About The Katia
A lightweight wedge heel with a form-fitting elastic band
The Katia is a wedge pump that is as versatile as it is unique. One of the lightest shoes you’ll ever try on, it almost feels like wearing nothing at all. It is as equally suited to the office as to going out. Pair with straight leg pants that come to the ankle for a professional style or even short hemlines for a fun weekend look. Built on a 2 1/4" cushioned Micro wedge, featuring hand-stitched sacchetto construction for the ultimate flexibility, a PORON® cushioned insole, soft Nappa leather lining, a textured elastic band for the perfect secure fit, and a lightweight rubber sole for traction, this will be one of the go-to styles in your shoe arsenal.
Made in Italy.

ONLY HAND-PICKED, HIGHEST QUALITY, SUPPLE ITALIAN LEATHERS WILL DO
We painstakingly hand-select each one of our leathers from the top ten tanneries in Italy. Commonly used synthetic linings cannot breathe and cause the foot to sweat resulting in blisters and irritation. Therefore, we fully line each shoe in highly breathable Italian Nappa leather. There is never a need to break in the shoes, even our patents, as our leathers are soft and stretchy creating a custom like-fit.
HIGH-END PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGY MEETS COUTURE FASHION WITH XL EXTRALIGHT, VIBRAM, AND MICRO
Traditional materials such as heavy rubber lack give, wear down too quickly and can cause foot fatigue. Therefore, Anyi sources various high performance materials to make her shoes lighter, cushier and longer-lasting.
Vibram was originally designed in the 1930’s for mountaineering and continues to be used for specialized sporting footwear.
XL Extralight, another resilient sole material, is currently also used by the automotive and marine industries for shock absorption.
And MICRO, which makes up our wedge heels, is a material injected with hundreds of bubbles for reduced weight and increased give.
