The Pollice Lee brand was founded by Francesco Pollice. Born and raised in Napoli, Italy, Francesco comes from a prominent shoe making family. He is the ultimate shoe savant. Beginning at 9 years of age under the tutelage of his grandfather, Francesco crafted his first pair of shoes. Followed by an apprenticeship in shoe design and production, he acquired the essential skill set to advance his own career. In 2017 Francesco moved to Los Angeles equipped with the vision to launch his debut Sp/Su17 Collection.
Pollice Lee is a luxury shoe brand culminating from Francesco's Italian heritage and exhibits his unwavering passion and love for the art of quality Italian craftsmanship providing fashionable footwear for the modern discerning woman.
Adhering to the time-honored tradition of meticulous Italian craftsmanship, the Pollice Lee design process begins with handmade sketches. Each design is then hand-crafted using the finest jewels, embroidery, accessories, and leathers including Cuoio calf-skin, leather insoles, Swarovski crystals and mirror gold heels.
