I stumbled across the most amazing small local shoe store in Ostuni, Italy, which has been around for 40 years. If you're headed to Puglia, Ostuni is a must, along with this chic reasonably priced sandal store, Erredibi!
Front of the store:
When you walk in, here is what you see. I mean, where do you start? They are all so cute!
Here are the 2 pairs that I chose, and my sweet husband purchased them for me. Looking back, I wish I had bought more for friends & family for gifts.
how can i buy these?
Erredibi has a few stores in Southern Italy. They do have a website, but the cost to ship is twice the price of the shoes........so, use it as an excuse to head to Italy!
Although not quite the same.....some examples below of similar simple flat styles you can get in the USA.
