DESIGN IN VENICE: THE CITY OF WALKING
Levius footwear was born in Venice, a unique city where walking is the main way of getting around. The numerous artisan footwear companies of the Venetian hinterland inspired the idea of shoe designed for the style, habits and needs of those who—like Venetians,—spend a good part of their day walking.
We want to show you the Venice of the lagoon and the mainland—the Venice that you can’t see in a postcard, but that you get to know and discover by walking through the city, one step at a time.
MADE IN ITALY: OLD FRIENDS, NEW IDEAS
Levius was born from an idea of its founder, Marco Dalla Torre, to reimagine the construction of classic Italian footwear.
The many people who work in the Venetian footwear sector are the heart and soul of the Levius brand and its products.
The Polytechnic Footwear of Strà (Venice) is the only shoe design school in the world: an excellent international program that nurtures young creatives, just like Alessio Nocera, who is fundamental to our Levius brand.
