A company’s story is always a story of people who pursue their dreams, the same people who do everything to achieve them with talent and sacrifice. Massimo Santini began his journey in the world of footwear when he was a boy, growing up in a region where everything revolved around making shoes. Having always breathed in this magical atmosphere, his passion grew strong within him. In 1989, he made the big step: Massimo chose to go down the winding road of entrepreneurship alone with his ideas, preferring a life which initially seemed very uncertain but later he found a life that suited him better. He founded his company, Santini S.r.l., in Morrovalle, in Le Marche, without knowing wherever this decision would have led him: only halfway to a calculated approach and halfway to a mix of instinct, initiative and courage. This challenge began small but had great ambition and in a region dedicated to craftsmanship, where businesses were typically family-run, Massimo worked as the executive director, designer, creator and promoter of his own footwear lines, not to mention the hard work required to achieve his dream.
Santini shoes had all the right elements to turn heads: their attention to detail, their modern style and the high-quality materials were the best business cards and it did not take long before they attracted the interest of international buyers. Massimo Santini Shoes soon became a musthave for their boutiques and its shoes were an essential and appealing item among the most demanding female customers. Santini shoes thereby consolidated their position in the international market with the most popular trends. They are comfortable yet elegant shoes, travel companions with an unmistakable style resulting from the designers’ creativity and craftsmanship. These are shoes for dynamic women in step with the times. Santini shoes are unique and ageless. A unique sober style interpreted in many different shapes, for women and men. One soul for one collection inspired by contemporary life in contemporary spaces, expressing our way of being in the world: unique.
