Straight from the Italian Riviera These handmade shoes made us ahh and ooh! They are a super gorgeous tone of pale pink called 'cipria'. These velvet strapped sandals are so incredibly chic with a caftan, lightweight summer pants and/or tunics. Slip your foot into the strap and pullover the heel strap to hold your foot in place. the leather gets softer in time and the light the velvet bring is just so pretty and perfect.
