Venezia Style - Similar Italian Footwear

Similar Quality Italian Footwear is the new kid on the block.  Nonetheless, we are an established business in Second Life making new friends and customers everyday!  We are all so grateful that everyone that has come to know our brand tells their friends, and they tell theirs.  The best people in SL shop at Similar Footwear and we appreciate each and every one of you!  I’ve taken this opportunity to introduce one of our most popular styles, Venezia.  It is our take on the classic women’s pump with a little dash of sexy thrown in.  The sculpting, courtesy of Simone Bonham, is a combination of classic pumps with our signature ‘Killer Heel’ forged in metal with beautiful italian crafting.  Scripting allows for changing of metals from silver to gold, as well as sizing larger and smaller for your convenience.  The ankle bracelet and metal heels can be shown in either gold or silver metal thanks to the scripting of Co-Owner and brilliant skin matcher Larisa Tylman!
