Marco Moreo is a distinguished Italian footwear brand that has become synonymous with quality and style. Premium leather is used across all of its products, for a luxury feel and finish. Marco Moreo’s stamp of authenticity sets this label apart. Handmade in the heart of the country’s shoemaking district, Montecosaro, each piece is a testament to the finest standards of local craftsmanship. The result of this highly refined, time-tested technique is a long-lasting shoe with delicate detail that fits like a dream. A Marco Moreo design is simply unmistakable, and his fierce yet sophisticated style emanates throughout every season’s collection.
The man behind the shoes
Marco remains at the helm of the brand, having spent the last 30 years in the shoe business. As a craftsman himself, Marco learned the art of shoemaking using traditional Italian techniques and customs. Because his father was a shoe agent, his passion for the art developed at an early age. Marco presented his first collection on the stands of his family shoe shop when he was just 20. His background means he knows a thing or two about quality shoes, and he has remained committed to delivering this standard of excellence to a commercial market ever since.
The brand as we know it took off in 1990, when he and an established model maker collaborated to create a collection that truly evoked the Marco Moreo mood. Today, Marco Moreo continues to succeed and prosper. His shoes are a favourite of Irish women, who love how his avant-garde designs make them feel. Marco’s extraordinary creativity makes him a trendsetter in the industry. He is not afraid to take fashion risks, and each piece is designed with one goal in mind: to make the wearer feel amazing. Loud and luxurious with a quintessentially Italian style, Marco Moreo shoes will have you strutting with confidence wherever you go.
Marco Moreo’s range is all-encompassing. For those in need of work shoes, we carry a wide selection of office-appropriate footwear fit for every dress code, from business formal to smart casual. If you’re looking for a weekend shoe suitable for all-day strolling, we recommend a pair of trainers or platform boots. For evening wear and special occasions, enjoy our selection of heeled sandals, boots and courts that will be sure to turn heads.
Here are some of our top picks this AW season.
Marco Moreo tends to include loafer-style shoes in every collection. Loafers are sophisticated and timeless, never going out of vogue. Here are our top picks from our current selection.
We love these deep green patent leather loafers in the Lynn style. Classic with a contemporary twist, these gorgeous slip-on flats look great with a pair of cigarette trousers or a pinafore-style dress.

Every woman needs a pair of leather boots in her life, especially as we approach these colder months. Here are some of our favourites this season.
We adore these grey leather mid-calf boots in the Viola style. They are daring and bold, and their signature wedge sole elongates the silhouette of the wearer.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to styling these all-rounders, but we love them with a pair of slim-fit blue jeans.

Made from the finest black leather that is tough yet lustrous and supple, these boots will keep you supported whatever the weather. What makes these boots so special is their glam-rock style.
