Giuseppe Zanotti comes from San Mauro Pascoli, a small town a few kilometers from Fellini’s Rimini, famous for its long-established shoe manufacturing tradition.
In the early Eighties Zanotti was a keen DJ, frequenting eclectic, avant-garde nightspots. Shortly afterwards his natural bent for art, design and fashion led him to follow the prêt-à-porter catwalk shows in Milan and Paris with great interest. But it was his deep-rooted passion for women’s shoes and his fascination with the craft industry he had so admired in his native town that spurred him to take the first big step towards becoming a shoe designer.
Step into a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti Design shoes or boots and you are instantly transformed into a princess. His name has become a staple in the list of premiere footwear brands over the past decade, and for good reason. His attention to detail, an eternally sexy style, and embellishments fit for a queen have made his footwear desired the world over. From attention-grabbing cut-out wedges to demure daytime flats Giuseppe Zanotti has something for every shoe-fanatic. Zanotti's high-fashion debut started almost 30 years ago as a freelance women’s shoe designer, working with leading Italian and international manufacturers. After a few years in the business, in the mid 90’s he decided to launch his own brand and design the shoes of his dreams, which are now appreciated also by many A-list celebrities all around the world.
