Details about 40 WL
These patent leather ballet pumps in black from our »Italian Line« are part of a storied, although relatively young, footwear tradition. While the first ballet pumps were already in circulation at the end of the 19th century, the women’s slip-on shoes we still know and love today first became popular in the mid-20th century. Around this time, the Hollywood starlet Audrey Hepburn became known for wearing them, and in doing so started a lasting fashion trend.
Graceful flat shoes—black ballet pumps in patent leather
These ballet pumps in black are made of fully-dyed calfskin, and undecorated apart from a fine seam at the heel. The lining, insole, and outsole are made of premium calfskin that has been left undyed. A gleaming polyurethane film that has been applied to the grain side of the leather creates a glassy visual effect.
These elegant ballet pumps in black patent leather are a must-have for every fashion-conscious shoe lover. Their slender shape combines best with slim-cut jeans, skirts, or dresses. When worn with wide-legged trousers, their graceful look is all but lost.
Ballet pumps are classic slip-on shoes that are reminiscent of ballet slippers. They are characterized by a flat sole and a wide opening at the instep. Developed towards the end of the 19th century, these comfortable slip-on shoes 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.
