Footwear Designer Franco Sarto Talks Methods, Inspirations and His Love for California Wine

From humble cobbler to internationally renowned designer, Franco Sarto has come a long way since he began working at a shoe factory at the age of 14. His roots as a shoemaker in Dolo, Italy have given Sarto the technical background to create footwear that is lasting, wearable, and versatile. Recently, Sarto made an appearance at Nordstorm in the Westfield San Francisco Centre to promote his new self-titled spring collection. After meeting with devoted fans and handing out autographed sketches, Sarto (and his translator) sat down with us to talk about his methods, inspirations, and his appreciation of California wine.

Let's take a moment to thank Kate Moss, for launching the Wellie trend, back in 2006, when she made muddy Hunter rain-boots look sexy, with a pair of micro-mini shorts (Of course she did!). Designers and fans quickly took note, and what was once a childhood accessory for jumping in puddles, suddenly boomed as trendy adult footwear.
