Our Story


A legend says that the first pair of leather sandals was brought to the isle of Capri over 2,000 years ago by the Roman Emperor Tiberius. Since then, the classic Romanesque sandals have been worn and loved by locals, visitors and the international jet-set that have transformed the Capri sandal into a timeless fashion icon. 

Sofia Capri sandals are each handmade by local artisans using only fine Italian leathers and raw materials that age beautifully. The brand’s vision is grounded in tradition but flies on the wings of fresh colours, innovative textures and one-of-a-kind capsule collections that are inspired by Capri's Mediterranean spirit.

Authenticity. Artisanal Italian craftsmanship. Attention-to-detail. Sofia Capri celebrates an age-old sandal-making tradition while embracing a contemporary design aesthetic.
