​Thierry Rabotin Isabella

Apr 25th 2019

A new take on the love-forever slingback.

The slingback, or sometimes called a court shoe, is undeniably an essential for the modern woman. Its easy wearing style, simplified lines, and versatility have made it a must-have to keep in one’s wardrobe rotation as it works well with any garment for any occasion. The slingback often weaves in an out of the trend zone, with some considering it dated and others regarding it as evergreen and a haute mainstay. First popularized in the ‘80s, this silhouette is enjoying its renaissance while the fashion industry is obsessed with revisiting and reimagining classics from bygone eras. We at Hanig’s Footwear anticipate the moment this shoe comes back into vogue, and that’s why we are excited to introduce Thierry Rabotin’s Isabella sandal—arriving in two versatile colors and finishes for $430. An exclusive, this shoe reinterprets the classic in the brand’s signature sacchetto construction with minimalist and purposeful features.

THIERRY RABOTIN Isabella 1402 Black

Available in black suede and beige taffetas leather, the Isabella flat fastens with a buckled slingback strap and features an elastic band stretching across the midfoot for aesthetic and extra security. Light ruching across the front accentuates the open toe. Signature blue leather lining and a nappa footbed brighten up the interior, creating a cushioning internal environment for prolonged wear spanning from day to night. A modest 1/2 inch heel provides just enough elevation, while a flexible outsole bends naturally during foot movement. Like all Thierry Rabotin styles, Isabella is rendered with the rare sacchetto method for a more streamlined, glove-like fit. This is a distinct upgrade from other slingback shoes as the softened body contours to the shape of the foot, eliminating pressure points and relieving vulnerable zones, like the forefoot and instep, so you can walk, stand, and dance for as long as you please.

Get ready for special occasions in Thierry Rabotin’s Isabella sandal. From your favorite figure-hugging dresses to menswear-inspired trousers, this shoe adapts to it all. Pair the black version with a short-sleeved sheath dress, a single strand of pearls, and a patent leather clutch bag for a simple, classic look at a dinner party. Mix feminine lines with structured tailoring in a pair of cropped cigarette pants, a silk blouse, and a patterned blazer. Opt for the beige choice in a pencil skirt and a long-sleeved bodysuit for date night. Accessorize with a trapezoidal satchel bag, stud earrings, and a diamond bracelet watch to keep it elegant and sophisticated. A swingy midi-length dress and dainty jewelry is perfect for your next holiday party at work. No matter your style expression, Thierry Rabotin’s Isabella slingback flat finalizes your look with timeless Italian grace.
