Neighbourhood: Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.

Best boots ever, great quality, and service.
Nov 2019
The people inside were very friendly and helpful. I ended up buying a pair of boots. The leather is beautiful, nice and soft, they were a little snug at first, and have formed beautifully to my feet. While not cheap, they were certainly not terribly expensive. If I had known how much I would like the boots, I would have bought several pair because I am hard to fit. I have to go back!

PayPal Scammers - AVOID AT ALL COSTS
Jul 2019
While they appear to sell a decent shoe, they have shady business practices and know how to use PayPal to swindle you out of your money. Avoid at all costs.

Mentre sembrano vendere una scarpa decente, hanno pratiche commerciali losche e sanno come usare PayPal per truffarti dai tuoi soldi. Evitare a tutti i costi.

Fantastic service and quality shoes!
Oct 2018 • Solo
Walked in after passing it twice in two days and had no regrets. Service was excellent and you knew how knowledgeable they were, when they could tell you that you looked in-between sizes and that the shoes would feel tight initially because I came in wearing sport shoes, but not to worry as the calf leather would warm up and all would be fine. And they were absolutely right, five minutes into wearing the shoes, the initial tightness was gone. Very pleased with the workmanship and quality of the shoes bought and will definitely come back or buy from their online store. The only unfortunate thing is they don’t do sales tax refunds.

Old fashioned shoe fitting lives! Bought a pair of beautiful boots that I could never find in USA and the owner helped me find my perfect fit ( not easy) . The team there were fun and authentic and the prices great for that level of quality leather item.

Beautiful, Italian-made shoes
Jun 2018 • Friends
Wandering into this store by chance led to one of the best shopping experiences while in Florence! Window shopping led to real shopping, and with me leaving with 2 new pairs of amazing, beautiful, quality, shoes. Everyone working there was super friendly and helpful, not to mention knowledgeable of the product. I've since worn the shoes a few times and they are comfortable and so stylish! Check out this store if you are looking for quality made leather goods with excellent service. I'm happy to know my size so that I can order online in the future!

great Italian shoes, at fair prices
Jul 2017
This store was recommended by one of the locals, and I was not disappointed. Plenty of conservative mens shoes to choose from, in all the usual colours and patimas, at a fair price. Remember, when it comes to leather goods, you usually get what you pay for. Except for the big names of course, like Prada, Gucci, etc. where, in my humble opinion, you get totally ripped off. But at Antica Cuoleria you get a great quality shoe, at a fair price. Along with very knowledgable and attentive customer service.

Great shoes!
Dec 2016 • Couples
I wanted to buy leather shoes in Florence- the hotel recommended Via del Corso as a street for quality leather shoes at reasonable prices. Antica Cuoieria was exactly what I was looking for! You could tell the quality of their products as soon as you walked in the store. The staff was very friendly and helpful and wanted me to take my time to ensure I bought the right shoes (not pushy). I was encouraged to try on as many pair of shoes (even those different from my normal style) that I wanted as they wanted me to be happy with my purchase. I purchased two pairs of shoes (both very Italian looking)- flat shoes and heels (I don't wear heels too often). I've since worn the heels twice since being home and they are great. I can't wait to wear my flats. So happy with my purchase here!

Excellent service, price and selection.
Aug 2016
My wife and I both stopped here whole strolling down the street, and to our surprise the store had several very authentic styles and at very reasonable prices. Quite honestly, aside from the locally made shoes, the best thing of the store is the service. Gianni (maybe is the owner?, not sure) helped us without rushing us while we tried several pairs of shoes.

Worth the Visit
Feb 2016 • Business
This local shoe/leather store was suggested by a local friend of mine. I was impressed with the quality of shoes and their prices...albeit at the time they were having an end of season sale. Staff was helpful, knowledgable and professional. If you are looking for a non mass produced product, locally made, make sure you stop by.
