Sandal season is afoot, and if you’re wrinkling your nose at the pool slides flooding the market, you might delight in the fact that Canfora has hit our shores. For the first time, the handmade embellished sandals from Capri (Jackie O often wore the chain-linked K style when she went sunning there with her sister Lee Radziwill) retail online and in Neiman Marcus, rumored to be planning a stand alone store at Hudson Yards.
Until that happens, you can opt to measure your feet using Canfora’s online guide. Unlike in the pre-Internet age, when artisans in Via Camerelle would trace around customers’ toes for a custom fit (they would only close the shop for Miss Onassis, though), now you can just send away for a pair—it takes about one week to arrive. And while that may seem like a bit of a wait for some, you can be sure it’ll last for more than a season. Which is more than we can say for pool slides.
