Jon Buscemi

BUSCEMI is an American based luxury footwear and accessories brand for men, women and children sold globally in recognized luxury retailers and specialty boutiques worldwide. Founded in 2013 by Jon Buscemi, he committed to his craft in pursuit of the most elegant sneaker— a union of his obsession with the most creative street style and the highest quality and craftsmanship in the world. Shaped by intention, art and pure passion, these handcrafted items are made by artisans in Civitanova, Italy. Every style is made with the finest leathers and high-end embellishments such as 18k gold locks, hand painted edges and stitch applicate which takes 24 hours to construct. The brand thrives through innovation, quality and scarcity, exuding products that amplify the ultimate form of style and self-expressionism. With designs rooted in nostalgia, BUSCEMI takes cues from past experience juxtaposing an urban landscape. The brand’s mission remains the same, to change the way people engage high quality products, exposing fans to new styles and experiences.

Counterfeiting is the selling of knockoff or imitation products, falsely advertised as being made by the Buscemi brand. Counterfeit products are of poor quality, have been linked to organized crime, child labor, and terrorism. Buscemi employs a comprehensive program to combat the creation and distribution of fake Buscemi® products.  Alongside police forces and prosecutors around the world, we regularly investigate and raid factories engaged in the illicit trade, work with customs to seize counterfeits at points of entry, and monitor and enforce our intellectual property rights across the social and digital landscape.

If a product is listed at 70%, for example, the product is most assuredly fake. Likewise, products marked as “on sale” or “cheap” or “discount” are almost certainly not authentic. 

Only buscemi.com and our authorized stockists can guarantee the authenticity of our products.

Numerous websites pop up every day to sell counterfeit Buscemi products. We encourage shoppers to check whether a website is an authorized retailer of Buscemi product by entering the website address in the search engine below.  Bear in mind that while we regularly update this database, it is not necessarily current.  And again, if the website is not Buscemi.com or a high-end, authorized retailer, it’s likely an attempt to rip off the shopper:
