Looking for a pair of nice Italian shoes that will work with your outfit? I have a proposition to you: why don’t you consider Fratelli Borgioli?
I recently discovered them flipping through Forzieri’s website and right from the start, they caught my eye. You just know when you see quality and this is it. There are about 30 models on sale and every one of them looks perfect.
Fratelli Borgioli is a small company started back in 1946 by brothers René and Valerio Borgioli. Currently at their third generation, they’ve quite a history and seem to know their stuff.
Judging by what’s on sale at Forzieri, they mostly have wingtip shoes, but there are also a couple of cap toe models. If you look at the close-ups, the details will blow your mind.
They all come with a two years warranty. What’s great it that they also offer a professional shoe polish kit for $115 which will help you keep your pair in great shape long after the warranty’s gone. It includes light and dark shoe polish, extra laces, a shoe horn, cleaning brushes and a buffing cloth.
I won’t say anything about the genuine leather, because that’s implied. The firm wants to stay true to its Tuscan origin. All production operations take place in a radius of 30 km around their headquarters, meaning that every shoe they sell is 100% made in Tuscany. In fact, all they facilities are located between Pisa, Siena, Florence and Luca.
In today’s world, when a firm’s operations are plastered all over the world, this is one way that Fratelli Borgioli tries to keep its essence and reputation, hard earned in over 60 years.
Well, I can’t tell you more about them, but make sure to check them out. Go find a pair of Fratelli Borgioli shoes and then, when you’ve tried them, come back and let us know your impression.
