AGL RAINBOW SHOE BY THE GIUSTI SISTERS

agl

These lace-ups by sisters Sara, Vera and Marianna Giusti are a must-have. Each pair is an icon of “Made in Italy” craftsmanship— coveted by women for their chic, minimal and comfortable design. The sisters seek to surprise by pairing the Rainbow Shoe with a palette sole where colors mix and blend, an artistic design influenced by expressionism. Fashion is an artistic outlet for the Giusti sisters, as apparent in their latest design.
