A dream, a true jem one moment away from Piazza Navona! You can make your own leather sandal by choosing colour, hill, style and decoration! A million of possibilities and great fan. A true Roman experience not to be missed. The shop is very crowed...More

If you ever come to Rome don’t miss this little sandal shop in 'the heart of Roma'. The sandals are hand made by Ms. Veronica, a true ‘maestro’ in what she does. Watching her creating the sandals was a real pleasure. If you choose the...More

We first learned of Claudio from a friend from home. He custom makes sandals for you while you wait – molds them exactly to fit your feet. Takes about 20-30 minutes. You can choose simple or bejeweled, and there are lots of individual styles for...More

It takes some time so don’t be in a rush but this is a little gem of a boutique for bespoke jewelled sandals or wedge-style slides - beads, braiding, colours all selected by you. Cost depends on the intricacy of bling involved, but mostly between...More

I love my sandals. Being personally fitted for each sandal, selecting the beads and color means I got exactly what I wanted. They were a bit snug at first but just as told they loosened just enough and are perfect.

I had some fairly simple antique gold chain sandals made here- but the selection of bejeweled treats is amazing. It is very special to have something put together just for you- all in the space of 20-30 mins. I have worn the sandals since and...More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
