Inspired by the 1963 Visconti masterpiece Il Gatopardo (The Leopard), and its depiction of the fall of the Sicilian aristocracy, our May Shoe of the Month belongs to a grander era. It features a diamond shaped cap toe, punched medallion, and fluted throat. It is hand painted in a warm antique walnut colour, and has contrast mahogany slip beading. This is a shoe that will become even more beautiful as it is worn.
