Details about 11 WL
No less than Audrey Hepburn started a style revolution with her cropped trousers and delicate ballet pumps. Designed at the close of the 19th century to resemble ballet slippers, these comfortable slip-on shoes have become a women’s footwear staple.
Pointed ballet pumps in dark brown
Blake-stitched and carefully assembled in Tuscany, this dark brown women’s ballet pump from our “Italian Line” represents true craftsmanship. Its shaft consists of smooth, fully-dyed calfskin. Only a single detail breaks up the clean lines of this comfortable slip-on shoe; namely, a delicate shaft piece edge seam at the heel. Moreover, this model has been made using a narrowly tapering last, which lends the classic ballet pump design a modern touch.
Incidentally, the lining, protective insole, and outsole are all also made from leather. A protective rubber sole and rubber heel tip help make these dark brown ballet pumps for women suitable for every day wear.
Upon first glance, No. 11 WL evokes a classic court shoe. However, this dark brown women’s ballet pump in supple, gleaming calfskin is considerably more comfortable, light, and flexible than its high-heeled counterpart. Its elegant design is perfect for making a graceful entrance à la Audrey Hepburn, in business and leisure contexts alike.
The ballet pump is a classic, comfortable slip-on shoe similar to a ballet slipper. Known for its flat sole and wide opening at the instep, it was developed towards the end of the 19th century, and first became popular in the mid-20th century.
This shoe’s upper consists of premium, fully-dyed and medium-soft calfskin. The technical term for this type of leather is "Italian calf". It is distinguished by its even grain and soft grip.
The models in this collection are the products of traditional Tuscan handicraft. These dreamy, Blake-stitched shoes are made from the finest leathers, and boast truly stylish designs. 100% made in Italy.
