Di Bianco Gallo, "White Rooster" in Italian, is derived from the founder’s family name and the Rooster from a family crest from his Celtic ancestors. Some may have taken notice that the Di Bianco Gallo Rooster, unlike tradition, actually faces west. This was a not so subtle message delivered by the founder’s Father, who engaged a jeweler to make a gold ring with the errant Rooster, that his second son needed to fall in line. Instead of conforming, Di Bianco Gallo has always looked to do things in its own fashion.
The Gallo Bianco footwear collection is a compilation of classic men’s shoes with subtle uncommon details. Made in the South of Italy in the hills outside of Naples, third generation artisans use the best calf skin leather available to create beautifully hand burnished footwear. Classic models are combined with modern colors to offer an understandable and affordable alternative. Blake constructed, Di Bianco Gallo comes in a D/E width last.
