The Desert Shore Sandal — Regular price £350.00

Exclusive to

As Dante travels through the underworld, his footsteps are unprecedented, and his travels through the scraggy landscape are fraught with challenges. When he steps foot on Mount Purgatory, on the "desert shore", he sees light for the first time. 

The Desert Shore Sandal (which comes with a Leone Medallion for strength and courage) is designed to travel with you on your summer adventures; in the winter, slide off the medallion and wear it around your neck: courage all year round. 

Created by hand, in Italy, the minimal black leather strap ties around the ankle. We like to wear them with layers of anklets and a white suit.
