MARTINIANO is a US brand of handmade shoes, founded in Buenos Aires, Argentina, by Martiniano Lopez Crozet. The brand is known for traditional craftsmanship combined with simple, modern and timeless style.
Martiniano Lopez Crozet was born in Bahía Blanca, Argentina, and studied art in California.
MARTINIANO adheres to an aesthetic centered on simplicity, economy, austerity, rusticity, and understated elegance. Having the shoe hand made wasn’t a decision. This is how most quality shoes are made in Argentina today. With time Martiniano began to understand the luxury that this implies: each pair is passed from hand to hand, and the slight quirks and anomalies that arise—from the natural qualities of the material and the craftsmanship—are embraced as essential to the uniqueness and elegance of the object.
