Summer has finally arrived, this is the best season of the year to take out from your wardrobe all the pairs of ballet flats you have to create the best combinations of outfits with all the colors you can imagine!
With Porselli the possibilities are endless! You can choose between a range of colors that goes from black to pink to three or more shades of tan…so many colors that choosing becomes so hard that its easier to decide to take more than one pair of each model!
The Brand Porselli was born in 1919 in Milan, when Eugenio Porselli started to create ballet shoes for La Scala Theatre, collaboration with dancers from the famous theatre’s company. He also created the first pair of pointe shoes for the Prima Ballerina.
The first street ballet shoes were born in the 50s, when the young girls in Milan started to wear the Capri Trousers and the “mezzepunte” ballet shoes in the streets. They wanted to look like the Hollywood stars like Audrey Hepburn and other iconic idols of those years, so Porselli created the “Suola Lunga“: a Total Flat shoe with a longer sole, perfect for the streets, and it was a complete success!
Nowadays Porselli has 5 different models of street ballet shoes and its a worldwide famous brand! Howhever they still remain a small factory with less than 30 artisans and everything is handcrafted. Quality and attention to details are the most important things for Porselli; and the waiting period to have your own pair of Porselli shoes is strictly related to the artisanal handcrafting process reasons!
