About

a Piedi was founded by Mariam in the summer of 2009 as a flat footwear specialist, launching with a range of affordable, luxury, flat leather Sandals. The offering was extended soon after with the introduction of Ballet Flats followed by other styles of flat shoes. 
 
about Mariam..
"My grandfather ventured in to the leather trade decades ago. This was continued and extended by my father, essentially catering to Italian and Spanish fashion houses.
a Piedi therefore represents the third generation of a family run business specialising in luxury leather fashion, accessories and tannery. 

"I took a career break from working at investment banks in the City to have a family. Having three children (now four) and wanting to be the one doing the school runs, gave rise to what I felt to be a natural progression of the family business: a Piedi (meaning “on foot”) - home to luxury flat leather footwear. Why only flats? Easy, timeless, elegant and laidback. And of course, they are all I've worn since motherhood kicked in!

"a Piedi was launched during the economic downturn in '09 and with that in mind, I chose to offer an affordable range of flats without compromising on the level of craftsmanship and materials used. The focus on the designs is classic with a contemporary twist and all footwear is constructed fully in the finest leathers: uppers, lining, insoles and soles, while embellishment, other fine fabrics and colour also play an important role in the design ethos.
