La Botteguccia da Giovanni

Map
Via T. Genoino, Amalfi,

On any given day, this renowned cobbler’s shop along a sloping, stone lane in the village of Positano on the Amalfi Coast stands ready to create custom leather sandals for patrons as it has for nearly 100 years. Customers may design them from scratch, choosing color, shape, and style, or select a pair from a variety of ready-made shoes. Although men’s shoes are available, the shop clearly specializes in female footwear, with strappy, bejeweled designs in soft, blond leather that frequently show up on the feet of celebrities.
