Friulana model with a pointed toe, handcrafted in embossed velvet and with a typical stitched rubber sole. From the mountains of Carnia they arrived in Venice and the practicality and originality of Friulane quickly spread. The first to wear these shoes were the gondoliers, careful not to damage the precious lacquer of their gondolas, then the Venetian lords who adopted them daily. And how can you blame them? They are very comfortable!
