We are a family run business with a rich shoe heritage. Palazzo Pitti Shoes was established in 1968 by Johnnie Lazaro, born from his love and passion for beauty, art and handcrafted quality. 49 Years later, Palazzo Pitti still has a strong Italian heritage, continuing the tradition of exclusive and exquisite footwear.
Named after the Palazzo Pitti in Florence - home to haute couture fashion shows, Florence’s Palazzo Pitti symbolises all we stand for - quality, craftsmanship and Italian heritage. The palace was bought by the Medici family in 1549 and became the chief residence of the ruling families of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. It grew as a great treasure house, as later generations amassed paintings, plates, jewellery and luxurious possessions.
Our brands are strong, original and chic, and some even a little quirky and off the wall! The leathers used are luxurious. Our collections are exclusive and innovative, emulating the originality of our Clients. The key elements that differentiate our products from others are a unique and personal style. Even the love and care we put into our stores is done to create an exceptional and stylish look, providing a distinct experience for our Clients, which is our priority. Providing every person that enters our storefronts (or online shops) with fashionable, uniquely crafted, elegant and quality footwear is our mission.
