The Luxury between Formal Design and Inspiration from Tradition
The Pakerson brand has always been associated with luxury and style in a very special way for men's footwear.
Formal design shoes crafted from the highest quality leathers by specialized Florentine artisans who preserve the mastery and characteristic tradition of the Tuscan lands. They are exclusive works destined to a timeless elegance with a refined profile.
Founded in the early 1920s, Pakerson has never stopped focusing on its greatest resources: quality and meticulous craftsmanship.
The Origins and Growth
Pakerson's success story began in 1923 in the town of Cerreto Guidi, one of the most beautiful villages in Tuscany, just a stone's throw from Florence, Tuscany's capital city of art, where Giulio Brotini opened a small artisan workshop.
"We are in the Tuscan countryside and my great-grandfather began as a shoemaker, creating beautiful shoes to go to Sunday mass," says Gabriele Brotini, great-grandson of the founder and now at the helm of the company with his sister Elisa.
The artisan workshop goes on for several years, conquering, thanks to the high quality of the products, also the local nobility.
In the post-war period the small artisan workshop became an industrial reality with Giulios's son, Luciano, at the forefront. The trademark was born in 1958 in a rather curious way. Luciano, a fond lover of Parker pens, would like to call the company Parker & Son, but due to a trivial transcription error, the name Pakerson was forged. Despite the misunderstanding, the novelty was immediately appreciated and was received with complete satisfaction.
After conquering the Italian market, the company begins to enter several foreign markets achieving the highest standards. Following the economic crisis and the Russian market, the company had to undergo internal restructuring. Today, Pakerson is embarking on a new impetus to spread the pleasure of excellence through the quality of its noble leather and the skill of its artisans.
"There is a desire to move forward and continue to create excellence that is linked to the territory, the brand and history"
