Inspired by Italian craft, design, and leather, Amy creates effortless yet sophisticated handmade footwear. Each style is rooted in an appreciation for classic bespoke tailoring, designed to elevate how you feel and how you look—regardless of gender. “It all began simply—I really just wanted to make beautiful shoes. But it wasn’t enough to just learn the craft; I wanted to immerse myself in Italian culture and tradition, one where makers and artisans are integrated into everyday life. So I did.” Amy Slosky, Designer & Maker Pivoting from a business career to a creative one, Amy moved to Florence, Italy to pursue a passion for footwear. Remaining in Florence for four years, she honed her craft making handmade shoes under mentor Angelo Imperatrice, a renowned master artisan. The Amy Slosky studio philosophy follows the centuries-old practice of a single artisan completing every step of a handmade shoe. We stay true to this time-honoured tradition, paying homage to the craft—l’artignale. Our shoes are handmade via a thoughtful working process that includes acute attention to detail. By using traditional hand-stitched sole construction methods, you get the ultimate in durability and comfort. The result? The perfect shoe, every time. All of our shoes are handmade with the finest Italian leather uppers, outer sole, and heel. Every shoe also has a 100% leather insole. The use of premium all-leather components means that our shoes naturally mold to the contours of your feet with wear, enhancing comfort and making them uniquely yours.
