Peter Nappi

gorgeous Italian leather shoes + bags

A gorgeous section of Italian leather goods in the heart of Nashville make this a must-visit Midwest shop. In 2009, Phillip Nappi traveled to Italy to pursue a lifelong dream of learning how to create shoes. It was on that Italian adventure that Phillip discovered his grandfather, Pietro Nappi, was himself a shoemaker along with Pietro’s father and grandfather. From that moment, the Peter Nappi brand was born and with it a commitment to make quality shoes that reflect timelessness, character, and authenticity.

At the Peter Nappi Studio in Germantown, quality is non-negotiable, but equally so is respectable and responsible treatment of the craftsmen and women who make the shoes. The brand chooses to use the highest quality leathers from around the world for both shoes and bags; from Kudu to classic Tuscan vitello, the leather is handled with the utmost care from start to finish.
