Allyson and Michael lived in Beacon Hill, which is a historic part of Boston. The city has winding alleys and roads made of cobblestone which proved to be harsh on Allyson’s feet as she traveled to work and completed everyday life. She wore trendy and high-fashion shoes, but they couldn’t keep her feet comfortable or stand up to her constant walking over the bumps and rough edges of the city — so she took matters into her own hands.
Because Michael is from Italy, she began searching there for inspiration for her shoes. In Italy, shoemaking is an art form where artisans source impeccable resources like leather and other materials. After Allyson found the right dose of inspiration, Cordani blossomed and now provides women around the globe with the highest quality of shoes that fuse comfort with fashion.
Allyson’s original collection, known as Linea Blu, features chic Cordani cork wedges and platforms. Designed to provide even weight distribution, the footwear helps women go about their daily routine in style without sacrificing their feet with blisters and soreness. The collection’s under-soles have curved lines to give you a rocker effect that propels you forward. Other comfort features include arch support, molded footbeds, padded insoles, lightweight constructions and heel grips.
Cordani is here to pamper your feet with understated designs to match any outfit in your wardrobe.
Cordani pumps and other styles are handmade in small factories by artisans. The brand supports craft workers in the shoe-making industry around different parts of the world to help preserve traditional shoemaking techniques and methods. They manufacture many of their shoes in Marche, which is a region in Italy known for its deep roots in shoemaking. People in the area pass down methods from one generation to the next and make meticulous footwear. They use fine leather and unique materials, too.
Cordani espadrilles and other styles made of cork footbeds are made in southern Spain by artisans who know how to work with jute and cork. The company’s clogs and shoes with wooden bottoms are from Guadalajara, Mexico. Hand-carved and polished by crafters in Chile, the bottoms are then sent to Mexico where leather is used to cobble the shoes. Even some Cordani styles are manufactured in California. They are crafted by an Armenian family who brought shoemaking traditions to the states, different styles of shoes come straight from the U.S.
