The Fornarina brand’s hip, urban style grabs attention with such bold and sassy designs as calf-high lipstick-red leather boots with buckle details, barely there high-heeled thong sandals, pointy-toed white ankle boots, suede pumps with metallic trim, metallic-gold slides, shocking pink high-tops, black-and-white sneakers in a catchy retro pop pattern, and sleek baby-blue-and-white athletic shoes that rival any top sports brand. What ties it all together? A sensibility that can only be described as a fun and fashion-forward approach to shoemaking that definitely has Fornarina dancing to a different beat.
Surprisingly, the company traces its roots back to 1947 Italy. That kind of firm foundation in good old-fashioned shoemaking only underscores the quality and value to be found in Fornarina’s up-to-date attitude.
