Envisioned in the South of Brazil in 1985, the Cecconello family had what seemed like a quite reasonable vision: To produce 10 or so pairs of shoes a day with an attention toward detail, decadence and the importance of ethically sourced materials. What no one could foresee was the force this simple vision would have on the fashion markets of the region, the nation and the world. Now producing 2,500 pair of their iconically aesthetically chic and environmentally friendly footwear daily, Cecconello has set their sights squarely on introducing even more of their particularly pleasing product to Miami’s streets, with a twin push of increased e-commerce and some poignantly placed pop-ups. Without a doubt, we will be seeing many a pair of these fiercely fluid and feminine shoes inhabiting more and more of our city’s boardrooms and ballrooms; Cecconello-Shoes.com.
