Doucal's is an Italian footwear and accessories brand established in 1973 by Mario Giannini. Founded in the Marche region of Italy, an area known for its handcrafted footwear production, the label is a combination of the traditions of the Made in Italy craftsmanship with a modern perspective. Founder Mario Giannini travelled to England in the 70s for an internship with the legendary Handmade Goodyear, leading the brand to combine these techniques and British style with traditional Italian methods. A family-run business passed from generation to generation, Doucal's constantly strives to evolve its designs and material to create a timeless collection of high quality, practical footwear. The brand offers classic styles such as loafers and monk shoes updated with contemporary design.
