Brand Spotlight

When Italian Heritage Mixes with American Ingenuity

The namesake of the Peter Nappi brand immigrated to the United States from southern Italy in 1904 and brought with him the family's century-old tradition of shoemaking. After skipping a generation, his grandson Phillip Nappi was inspired to revive the family business. So he moved to Italy, was trained in the craft and rekindled the brand in 2011. Since then, the Peter Nappi brand has been gaining a following thanks to its distinctive blend of Italian craftsmanship and American swagger. The shoes are designed in Nashville with a modern man's sensibility, but are made the old fashioned way, by skilled artisans in Tuscany. As hardwearing as they are handsome, they're meant to be lived in and only look better as time goes on.
