Custom, Italian Leather Sandals Made in Capri Tradition
March 2, 2015
On the island of Capri, Italy, the 100-year-old tradition of crafting custom, handmade sandals has captured the attention of travelers from around the world. Francesco Pasta, an artisan of these custom Italian leather sandals, has brought this craft, which once could only be discovered in Italy, right to your doorstep.
While he began with solely crafting custom sandals, Francesco has now designed a collection of sandals to share with the world, sold exclusively through Trovati. These sandals are made with the same materials to preserve the quality and unique style of the Caprese sandal. Each sandal is handmade upon order; for this reason, orders take six weeks to complete. With summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to place your custom order.
Francesco works with the finest materials: genuine Italian leather, snakeskin, Swarovski crystals and precious metals. Each sandal is unique hand-stitched without the use of machinery, making these sandals a true one of a kind. The quality of these Italian leather sandals speaks in volumes- each pair is a stunning example of exceptional craft.

Jackie Kennedy's Signature Style
It was Jackie Kennedy Onassis who launched these sandals as a worldwide trend when she stepped onto the island of Capri with a custom, handmade pair.
She was photographed several times while vacationing on the island from 1969-73. Jackie regularly visited Capri where she loved to stroll through the narrow streets without needing to be surrounded by bodyguards. It gave her great pleasure to be among the local people, stopping at a kiosk for a freshly-squeezed limonata or sipping a cappuccino while sitting in Capri’s world-famous square.
Jackie was often seen wearing her signature outfit: pants with a simple t-shirt accessorized with a silk scarf over her head, her large iconic sunglasses and Caprese sandals.
Authentic Capri Sandals
The Via Capri, 34 Italian leather sandals stand out in a crowd, from the brilliancy of the Swarovski crystals to the simplicity of the suede designs. Each pair comes with a certificate of authenticity to verify the genuine Italian leather soles.
