On a recent trip to Paris
, we stumbled across a true gem: La Bottega di Lisa. Based in Italy, La Bottega Di Lisa is a family-operated shoe factory. With a rich and storied history of shoe making, the Lupetti Family employs traditional Italian shoe-making techniques while focusing on the best leathers they can find in all of Italy. Their search for the very best vegetable tanned leathers guarantees quality and longevity of their shoes. Unique hand staining techniques make their leather treatments gorgeous and on-of-a-kind! Made shoe by shoe, one at a time, each shoe has the soul of genuine Italian shoe making at it's finest. Named after their late daughter, Lisa, they keep her spirit alive as she lives throughout their beautiful styles. Ped is honored to be one of only a very few US retailers to offer these special handmade boots and shoes from Italy.
