Meet a Lower Manhattan Business: Mauri

05/26/2011

Mauri

Mauri, a family-run Italian shoe manufacturer, has just one store in the United States, on Chambers Street in Lower Manhattan.

Mink-lined slippers, stingray-skin boots, and baby crocodile loafers—all hand-made in Italy—are just a few of the models available, and affable manager Serafino Ziccarelli is the man to help you find the right pair.

Ziccarelli routinely works with clients to custom-design shoes and belts. He even pays house visits. “The Hamptons, London, Hollywood—you name it and I’m there” he said.

And while the products are top-rate quality, the prices are significantly lower than expected because all shoes come directly from the factory.

“This store is for everyone,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if you’re an NFL player, a Wall Street banker, or a chic urban three-year-old. If you’ve got two feet, I’ve got something for you.”
