Almost like being barefoot: The Sacchetto ballerinas by Marta Ray, Italy.
Pressure-free fit with optimum heel grip.
Weighing just 100g (in size 4), the ballerinas are barely noticeable when you wear them. Small elasticated straps on the left and right of the heel prevent your foot from slipping out at the back. The pointed shape looks elegant and feminine, and the delicate pastel shades are bang on-trend.
The finest leather in Sacchetto style.
The soft nappa leather lining is stitched like a “bag” (“Sacchetto” in Italian) and sewn to the sanded, velvety nubuck leather upper. It replaces the insole at the front of the shoe. This method makes the ballerinas particularly flexible and makes them as comfortable as traditional moccasins.
The Italian brand is still an insider’s secret here.
The small, fine shoe collection from the former model, Marta Ray, can be found in her own shops in Rome and Florence and in selected boutiques.
Upper, lining and insole: Leather. Outsole: Tunit.
