Maloles Shoes

Maloles Antignac launched her shoe line in 2004 with the introduction of her signature ballet flats. The "Georges," a slip-on, and the "Zoe," the pleated flat, are now the signature styles of the brand. She turned over a ballerina shoe and used the pleated effect around the sole as a technical and decorative approach to construction, finishing with a sophisticated bow.

Each piece is made using an artisan shoemaking practice called "Sacchetto," a form of construction that offers flexibility and comfort. The shoe envelops the foot like a glove giving more agility to the shoes which can move in every direction to fit the flexibility of the foot.

The Sacchetto styles are hand-stitched on both the interior and exterior for utmost durability. The gold stitched sole gives a decorative and elegant touch to the shoes .
