Our story

Diemme is a high-end brand with a collection that ranges from sneakers to mountaineering boots readapted for city use. The ambition is to produce the highest quality artisan goods with an exceptional level of comfort, with progressive designs as well as sharply executed takes on classic styles.

All Diemme shoes are made in Italy at the Calzaturificio Diemme factory in Onè di Fonte, Veneto. The small town in Northeastern Italy is regarded as one of the most important areas for production and research of performance footwear. Diemme draws on the region’s rich heritage in order to create a modern product built on a foundation of performance-driven production methods. Every production step is performed locally in Veneto.

Founded and managed by brothers Dennis and Maico Signor, Diemme has 25 years of experience within the outdoor and performance segments, as well as producing for brands such as Maison Martin Margiela, Chanel, Bottega Veneta, and cult Japanese brands like Nonnative and Victim.

All parties, from design to development to production, are committed to making a product of the highest quality. As a vertically integrated private company centralized under one roof, Diemme is in a unique position to work with the world’s most high-end leathers and materials.

Every Diemme pair is handcrafted by expert workers at every step of the process. The Italian footwear industry is comprised mainly of small family-owned companies. The combination of this network of small-scale supporting industries, and highly skilled workers, is what makes it possible to produce limited production runs of high quality artisan products.

Sustainability and provenance are key aspects of the Diemme mentality. Buy less, and buy better. Higher material quality, better production and construction quality, made by workers that are rewarded for their skills.

Diemme is sold worldwide in select retail stores.
