Our story

All of PUNTINO's models are hand-picked and ordered directly from the manufacturers, which means that they are truly unique and made in just a few copies. We are passionate about our shoes and bags and we know that you will love them too. Make every step count in PUNTINO shoes.

We started as a small boutique shoe shop in Zagreb with the vision that shoes can be all: master-crafted, quality, beautifully designed and, above all, comfortable.

We found all of that in Italy, where many manufactures produce only few models of each pair.

So, we decided to gather all of those beautiful brands and offer them in our stores.

The Fairytale about PUNTINO name

This is a story of a true shoe lover who became a modern fairytale in just a few years.

Once upon a time, there was a woman who loved her shoes very much. Each of her shoes was so precious to her that she never went to bed until she polished and carefully set aside each pair that she wore that day. But, the shoes weren't made to last. No matter the care she inputted, at some point, the shoes tore apart and she had to throw them away: pair by pair.

She was devastated.

She cried so loud that all of the neighborhood knew exactly when another pair of shoes were ruined and the story about a ridiculous shoe-lover began to spread. Eventually, the story was brought to the attention of a young Italian craftsman. But, he wasn't any type of craftsman, he was a shoemaker.

So he decided to make a shoe for her that will last.

He acquired the finest material and started to work on his piece of art: the most durable, most comfortable, and most stylish pair of shoes in the world. He worked day and night and was so tired that one day a drop of sweat fell on the very tip of a perfectly designed shoe. A small stain at the tip of a shoe made him cry because he ruined his work of art and one single tear fell on the tip of another shoe that was in his lap. Now, both of them had a small dot on them. He poured his soul and craft into this pair and he was convinced he could never make another pair like this, so he packed the shoes and prepared himself for a long trip to his princess.

One week later, he visited the crying woman and gave her his present: true Italian hand-made shoes made to last. If only they weren't ruined with his tears and sweat, they would be truly perfect, the young craftsman thought while presenting her with the box.

The princess opened the present, spread her eyes in wonder, and said: "Puntino!" The young Italian shoemaker recognized the word and started to cry out of joy. "A puntino" in Italian stands for small dot, so she perfectly named his pair of shoes and made them whole again.

The princess never left her perfect pair of shoes again.

Nor the shoemaker.
