Black dress shoes for women just got classier with Di Minno’s Babette Mary Jane shoes in soft black velvet! These made in Italy flat shoes for women are simply perfect, a stylish alternative to plain black sandals. Di Minno’s expertly made low heel offers great ease, and a wide strap secured across the top of the foot is so chic! Add rows of crystals on the strap with a cute satin border and you have the most iconic Mary Jane shoes ever! Perfect for attending a semi-formal event, a low key wedding, a garden party or a happy hour! Originally called ‘bar’ shoes – because of the strap across the shoe top – in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Mary Jane shoes became popular for women when the 1960s model Twiggy donned hers. And now you too!
