In recent years, Friulane, also known as Venetian shoes, have become a real trend in the world of handcrafted shoes. Made of precious fabrics, Venetian shoes have made their way into the refined world of Italian-made shoes, to the point of becoming an icon of the Italian Dolce Vita, much desired all over the world.
Why the famous 'peasant shoes' have become a trend
Friulane shoes originated as 'peasant shoes' handmade by families in Friuli who lived and worked in the countryside. If, in the past, these shoes were made from waste and recycled materials, today's Friulane are made from valuable materials and perfectly embody the typical sophistication of Italian footwear, made of 100% Made in Italy fabrics.
The bursting popularity of Friulane shoes in recent times has triggered an extraordinary trend: reviving past traditions in an elegant key in the world of contemporary fashion. Their versatility makes them suitable for a multitude of outfits: Friulane shoes are perfect to wear to complete comfortable and informal looks, as well as elegant and sophisticated evening outfits.
Friulane shoes are the perfect hybrid between slipper and ballerina, qualifying as the ideal shoe for not renouncing comfort and, at the same time, conforming to the aesthetics and philosophy of the beloved Italian Dolce Vita.
When to wear Friulane shoes?
Friulane shoes can be worn on many occasions, and this should come as no surprise. From their humble beginnings, these shoes are traditionally designed to facilitate a dynamic stride and guarantee comfort and safety. In this sense, they are perfect for accompanying everyday, uncommitted outfits.
