Fifi Venezia launched in 2015 by Kim Fox and Lynn Pyle, two friends based in Newport Beach, California. Their slipper style is based off the traditional 'Venetian Velvet Slipper' of Venice, inspired by Kim’s grandmother and her lifestyle. Fifi Venezia is handmade in Italy. Currently offered in two styles, the ‘Canal’ shoe and the ‘Gritti’ shoe, made of beautiful cotton velvets. The techniques and materials used are of centuries old craft tradition. The Venetians, poverty stricken, would take bicycle tires, cut soles and sew fabric on top to create shoes. The shoe evolved into a work of art. Fifi deals with authentic Venetian craftsman specific to the region mixing old world charm with a true sense of style and versatility.
