Size Guide
Form meets function with our best-selling Pia Ballerina flat. Pia is made by hand in Tuscany, Italy from soft Italian nappa leather. Pia features a functional elastic cinch cord, elongated square-toe shape and a deconstructed interior for a bespoke fit true to its ballerina heritage.

Pia runs true to size and you can customize the fit with the functional elastic cord. Pia is a deconstructed shoe and the soft and supple Italian nappa will form to your foot over time.

We use Italian sizing and converting from our Italian sizing is easy: our Italian size 35 is equivalent to a US size 5 and our Italian size 42 is equivalent to a US size 12.

I was inspired to design Pia after watching a ballerina customize her shoes before a rehearsal. I watched as she repeatedly flexed the toe, scored the sole and adjusted and re-adjusted the straps. I designed Pia to be deconstructed and customizable: the fit is adjusted by using the elastic cord (the bow at the front is functional, not just decorative). 

To achieve Pia’s comfortable fit, I sourced soft and supple Italian nappa, added a discreet heel, padded the insole and use a reinforced spinal back. Pia’s elegant silhouette is enhanced by the elongated toe shape.
