Hidden Wedge Ballet Flat - Varanus Nero, Handmade in Italy

    Size Charts
Her Notes

VIAJIYU's Portofino is a modern almond-toe ballet flat with a hidden wedge to avoid that "too flat" feeling. Flexible, soft and unstructured, this flat features a light elastic trim around the edge of the shoe for the perfect fit. A hidden wedge of 2 cm (0.78 in) under the insole provides additional height and a greater level of support than typical ballet flats. This flat is handmade in Italy from the finest varanus suede.
