Top five shoe boutiques in Florence

Florence is known as the shoe capital of the world. As the birthplace of Gucci and the city where Salvatore Ferragamo made his name, it was a pioneer of the luxury footwear market and one of its main shopping streets is Via de’ Calzaiuoli, the ‘street of shoemakers’. The city’s shoe boutiques offer an array of styles, from comfortable everyday driving shoes to towering stilettos and chunky winter boots; there is a shoe and store to suit every taste.
