The original Capri resort shoe is making a comeback. Transcending its utilitarian origins as a humble fisherman’s shoe, Zabattigli di Capri in the Dolce-Vita Sixties was adopted by artists, politicians and celebrities holidaying on the island of Capri, including Gianni Agnelli, Jackie Kennedy and JFK jr., Audrey Hepburn and Ingrid Bergman. A look and feel befitting the freespirited lifestyle of the island of Capri.Zabattigli re-launched as a resort shoe in 2011, reinforcing the artisan message of unique craftsmanship, insisting on the handmade-in-Capri label. An improved version of the original Zabattigli shoe, with inner heel cushion padding, has seduced a new generation of glitterati, from George Clooney and Leonardo di Caprio to Scarlett Johansson and Italian VIPs.
The Zabattigli shoe is handmade in the village of Anacapri by trained artisans, supervised by the maestro, Costanzo Ruggiero. True to tradition, more than fifty steps are needed to craft a Zabattigli shoe. Its premium, breathable materials include GOTS-certified organic cotton, natural bamboo, silk shantung, and refined Japanese cottons. In addition, the soft inner lining and rigorous transversal stitching offer both comfort and durability.
