Dorothy’s Ferragamo pumps

Curiously enogh, Dorothy’s iconic red slippers actually are nothing but a pair of Ferragamo pumps. Salvatore Ferragamo, born in 1899, was a great Italian shoe designer. He actually spent some time in the United States and later returned to Italy. His business was not entirely successful for a while, but by the 1950s the company was very well established. In Florence, there is a museum of shoe design, dedicated to the memory of Salvatore Ferragamo.
