To strengthen the values of ‘Made in Italy’, an integral part of its DNA, Golden Goose takes a strategic step towards the vertical integration of its supply chain by acquiring the company that had been producing the Veneto brand’s footwear for seven years. Italian Fashion Team, founded in 2007, is an important reality in the Apulian territory, which in 2021 produced 700,000 pairs of shoes for well-known Italian brands. Michele Zonno, founder and CEO of IFT, will continue to lead the company in order to maintain strong ties with the local community of Casarano and to manage the new development phase. The Golden Goose brand was born in 2000 and quickly established itself in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas, with over 160 direct stores and a strong online and wholesale distribution.
