Gino Rossi is a stock exchange listed company operating in the footwear sector, producing and selling top and exclusive quality shoes and accessories. The company was established as a result of close cooperation between Polish and Italian partners who decided to use their experience to create both men’s and women’s leather shoes designed for the most demanding customers. The company was named after one of the six founders, the Italian manufacturer – signor Gino Rossi – who not only owned the company shares, but also gave it his own name.
The company was founded in 1992 in Słupsk. Up to the present day, the registered office of Gino Rossi S.A. and the main Gino Rossi shoe manufacturing factory have been located in this city.
The first Gino Rossi shop was opened in 1994 in Sopot. Now, Gino Rossi has a well-developed sales network of shoe shops in Poland and abroad.
Initially, the company specialized mainly in delivering shoes for men, but soon the company’s range was expanded to offer original and elegant women’s shoes, and top quality leather accessories such as women’s handbags, briefcases and wallets, as well as some practical shoe care products.
