Canfora of Capri has been outfitting elegant women in its handmade summer shoes since 1946, when shoemaker Amedeo Canfora opened his own little shop on the stunning Italian island of Capri. Constructed from genuine goat or calf skin, Canfora’s lightweight and ultra-feminine thong sandals, flip flops and other footwear designs feature embellishments such as glittering jeweled straps and metallic details to make your next beach stroll glamorous and dramatic. Style icon Jackie Kennedy adored Canfora of Capri’s sandals so much, that she sometimes paid midnight visits to the brand's original storefront — still located, after many decades, in tony Via Camerelle.
