I am a new independent brand and ESMERALDA 105 is from my second small collection of shoes designed by me and hand made in Italy. ESMERALDA is a striking shoe with soft cow leather (from the food chain) and faux snake. My own original artwork is printed onto the leather which adorns the heel, bridging the gap between footwear and art. This style is sleek, creative and made to be worn by positive, fun and fearless women. There is a small gold hummingbird on the sole of every shoe which represent determination, agility and beauty.
