevano to look at and buy shoes? If so, are there any particular shops or factories you think I should visit there?

Thank you

Here is some information getting supported by a personal shopper: http://www.affiliate.viator.com/broc...odules-customs On the same page there are the outlets: http://www.factory-outlet-italy.com/...Mailand-O.html Have fun! Yours Golf_Nerd

Thanks Golf_Nerd.

I would like to clarify that my question about shops or factories to visit relates to Vigevano rather than Milan.

I had done a search on 'Vigevano' on this forum and found nothing useful. Can someone who is familiar with Italy help?

Thank you

So what makes are they? There are several regions that make good shoes, not familiar with your place name. Maybe you have the name of a larger city in the region ... Form my "Googling" it looks like a town close buy Pavia, but did not find any brands related to the town. I think id rather visit the factories around Bologna & Florence, but tat is my2c. But please enlighten me in as to the brands, I might have missed something thanks Speed

The shoe making region (Italy's Northamptonshire) is the Marche region.
Hire a car and travel round.

I believe many of the shoe factories have outlet shops, but I don't know anything specific. Maybe one of the Italian members can help you.
Alternatively phone or e-mail the companies you are interested in.

Hi, Vigevano and Parabiago used to be the capital of Italian shoemaking but bengal-stripe is correct in saying that now it is the Marche region which has the edge.

At present in Vigevano, apart form the two big names, i.e. Moreschi and Gravati, remains just a bunch of smaller quality producers which do not sell under their own trademark, one of which is the one where our shoes are produced.

The bonus of Vigevano is that it has a splendid centre.

Thanks Fra. I saw some nice shoes at the brandstore of Gravati in SanRemo over xmas, and mto was not that much of an uppcharge. The store was smal but nice. The one in Milan is "old world" and less inspiering. There are quite a few factories. Im amazed, have not paid much attention to the region. Ususaly just "race" past ...
