About Brio & Co.
Away from massive distribution and imposed trends, the purpose of Brio & Co. is to offer a selection of authentic Italian shoes, sourced directly from the makers, family-owned businesses in Italy that take pride in the glorious tradition of handcrafting footwear to the highest standards.
The celebrated Italian style and exuberance are showcased in every pair of shoes, reflecting a peculiar way of living that pursues enjoyment in big and small achievements alike, inspired by a genuine passion for life and the simple things that make life a great journey.
- Great shoes don’t need a big name.
We work directly with small, high-quality shoemakers, bringing you style and excellent craftsmanship without the cost of a chain of intermediaries and endless overheads.
- Quality, not quantity.
We only carry limited quantity of select styles, as you would find in a typical Italian shoe shop. We keep an eye on seasons and trends, however we are convinced that style is a very personal matter and cannot be reduced to wearing what everybody else is wearing.
- Conscious shopping is empowering.
We acknowledge the real people, the story and passion behind every pair of shoes. High quality standards, timeless traditions and fair labor practices are all fostered by shoppers' choices. Fashion is certainly no exception, and conscientious choice of a product’s origin can make the difference.
Know the makers. Love the shoes.
Shoes have a story that starts with the story of the maker and blends into the story of the end user. Shoe-shopping, just like any shopping, translates into promoting certain stories over others and supporting the associated values within our daily life and style.

Shoe-shopping is not just about the shoes. It's about people, stories, passion... and, of course, shoes!
