During the past few months, we’ve spotted Kendall Jenner and Olivia Palermo in some fabulous shoes by footwear designer Francesco Russo.

Born in the southern Italian region of Puglia in 1974, Francesco Russo developed his understanding of leather goods at Costume National in Milano before moving to Miu Miu.

He eventually relocated to Paris in order to work at what was then Yves Saint Laurent with Tom Ford and Stefano Pilati. After a lifetime honing skills at these reputable brands, Russo launched his eponymous label in 2013.

While brands like Christian Louboutin and Jimmy Choo focus on collections, Francesco has skipped the idea and instead focuses on just a few timeless shapes. He has stated that he owes his love of shoes to his mother and sisters, recalling that “as soon as they wore heels, they immediately turned into magnificent creatures.”

The following chic and ultra-feminine shoes combine his focus on craftsmanship and tradition with the designer’s experimental eye.

You can find them at Farfetch, Net-A-Porter, and Matches Fashion.
