AGL was created in 1958, thanks to the efforts of Piero Giusti, the first of three generations at the helm of this family business.From the Italian region of Marche, the beating heart of shoemaking production, AGL creations went on to conquer Northern Europe and the U.S. with Attilio, who made the glove-like fit the distinctive feature of these shoes designed and made in Italy, at the family-owned company. The brand reputation and worldwide distribution expanded further with the input of the Giusti sisters – Sara, Vera and Marianna – the third generation currently at the helm of what they consider the family jewel, AGL, a legacy created out of tradition, skilled craftsmanship, artistic vocations and memories..
THE GIUSTI SISTERS
