When Dante enters the ‘selva oscura’, he is lost, physically and metaphorically. The word ‘oscura’, translating as both dark and confused, beautifully evokes the position he is in. The trees are weathered and the rocks are craggy. The buckle is a representation of this dark place, transformed into the Night Cap Sandal, to transform a something melancholy into something beautiful. Wear the Night Cap Sandal with a slip dress and layers of Alighieri anklets, for date nights and beyond.

The Night Cap Sandal handmade in Milan, with 100% navy calf suede. The heel measures 5cm.

At Alighieri, we believe in creating forever heirlooms. These shoes are made by hand in Milan, Italy by our small, family-run manufacturer. The gold elements are carved by hand, then cast in bronze and plated in gold a stone's throw from our studio in Hatton Garden. The bronze used in this manufacturing process is fully recycled, with all excess metal going back into the cycle of creating tomorrow's forever piece. Each one is then hand-finished with care and love. Our similarly small and family-run caster has been our partner since the very inception of the brand - every step of our process is driven by human beings and their stories, from Dante to Rosh to our A-team... to you.

Your Alighieri order will be packed by hand, with love, and dispatched within 1-2 working days.
