CAPRI SANDALS

Talking about sandals means talking about the first type of footwear worn by mankind. The ancient type of footwear known   as “calzari” was worn to protect the feet from bad weather and dangers and only acquired fashionable details at a later stage. 
The earliest testimony of the existence of sandals dates back to the ancient Egypt. 
Historical and iconographic sources indicate that the Romans already boasted about twenty styles each leading to different trends and fashions. Having decided to retire to the island of Capri during his final years, Tiberius Emperor reached the island wearing a pair of heavy-soled sandals with leather straps wrapped around the ankle.
