About us

Authentic shoes, not for the ordinary...

124 Shoes provide a unique artisanal experience for shoe lovers, with a hand selected collection of meticulously crafted footwear, leather goods, accessories and fragrances for men and women. Our philosophy is to offer quality original footwear in limited quantities, fitting between luxury brands and mass-market retailers.

Each collection is sourced, curated from Italy's finest footwear manufacturing regions and is crafted by respected second and third generation makers, embracing artisan techniques. The finest materials, sophisticated lasts and traditional techniques combine to give each shoe a unique signature.

With over 50 years of footwear experience, founders Anthony Barbieri, Neville Colaianni and their team of shoe experts provide personalised service and expertise. The purpose built spaces in Melbourne reflect the 124 philosophy: a mix of classicism and modernity. The bold spaces are filled with the scent of real leather, the visual fusion of artwork and vintage furniture, providing a unique sensory experience.

The style and elegance of the first 124 boutique in Russell Place, in the Melbourne CBD, is echoed in the 124 store located in The Emporium Melbourne.
