Corso Como / Ciao Bella Footwear-Spring 2012

 words/images Judith Ecochard

Some of the nicest (and affordable-yippy) pumps we saw---for Spring 2012 come courtesy of Brazil.....

Corso Como to be exact.

Corso Como has a few labels under its moniker but all are mindful of the comfort way of walking-meaning...soft flexible leather soles, breathable linings, and quality materials made to endure.

...Ballasox® flexible/stretchy flats in great collectable,  summery colors..start at about $60

pretty ribbon closires

perforated leather in metallic-nice

Corso Como pumps...our fav and priced in the mid $100's...

Sandals...for streets or the sandy beaches...
footbed---has perforations to whisk moisture away

wedges-roped-natural fibers go well-with patent/leather uppers


 Another fun flirty line of comfy footwear, CIAO  BELLA has adorable prints ...and are inexpensive-given the quality with flats priced below $50.

 Sandals and flats with native/ethnic woven fabric uppers-that are comfortable and very on trend for Spring 2012.
fiber footbed-is surprisingly comfy
Both Corso Como and Ciao Bella shoes are widely available online
