Hand-made by artisans in the luxury shoe making quarter in the Marche region of Italy.

The design journey begins in London where ideas are formulated and sketched onto paper. These designs are expertly made into beautiful pieces using the finest leathers selected from the best tanneries in the world. Michael Azu shoes are made to the highest standard. Regular factory visits are made to check on the production and quality control process.


Originality and Newness

We develop our own bespoke materials from digitally printed leathers to laser cut silk chiffon and hand-crafted embellishments. Materials are folded and manipulated into forms drawn from origami, mathematics or dynamic systems such as the chaos theory. At times very technical in achievement the results are elegant patterns and structures.


Bringing originality and newness to footwear is what our customers expect from Michael Azu.
