About Us

Il Sandalo Caprese.
Established 1964 – Capri.

OUR MISSION

The Capri sandals are shoes with ancient origins, evolution of the first footwear worn by men to protect their feet from the bad weather and the terrain roughness.
The Sandals are stated and evolved in Roman times and are documented at least twenty different models. The emperor Tiberius, arrived in Capri with wearing a pair of sandals with hard soles and leather strips that are wrapped around the ankle.
After centuries with the evolution of style and technology those same sandals have become the symbol of a whole Italian craftsmanship.
The fifties were for Italy the Golden Age, a period of vitality and love which will be named the La Dolce Vita.
All divas wore Capri sandals: Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Sophia Loren, Anita Ekberg, SorayaJulia Roberts, Jacqueline Kennedy.
The Capri sandals are made with simple and durable materials, enriched with details that give elegance and preciousness, our company was founded in 1964 and over the years has bequeathed the craftsmanship of the sandal, keeping the tradition alive.
