The footwear magician

  • • Antonia is well known all over the world
  • • Her women’s shoes are bespoke and handmade
  • • She has specialist anatomical knowledge

A former student of Medicine, from her tiny workshop in the centre of Reggio Emilia, Antonia Micheletti has become a renowned women’s shoemaker. Paying the greatest attention to the feet of the women asking for a pair of shoes, boots or sandals, Antonia works using her hands with ancient wisdom. She mixes traditional techniques with her anatomic knowledge of feet and the spine, to create personalised footwear to be in harmony with the unique needs of her clients. For this purpose, she uses a large number of templates, moulds and wooden forms, which she slowly adjusts with detail-oriented care. Her shoes are conceived to last many years, without losing their elegance.
