How the Granddaughters of AGL Shoes’ Founder Are Making Waves in Shoe Fashion
These days it’s hard to find a great pair of shoes for a decent price – let alone something that fits your personality and comfort level. But that is exactly what Attilio Giusti Leombruni, known by many as just AGL Shoes, provides for its customers.
In 1958 Piero Giusti set out to build a shoe brand that would be known for its style, comfort, and durability. And just like his shoes, his company has withstood the test of time – now run by his three granddaughters.
Meet the Sisters
Sara is the oldest of the three sisters. She is the Sales Manager and since 2011 has been director of the AGL commercial office. She looks forward to working with her sisters and feels it the best change to the AGL company. Vera is the middle sister. She is the Communication Manager and the Creative Director. She loves the company but also enjoys spending time with her children. Marianna is the youngest of the three. Early on she loved shoes and designing them was her favorite part. From a young age, she began drawing and designing shoes. Today, she is the designer for AGL And Piero himself stays on as the Product Manager
A Modern Shoe
The three sisters taking over the company seem to be just what AGL Shoes needed. For the first time this company that specializes in women’s shoes is run by women. Combining the label’s heritage with their own modern ideas, the sisters have updated AGL’s diverse collection of handcrafted flats which includes moccasins, oxfords, ballerinas, brogues, Mary Janes, and sturdy walking boots – and women all over the world couldn’t be happier.
The Best Part
The best part about these shoes? You can actually afford them. AGL prides itself on its long-lasting connection to very select suppliers. After doing business with some of them since the early 60’s, they are able obtain top notch leathers and materials with substantial savings to cost – which they pass along to the rest of us.
