V is the first style we designed during the pandemic and is handcrafted in our factory in Italy. With all the extreme safety precautions now in place, the process of making shoes, and even getting to the factory, has changed for our dedicated craftspeople. V is a statement about the power of human beings to produce beauty and meaning in our changed world. We’ve decided to price it for the times we are in. V is named after Victor Frankl, the Austrian psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor who is well known for his bestselling book Man's Search for Meaning. Frankl’s book has had a profound effect on Zvelle founder Elle’s life and she was rereading it when she was working on this style. V is more than a shoe for us.
