  • Current company Velasca
  • Location Italy
  • Industry Retail

Velasca sells high quality Italian-made men’s leather shoes and accessories at a third of the price of competitors by cutting intermediaries and selling direct-to-consumer. As an omnichannel player, Velasca sells both online and offline through its three “bottegas” in Milan, Rome, and Turin. These shops allow customers to interact with the brand, try on a size and then order their desired color and style “online” at the store and receive it at home within 24 hours. The company recently closed a Series A round and will use the funds to open more locations, including London and Paris.
