About Buttero

Similar to AG, where father and sons work side-by-side, Buttero is a family affair. The calzature was founded in 1974 by Mauro Sani in Tuscany, Italy, and is now run by Mauro and his three sons.

Buttero’s quality is best experienced when you first open the shoe box and inhale the perfume of Tuscan vegetable-tanned hides produced the old fashioned way, with passion and love.
