Inspired by female entrepreneur, businesswoman, and engineer Patrice Banks, luxury footwear fabricator Darren Smith has crafted the Barollo Italy Red Shoe. The striking red shoe celebrates the fundamentals of empowering and inspiring women to rise and build careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields. The Red Shoe's iconic design and shape stands out as a testament to the unique drive and skills women like Patrice Banks, who work in traditionally male-dominated fields.

The Red Shoe is known for pairing sumptuous, elegant design, clean lines, and brilliant scarlet upper with an innovative heel design that pays homage to its inspiration, Ms. Patrice Banks. As a nod to Banks' emergence in the field of auto mechanics, an industry highly dominated by men, the heel is shaped in the likeness of a crescent wrench, with the head of the wrench at the heel tip. This subtle design change emphasizes the importance of opening all fields to all genders, embracing equality and diversity.

The Barollo Red Shoe will be available for an extremely limited run, and will be individually numbered. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Red Shoe goes directly to benefit the Girls' Auto Clinic.

The Red Shoe is available for purchase in an extremely limited edition of 2,499 pairs. Production of this Barollo Italy's Red Shoe will begin in February 2020.
