CALZATURIFICIO LONDON


The shoe factory CALZATURIFICIO LONDON, owned by the Marzetti family, has been working in the design and manufacture of men’s and women’s fashion footwear for over 40 years. Therefore, it is able to fully express the concepts of creativity and quality of the Marche entrepreneurship.

Though remaining, in fact, a typical family-run business, it has managed to strengthen its growth by gradually recruiting highly professional employees, who understood and started pursuing the company’s objectives, philosophy and mission. This led to the creation of collections that combine high craftsmanship with the continuous search for innovative materials and techniques, thus anticipating and exploring the needs of an ever-changing market, made by modern men and women being dynamic and sober at the same time, and by young girls loving the "Made in Italy" design.


The company's high technological level, the professionalism of its technicians, both in planning and in manufacturing, as well as the management capacity of its top executives, who pay much attention to the ongoing developments of the footwear industry, are the company’s strengths, which allow to perform complex, long and elaborate processes, such as:

  • GOODYEAR CLASSICO: welt, upper and bottom sewn together with two seams
  • GOODYEAR FLEX: welt, upper and bottom sewn together with two flexible seams
  • NORVEGESE ROVESCIO: reversed welt, upper and bottom sewn together with two seams
  • BLAKE: bottom and insole sewn together with one seam
  • IDEAL: reversed leather without welt sewn on the bottom
  • AGO: cemented
  • SACCHETTO: with membrane lining (Gore-Tex)
  • WELLNESS SHOES: lightweight, comfy and flexible



Since it was founded, the company has always applied a quality management system, with repeated and continuous tests on materials, on semi-finished products at every manufacturing stage and on the final product, with internal compliance reports. This allowed it to be one of the first companies in Italy to obtain, as early as 1998, the ISO:9001 certification (certificate No. 12) 1° in the footwear industry.
Furthermore, it was the first company in the footwear sector to obtain the ISO:14001 Environmental certification in 2013 thanks to its particular commitment to reducing atmospheric emissions and promoting the healthiness of the workplace. The premises are freed from asbestos and fully air-conditioned by using heat pumps powered by a photovoltaic system: this has made the company independent in energy terms, since it obtains energy from renewable sources (sun), thus eliminating CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.


In 2011, the company was awarded the prestigious PREMIO ETICO (Ethical Prize) for the emphasis placed on the workers' wellbeing, also thanks to continuous and accurate medical surveillance.

The company boasts a partnership with prestigious national and international brands, for which it develops collections intended for fashion shows and other important presentations for the trade press and other professionals (buyers). All this shows that the company is now recognized as one of the best artisan workshops of the district, which is able to interpret at best the customers’ wishes, and to cater to their needs with professionalism.

Nowadays, CALZATURIFICIO LONDON is a cunning interpreter of the evolution of customs. It is fully aware that customers want to be constantly stimulated and attracted, and that innovation, quality and exclusivity are the drivers of the fashion market. Its primary objective is still to create new high-quality collections at competitive prices. A close attention to the market needs and evolutions has led to the launch of a new wellness shoe line designed and manufactured with innovative processes without the use of adhesives. This makes these shoes particularly lightweight, extremely flexible and easy to use, ideal to keep you walking all day for long walks.
