6. Ferragamo Ballet Flats
With a harmonious marriage of glamour and imagination, the Ferragamo ballet flat has enjoyed steady success since its first introduction. Salvatore was a shoemaker of great originality, always experimenting with materials like cork, wood, and cellophane. A favourite of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe in the 1950’s, the shoes are now worn by the well-heeled upper crust, and represent the best in Italian craftsmanship.
