Soon the workshop became a thriving workplace, where traditional shoe-making techniques, such as the slip-lasting method, combined with modern and innovative production processes. In 1984 the family opened a new establishment housing a new production line and a showroom. Further developments came in the 1990s, when Napoleoni decided to go international, taking part in trade fairs and acquiring customers all over the world.
Napoleoni is on the market as a manufacturer of Italian footwear and wants to proudly preserve its identity. This is the main reason why all the processing phases have been kept in Italy in contrast with the general trend to delocalize.

The family business has grown steadily in time but the philosophy guiding every decision has remained the same: “We strive to make good things and make them well. Our brand is Made in Italy because that is what we are”. Artisan tradition and innovation in products and methods – these are the qualities that have powered Calzaturificio Napoleoni’s success through the decades.
