This spring, I had the pleasure of meeting Via Spiga’s Creative Director Paola Venturi during an exclusive runway presentation in New York City. At the event, Paulo spoke about her inspiration behind Via Spiga designs, her creative detailing in the production of each design, and how Via Spiga shoes are made to be so comfortable. (She personally tests each of the designs herself).

Me and Paulo Venturi

Paola Venturi is proud to design for Via Spiga, a brand known for their gorgeous footwear that includes luxurious sandals, platform wedges, and statement heels that are made to be as comfortable as they are fashionable.

This summer, Via Spiga’s ‘Priti’ sandals in nappa leather were a definite go-to in my wardrobe. From the beaches of Aruba, to the pools at some of Las Vegas’ hottest resorts, I put these beauties to the test. Let’s just say they passed with flying colors! I absolutely love how they add a dash of ‘sexy’ to any outfit; from a bikini to a cover-dress to jeans and a tee-shirt.

Via Spiga Sandals

Everywhere I went I received compliments; the gold really catches the sunlight (as you can see in the picture) and the polished metal detail adds a touch of sophistication.

Interesting fact: Established in 1985, Via Spiga is named after the main street in one of the most famed shopping districts in Milan.
