  • STREETWEAR LUXURY

    We are not traditional luxury and we are not traditional streetwear. We are a fusion of both. We bring together a contrast of styles, materials and colours to create unique products that stand out from the obvious and are unique to Born Outside Italy customers.

    BORN OUTSIDE ITALY

  • 100% MADE IN ITALY

    Born Outside Italy was proudly born in the United Arab Emirates. Unlike many other luxury brands, we are 100% made in Italy. We use luxury Italian leathers and traditional Italian craftsmanship and methods to produce great quality products that defy the throwaway culture of fast fashion.

  • WE MAKE
    LUXURY COMFORTABLE

    At Born Outside Italy, we are obsessed about comfort. We started this journey thinking: why luxury can't be comfortable? So we have worked on the construction of our sole and the selection of materials with the objective to make the most comfortable luxury sneaker in your collection. We hope you agree that we have succeeded.

  • BORN OUTSIDE IT'S NOT JUST PRODUCTS, IT'S OUR ETHOS

    The uniqueness of the products is synonyms with us wanting to celebrate individuality, self-expression, authenticity and breaking the norms.We aim to appeal to individuals who value this and want to inspire everybody to live life on their own terms.

ALFREDO BANDINI

born outside italy Founder and Creative Executive
Officer

Growing up in Rome, Alfredo was surrounded by endless possibilities, but it was exactly this environment that fueled his desire to do something different. image

From early on, Alfredo didn't just go along with things because someone older or more senior or seemingly more qualified said so. He was all about finding his own path, questioning everything, and making his own choices.

While diving into the fashion scene in Dubai, Alfredo saw how fashion lets us say who we are without speaking. Yet, he also saw how the industry often chased after the latest thing, forgetting what really matters: quality, craftsmanship and creativity.

This sparked the birth of Born Outside Italy, a brand that brings back the focus on craftsmanship, materials and an elegance that doesn't have to shout to be heard.
