From the origins to the present day

Throughout its history, production has gone through periods of economic, creative, management and expansion crises, but the close bond of the Cavallini family and their strong ties to everything the company stands for have succeeded at every turn in reviving what is now a great and solid world-renowned company, keeping it alive and always poised for change.

It is a fast-moving company,which follows the pace and evolution of women over the decades, setting the tone for female style, each time focusing on the need for expression through an object as historically important as the shoe. Throughout the generations, it stays abreast of and anticipates the language of fashion,with every step to express a modern, enterprising woman in step with the times.

At Cavallini, we understand that women need to be comfortable at all times of the day. Whether at work, in her free time or on a special occasion, our footwear meets every woman’s need for comfort, making her feel at ease in every situation.

Comfort goes hand in hand with elegance and we understand how important it is for a woman to wear unique, special designs that leave her free to be herself on any occasion.


When everything was about to stop because of the pandemic, our shoe factory had a real revolution, especially in the mental aspect.

Everything was grinding to a halt, but we didn’t want our message to stop.

This need, the continuous evolution and the desire to take this reality to a new level that catalyzes all the principles, values, and feelings of the shoe factory, has given birth to a Brand that expresses our craftsmanship in a more direct and close way to women.

That’s how the Cavallini brand was born in 2020.

It is a brand that makes unique footwear designed and handmade by expert craftsmen, distributed directly through online shops and showrooms.

All of this is aimed at giving voice to our idea of a woman who is firm and enterprising, refined and elegant.
