Milan, the home of Prada and Versace, is a vibrant city where high fashion and street style meet. Where better to shop for shoes than the undisputed home of style? Since Milan is the hub of both men’s and women’s fashion, you’re sure to find many of your favourite luxury brands here. From timeless elegance at Santoni to celebrity trends with Casadei, here are the best places to find luxury Italian shoes. Check them out as soon as you hop off your Milan transfer from the airport!

Style at Santoni

Fashions may come and go, but quality craftsmanship is always in style. When shopping at Santoni’s chic modern store, you benefit from techniques refined over decades, which work in perfect harmony with Italian innovation. From luxury sneakers to classic leather lace-ups, workmanship and design are at the heart of this family brand. To take some of the magic back home, pick up one of their specialised shoe care kits. The carefully selected tools, presented in a leather case, will help you maintain your Santoni shoes for years to come.

Dolce & Gabanna

Dolce & Gabbana is an Italian brand that is recognised worldwide for its bold Italian style. The Dolce & Gabbana store on the famous Via della Spiga in Milan does not disappoint: its patterned wallpapers and beautiful soft furnishings make it look like a gentleman’s club. The iconic duo – Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana – came together in Milan in 1985, and their exciting vision for Italian fashion is present throughout the store. This season’s women’s shoes are bold and quirky, with vivid patterns, patches, and prints in striking designs.

Celebrity Favourite Casadei

To get that red-carpet look, head to Casadei, a firm favourite of Hollywood stars and Milan’s fashion elite. The brand’s founder, Cesare Casadei, opened his first showroom in the city in 1990 after inheriting a love for the shoe business from his artisan parents. With the help of advanced technology, Casadei produces each model in-house. From the thrillingly slim techno-blade stilettos to bejewelled suede flats, the shoes, like the store, are sophisticated and exciting.


Let’s go back to the star-studded Via della Spiga for my final recommendation: Rivolta. Established in 1883, this store offers a bespoke service, drawing on traditional cobbling techniques and the best of modern technology. Rivolta specialises in simple shapes that are rigorously made, but has lighter, laid-back offerings in its Moccassini Aria and Marine collections. Their smaller women’s line, 1883 Heritage W, revisits men’s classics and the playful collection of loafers, Aria W, comes in a range of beautiful shades and models.

How To Get There – and Back!

Upon landing in the city, the most efficient way to get to your first meeting – or first shoe shop – is a pre-booked and private Milan transfer with Shuttle Direct. With several pick-up options, simply choose the one that best suits you. Without any fuss or delays, your professional and friendly driver will deliver you promptly to your destination. And, when your suitcase is full of beautiful new shoes, you can rely on your pre-booked Milan transfer to get you back to the airport safely and with plenty of time to declare your extra baggage!
