In 2009, Philip Nappi left Nashville with his wife, Dana, and their daughter Eleanna to pursue a lifelong dream
of learning how to make shoes. It was while they were in Italy that he discovered his grandfather,
Pietro Nappi, was himself a shoemaker along with Pietro's father and grandfather. From that moment,
the Peter Nappi brand was born and with it a commitment to make quality shoes that reflect
timelessness, character, and authenticity. Peter Nappi designs pay homage to the past, present, and future --
we strive not to follow trends, but to create footwear that becomes part of your core style.
At Peter Nappi, it is of the utmost importance to us that every product that bears our name meets the highest possible
quality standards. Quality is non-negotiable, but equally so is respectable and responsible treatment of the craftsmen
and women who make our shoes. We have found the perfect mix of these requirements with our partners
in Italy, and cherish working with such talented, joyful people. We use the highest quality leathers
from around the world for our shoes and bags; from Kudu to classic Tuscan vitello,
our leather is handled with the utmost care from start to finish.
We believe that every consumer’s decision makes a difference. Our quality reflects an appreciation for artisans
as well as a commitment to mindful consumption; the timelessness and durability of Peter Nappi footwear
mean they need not be replaced every season, but cherished for a lifetime. On top of our unswerving
commitment to quality, we also believe in the longevity of our footwear: we provide the tools and direction
to extend the life of your shoes for years to come. We are committed to a slower practice and more
mindful consumption--we are very happy to have one-time customers that are satisfied for life!
