Passe-partout holiday models for him and for her

It doesn’t matter where you are or where you’re going, whether it’s the coolest beachside venues or remote villages in the mountains. Whether you’re staying in Italy, as most Italians will to help build up the economy following lockdown, or crossing the border into neighbouring countries. There will always be the occasion to put on a pair of comfortable, fashionable and – most importantly – made in Italy shoes.

For her: from flats to high heels

Don’t leave without a pair of chunky sneakers, perhaps sporting a black and white animalier print – pretty much an evergreen accessory now – like the Jimmy Choo trainers. Low sliders with a square heel by Loriblu, leather sandals with an ethnic feel and ankle straps by Alberta Ferretti, extremely refined anatomic sliders by Marni and, to sparkle in the evening, a sandal with a fine heel and bejewelled ankle straps by Swarovski.

For him: daily urban

If it has to be a sneaker, let it be gritty and designer, like the trainers by Arkistar with a knitted upper and eva foam sole. For the highest comfort we recommend the leather loafer with an espadrille sole by Moreschi, a winning combination this season. If you’re after a more formal look, look no further than Baldinini’s lightweight and woven moccasin. If you’re super sporty, the cordura sandal with anatomic sole by Vic Matié is for you. If you love hiking through the mountains, Grisport is one of the best brands to choose as it fuses technical elements, like activated anti-bacterial carbon layer insoles and waterproof materials, with a contemporary look.
