The name brand, "La Scarpetta di Venere”, was born in 2009 and takes its name from an orchid, Cypripedium calceolus. The name of the genus comes from the Greek 'Kýpris' (Aphrodite, the goddess of Cyprus) and 'pédilon' (sandal), due to the shape of the lip, similar to a slipper. It is endemic to the central Apennines, very rare to find especially in Italy. This rarity inspired us, what we wanted to create was a shoe as beautiful as a flower but rare, almost unique.
We are certainly not an ordinary company, we love to create a story around each shoe and share the idea that goes from our head to our hands, up to your feet.
You will find our brand only in “La Scarpetta di Venere” stores and website, because I have chosen to manage the production and distribution process entirely, to ensure maximum quality at an affordable price.
