You’d be hard pressed not have heard of the eye-catching, velveteen shoes quickly taking the internet by storm in today’s Momboss feature. It seems as though these colorful slippers and slides are slowly making their ascent into artisan shopping domination—we’ve even featured them in a number of round-ups here on Mother. All the same, allow us to introduce you to the beautifully hand-crafted, Venetian footwear brand, Fifi Venezia. Founded by two powerhouse mamas, Kim Fox and Lynn Pyle (one, a mother of two and the other, a single mom of four), Fifi Venezia is an elevated brand all its own.
