Based in Italy, La Bottega Di Lisa is a small family-operated shoe factory. Named after their late daughter, Lisa, they keep her spirit alive as she lives throughout their beautiful Italian styles. With a rich and storied history of shoe making, the Lupetti Family employs traditional Italian shoe-making techniques while focusing on the gorgeous small batch leathers they can find in Italy. Their search for the very best vegetable tanned leathers guarantees quality and longevity of their timeless styles. Unique hand staining techniques make their leather treatments gorgeous and one-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. Ped is honored to be one of only a very few US retailers to offer La Bottega Di Lisa shoes.
