Italian Made Shoes

Bows & Sequins sailing on the Mediterranean Sea from Positano to Capri on the Amalfi Coast. Wearing a pair of lace-up M.Gemi sandals!

Ciao from Italy! I’ve had the best few days exploring the Amalfi Coast… I never want to leave. In fact, I’ve already been trying to figure out how soon I can come back. It’s absolutely stunning! I’m working on a full travel recap; complete with recommendations, travel and packing tips, and a video to document each day. So stay tuned for that! In the meantime, you can follow my adventure on Snapchat and Instagram.

It’s widely known that Italian-made shoes are a step above the rest! While I was shopping in Positano, I actually had a pair of leather sandals made right in front of my eyes, customized to my liking. It was awesome!

I’ve long been an admirer of M.Gemi shoes, but I didn’t own a pair until a few weeks ago. Before the trip, I figured it was time to grab a pair or two before coming to Italy! I fell in love with this lace-up pair for the Amalfi Coast, and this pair for Florence and Rome. And now I’m totally hooked!

I haven’t gotten to Florence and Rome yet, but I’ve been wearing this pair non-stop on the Amalfi Coast. They’re so comfy, too… They didn’t take any break-in time! And not a single blister.

I wanted to hurry up and share this new-to-me brand because they’re currently having their twice-yearly sale! And it ends on Monday, so you’ve got to hurry. Both pairs that I got are currently on sale for under $100! You can’t beat that for Italian-made shoes.

    Very nice lace up flat sandals. Looks like that you are enjoying your trip to Italy. Spent my weekend in my bikini by day and short sundress and heels by night because the East Coast of the USA has been in a heat wave.
