Our love of timeless beauty spans far and deep.

When re-viving the 100+ year old legacy of Peter Nappi, we knew our space needed to be filled with items that had equal amount of soul & history.  So we set off to find pieces with character, pieces that had been as loved as our name sake.  The passion grew as we found treasures from across the globe.  Sharing these gems, we’ve offered them from sale in the Studio and built a following of clients who have the same respect for timeless beauty.  The more we found, the more clients bought and the more projects we got to do.  Today we find ourselves at an interesting crossroad.


“The shoemaker makes a good shoe because he makes nothing else.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Growth is a good thing.

Growth is great thing!  We realize today the only way we can continue to offer the finest footwear is to focus on footwear & accessories, and nothing else.  We all make the biggest impact when our energy is focused.  To be the best, you need to be 100% focused on your trade.

Passion is the fuel for life.

Passion is the most important ingredient for success and happiness.  Harnessing that passion is difficult but necessary.  The Studio will always be filled with beautiful, timeless pieces.  But from now on, the collection will be edited & limited.  We’re taking our excess inventory to Brimfiend, Sept 5-13.  Come by the Studio see what treasures we’ve found!  Or simply enjoy a flashback of projects we’ve loved…

Fathers Day Collezione


Is that a wallet in your pocket, or…a passport holder? We’re happy to see you, Poco Pelle! This special delivery from Italy marks the debut of our original Peter Nappi small leather personal goods: the Meo passport holder, Lia continental women’s wallet, Santo men’s bifold wallet, and Tasso card holder.

Minimal lines paired with subtle stitch detailing and reinforced edging make the collection easy to carry, subtly elegant, and perfectly durable. Each style is available two of our all-time favorite leathers: supple, porcini-brown cavallo and rich, smooth-washed mandorla vitello. Officially available online and in the Studio as of today.

Ti voglio bene.

They’ve had a busy couple of weeks in the Studio, and now they’re ready for their online debut: introducing the Peter Nappi SS15 Bag Collection with two all new styles and a perennial classic in brand new colors.

Our NINA oversized envelope clutch gets the primavera treatment in inky cavallo Nero leather, polished Fumare, and supple Porcini, joined by the classic SIENA handbag in Nero and Fumare. The all-new roomy, carry-it-everywhere JEMMA tote makes its first appearahce in PorciniPetrole, and Nero, alongside the AIDA cross-body mini in Fumare and Nero.

It’s the perfect antidote to cabin fever: throw on a scarf, pack your favorite new bag, and get out there. Spring will get the hint.

Ti voglio bene.


After a busy preview week in the Studio with lots of packing, checking in, trying on, and strenuous product testing at the Spring Launch event (via mingling, possibly dancing, and balancing plates of prosciutto while enjoying some bubbly–we were thorough), Collezione SS15 is officially available online.

The collection features perennial favorites in new leathers, including the Rocco Porcini for men, in supple cavallo leather from a 125-year-old Italian tannery, and newcomers like the Isabella lace-up and Calvina short ankle boot (already one of our all-time best selling styles) for women

Happy shopping, and let us know where your boots take you…we love seeing where you roam, from Tuscany to Tennessee and everywhere in between

Ti voglio bene.



Good news: if you thought you had to wait til March for the official “first day of spring,” you can ditch that day planner, switch to the seasonal fashion delivery schedule, and end winter next Thursday when our new Spring collection arrives from Italy. 

Shrug off the February chill and join us at the Peter Nappi Studio on the 12th, from 6-8pm, to toast the new SS15 collection with food, drinks, music, friends, and a boot raffle benefiting TPAC‘s arts education program. The grass is green (on our center table, anyway), Italian chocolates will be abundant (come on, it’s almost Valentine’s Day, right?), the vinyl will be spinning, and you’ll get an exclusive chance to shop the new styles before they’re available online.

You made it through winter. Time to celebrate.

Ti voglio bene.


This year, Sports Illustrated held its Swimsuit Issue Event in Nashville for the first time. Jessica Gomes, Samantha Hoopes and Hannah Ferguson visited us in the Studio to talk fashion and giant boots.

Ti voglio bene.
