Shoes and accessories for handmade unique items lovers.

M DESIGN is an artisanal workshop born with the idea of creating innovative footwear made entirely by hand using new processes and materials.

Our products are the result of 30 years of experience in footwear design, an experience that has allowed us to design and produce shoes totally made by hand, without machinery using vegetable tanned curried leather *, paying particular attention to the comfort of the foot and design .

The well-being of the foot and of the environment are of utmost importance for us, as well as create products for the true lovers of the handmade looking for something different.

_The chosen materials and handmade processes allow our production to have a low environmental impact_

Our mission is to offer our customers quality products that last over time at an affordable price because without intermediaries, directly from producer to consumer.

The perfect fusion of tradition and innovation, this is what M DESIGN want to be.

*Curried leather vegetable tanned, has characteristics of strength and especially very high hygiene which make it particularly suitable for the production of many articles of common use.
The vegetable tanned leather does not upset the environmental balance at any point of its path. Born from a waste material in the food industry and if it were not tanned would end up as waste of slaughter.
The raw skins coming at tanneries preserved through the most natural of products: pure sea salt. Therefore, are subjected to the tanning process, with the use of tanning products of vegetable origin.

With this material you get the perfect isolation of the foot from the ground and allows the normal transpiration of the foot.

Frequently asked questions


Le taglie si basano sulle calzate (create con regole tecniche testate da anni) delle nostre scarpe. Ogni calzata è diversa, dipende da diversi fattori, il più importante è la scelta della forma con cui creare la scarpa, quindi non possono essere comparate taglie con altre scarpe già acquistate perché ogni produttore di scarpe lavora con le sue calzate.

Per la guida misure contattateci qui su Etsy o all' indirizzo email

Resi e rimborsi

Non accettiamo resi o rimborsi perché le calzature sono su ordinazione, contattateci qui su Esty o al per la nostra guida misure per evitare problemi di calzata.
Ad eccezione di difetti di produzione, come ad esempio cuciture rotte o pellame danneggiato ( strappato o lacerato).
In questo caso possiamo cambiare le scarpe facendone un paio nuovo o rimborsando la cifra ma il cliente dovrà provare che il prodotto è arrivato da lui già danneggiato, una cosa un po' strana e rara quando una scarpa viene fatta su ordinazione appositamente per una persona.
Non siamo responsabili in caso di vostro errore nella scelta delle taglie, prima di effettuare un ordini consigliamo di usare la guida misure.

Sizes are on our shoe width ( fit created with traditional technical shoe rules tested by years ) , every fit is different, it depends on several factors, the most important is the choice of the shoe last, so it can't be made size comparisons with other shoes already bought because every shoe maker works in different ways.

We can't take back or refund because are made to order shoes, please to avoid fit problems follow our guide, just contact us at or on Etsy and ask for it.
Except in cases of manufacturing defects such as seams broken or damaged leather (snatched or torn). In this case we can change the shoes and make another one or refund but the customer must prove that the product has come from him already damaged, what a little strange and rare on made to order shoes, when it is done a piece specifically for a single person.
