Beneath Mount Vesuvius, in the Gulf of Naples, lies a factory of artisans that have been producing the world's finest shoes for generations.
After a year-long search for the most renowned shoemakers in the world, we fortuitously found ourselves in Naples, where we began a fruitful relationship with the Napolitano factory that expertly crafts each pair of Paul Evans.
Although initially hesitant to work with inexperienced shoe designers, our factory quickly fell in love with our passion for luxury footwear and desire to fill the needs of a global market.
Italy has long been the epicenter of world fashion. Sophisticated craftsmanship, an eye for beautiful and timeless designs, and the unrelenting pursuit for high-quality materials make Italy the greatest shoe producing country in the world. Skills that are passed down from generation to generation allow our factory to create stylish, comfortable footwear that that will last a lifetime.
Our shoes are Blake stitched, a superior construction method that yields numerous benefits, including: maximum sole flexibility for exceptional comfort, a sleek and fashionable aesthetic, and ease of re-soling for years of wear. Made using the highest-quality Italian calfskin leather, our shoes easily surpass our competitors in terms of quality and design. But perhaps what makes our footwear so breathtaking is the hand painted finish. Each pair of Paul Evans is painted by a skilled Napolitano artisan to create a truly remarkable and unique finishing effect that will turn heads.
We've turned the luxury footwear industry upside down.
By sourcing the highest-quality footwear available and eliminating excessive retail markups, Paul Evans is the leading direct-to-consumer shoe brand manufacturing exclusively in Naples, Italy.
