Friulane shoes are named after the region in northeastern Italy where they originated. In the 19th century, these shoes were originally work clogs made from scrap materials and objects, including recycled bicycle tires for the soles. They eventually became popular party shoes in Venice, with noble families designing their own styles. After World War II, gondoliers in Venice began wearing Friulane because they did not damage the gondolas. Today, Friulane shoes are popular in Italian sustainable fashion.
