Women's Leather Shoes - Brands Making Chic, Quality Footwear
Leather shoe brands are experts at designing footwear that get better with wear, as they mold to your feet perfectly. These footwear labels specialize in shoes made exclusively from leather so you can be sure of unbridled comfort.

Most leather shoe brands on this list are made in Europe, where expert artisan skills flourish. You will find many leather handbag brands in our excellent round-up are also crafted in Europe.

A surprising number of leather shoe brands here specialize exclusively in summer sandals for women. Many, like K. Jacques and Ancient Greek Sandals, are based in hot seaside locations in Europe and are inspired by classic handmade flats worn locally for decades.

Continuing on the European-made theme, French leather shoe brand Souliers Martinez makes its hand-braided shoes in Spain. The American label Freda Salvador, pictured, also specializes in shoes made in Spain.

You can find many quality leather sneakers brands on this list. Most manufacture in the small region of Marche, Italy, where world-class footwear manufacturing still thrives.
