About the brand
- made in Italy
- heritage brand
The long history of Sartore takes off in a small village in the South of France, nearby Nice, in 1930. This is where Paul Sartore starts a small shoe and repair shop. Over the years Paul and his wife expand their shop, which ultimately leads to opening their own factory for the production of a new line; a range of stitched moccasins.

As true shoes experts, always looking for the best and most beautiful leather work artisans, they want to change Sartore’s brand identity into a more modern style, influenced by the Italian ‘La Dolce Vita’. It was a booming time for ready-to-wear pieces and by creating a new way of wearing shoes, Sartore evolved in the brand we know today. The manufacturing was moved to Italy but is still faithful to its traditional French manufacturing process; unique techniques originally invented by Paul Sartore while using the most precious materials and an ultimate sign of authenticity.
As a brand that produces handmade pieces with luxurious materials, Sartore embodies more than just a trend; it embodies a real spirit, with attitude and a philosophy. All it needs is the detail of a buckle, the mix of materials and the combination of neutral and flashy colors to turn a shoe into a real classic and an icon of its time. The brand addresses modern, strong and free women, always active and reactive to the world around them. Trends and movements pass, Sartore remains.
