The story

Since our founder Marianna Kontogeorgos was very young - her passion has always been high heels.

She dreamt of having her own unique fashion brand and was fascinated by the craftsmanship.

"I used to run around at my parents' friend’s shoe-factory, fascinated and curious. I was always looking at all the shoes and dreaming that one day I would create my own shoe brand"

It has always been about fashion.

Marianna Kontogoergos wanted to create a high heel that empowers women and make them feel unique.

After years of searching she found the most talented shoe makers in Italy.

In today's world craftmanship and quality matters more than ever. We are passionate about making quality high heels and it takes time to make a shoe by hand.

When a pair of heels are made it's amazing to see all the personal touches and passion that goes into the shoes. It’s fascinating to see all the pieces that are put together to become a special pair of beautiful heels."

Often times we produce less than 50 pairs some times less than 10 pairs.

We don't want you to be like the rest of them... We want you to stand out.







The Name
Maggio is a play of letters of our founders’ first name and family name.

She thought of the name while sitting on her favorite beach in Greece. She wanted something personal, unique, short and easy to remember. That’s how Maggio was conceived.



Handmade in Italy 
Our Factory is based in south of Italy in the region of Naples. The factory is a third-generation family owned business, that has been producing beautiful quality shoes since 1965. 

Their family have been making High Heels for generations and have been specialized in the manufacturing of women shoes for many years. Thanks to the synergy of professionals connected to each other, it is possible to make a high-quality product of luxurious Italian footwear.

Did you know? It takes 30 different components to produce a high heel. That is why it takes time and is very complex to design and produce a high heeled shoe. It takes around 3 months for Maggio shoes to be made passing through a lot of people and collaborators.
