There is hardly an industry where people are so inextricably paired to their business as in the fashion industry. Piero Oliosi and his sons are the owners of the A.S.98 brand and the soul of the renowned Italian company Olip. Headquartered near Verona in Colà di Lazise, the company has been successful since it started in the 1980s. The factory’s output of 6,000 shoes per day also makes it one of the most productive. Short distances and quick reaction times on new design suggestions are some of the outstanding strengths of their factories. It’s not just the numbers that reflect the quality of this brand, rather the special design features and careful selection of materials that set new industry standards. A.S.98’s materials are all imported from Italy because only selected tanneries can produce the distinctive leather that is characteristic of the brand.
