Proving ballet flats can be as elegant as pumps. Set atop minimalist stacked heels, these low-heeled pumps are polished and refined with an almond toe shape and detailed with tonal topstitching. Elegantly finished with the signature ‘Terra’ colour that differentiates the cuoio sole and the inside lining on all A di GAETA styles.

Sensitive and mysterious, la Timida jealously protects her own privacy. Silence gives her the freedom to be herself, keeping most of her beauty hidden from intruder eyes. Wonderfully observant and a great listener, she is able to understand people easily and sense their feelings. Longing to connect with something greater than herself, she tends to live in her own world, preserving a secret wild soul underneath her unspoken words.
Humidity, salt and atmospheric agents in general can cause permanent and irreversable wear and tear. Please take care to avoid rain and direct contact with heat, oil, grease (make up), alcohol (perfume) and other abrasive products, as A di Gaeta cannot assume responsibility for the eventual deterioration, modification and mishandling of products.

Extra care should be taken to avoid excess abrasion, as it may not be possible to repair once fraying occurs. Satin can be damaged by friction. Please handle this item with due care. Spray the item with a suitable protector prior to use. Any loose dirt should be wiped away with a soft dry cloth. Always store your product away in the dust bag provided.

Meet The Designer

A di GAETA is a Milanese atelier where beauty and functionality come together to create extremely versatile footwear products. A design that is constantly renewed, giving voice to a new creativity, helping women find the right balance between desire and need.

Angelica di Gaeta, Founder and Creative Director of the brand, merged her studies in product design at Central Saint Martins and her 13 year experience in luxury footwear to develop her own concept of 'shoe tailoring’ - customizable designs that meet the lifestyle and needs of the modern woman.

The first collection was launched at the end of the year 2020, to send a message of rebirth and positivity after a year that made everyone question many certainties and see life from a different perspective.
