You can even mix colours and materials, get in touch and we will design the unique Porselli style you dreamed of.
E. Porselli ballerina shoes have been hand-made in Milan (Italy) since 1919! As we fell in love with their heritage and style, we decided to start an exclusive collaboration and introduce their oh-so-elegant shoes to our customers. Their artisan quality is legendary and so is their comfort.
To learn more about the Porselli House you can read the exclusive interview of Vanna Porselli on our blog.
“Porselli – the real McCoy – when it comes to ‘ballerinas’: Porselli is one of those great Italian family success stories that dates back to 1919, when Eugenio Porselli, a ballet pointe shoe manufacturer in Milan, founded his small specialist company. The company is still owned and directed by the newest generation of the Porselli family and continues to manufacture the best footwear for ballerinas as well as a range of super supple and durable ballerina pumps for the general consumer. Unlike your average ballerina pump that you can find just about anywhere from the supermarket to the corner store, these stunningly designed shoes fit like a glove and last for years. They are hand finished and stitched to produce what ultimately even the pickiest ballerina would fall in love with… Perfect footwear for tucking away in your travel pack or handbag, and the most comfortable way of stylishly pirouetting through the city!” (Source: Shoes and Views)
“Porselli ballet flats are Milanese and almost a hundred years old, this brand is the first choice of the Scala dancers and the trendy Italians… Aaaah I am such a sucker for the perfect ballerina” and “Before leaving Milan, I went to Porselli… usually on Thursday they are already out of stock. So you have to choose your pair amongst the remaining ones… It’s a little bit annoying but it’s pretty deliciously authentic.” (Source: Garance Doré)
“Today's consumers reward products linked to notions of authenticity ("the piece has a history"), quality ("this is a lasting") and timelessness ("the is a classic piece")… the consumer will in all likelihood… rapidly adorn its feet with Porselli… that is totally banking on its 'timeless' credentials…” (Source: Chloe Collects)
"Your Porselli exclusive ballerina shoes are marvellous ... I cannot wait for the sunny weather to show up ... your shoes are stunning!" (Milan-based repeat customer)
“Porselli shoes are incredibly comfortable and the colours are wonderful... I had no idea they were so sought after; I feel very lucky to have my pair! I also agree with others… Porselli is the new fashion classic.”
"These are the best ”ballerine” in the world, still made in Italy, I think I have at least 10 pairs. Price is lower than luxury brands and the quality much better."
"Porselli now and forever. The shape, colors and fit are amazing, some of the best I have ever worn. I was told that many stars wore them religiously. I am sold! Dance companies really know feet and use ultra soft leather. So far, I think that the Porselli ballerinas are the most stylish though. I love when dance companies produce street shoes."
