Impeccable Italian craftsmanship. Classic American styling. The finest materials.
With these guiding standards, the Zelli brand was formed in the mid-1990s. We started with a small collection of footwear, belts and wallets in premium calfskin and fine exotic leathers. Zelli quickly became known for its luxury Caiman crocodile, Teju lizard, and ostrich products all expertly crafted in the Tuscany region of Italy and sold in the best men’s specialty stores in the US. The Zelli standards continue today along with a passion for providing incomparable customer service.
Every pair of Zelli shoes is expertly crafted in the Tuscany region of Italy. The amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail are part of what separates Zelli from other brands. By placing premium exotic leathers in the hands of master Italian craftsman, Zelli has created a line of footwear that includes examples of both classic and contemporary styles. Most of Zelli’s styles are constructed with a Blake Canalino stitch construction. This design makes these shoes durable and lightweight so you can enjoy your pair for years.
