Salvatore Ferragamo, is the most famous Italian shoemaker in the world. At the age of 9-years-old, in just one night, little Salvatore, who left school in the third grade, created his first pair of shoes with white cardboard. He had clear ideas and wanted to become a shoemaker. He was a success due to the comfort of his shoes. He studied the anatomy of the foot and patented a system of putting thin layers of steel in the sole of the shoe in order to provide arch support. Salvatore Ferragamo became the epitome of Italian luxury, and a Hollywood favorite during the glamorous 1920’s. The brand is still revered today for its handcrafted shoes, accessories and fragrance.
