Earlier this year, I bought a pair of slip-on sneakers on a whim. During one of my many extensive “research” assignments on internet shopping, I came across Mr. Gemi’s site, I loved the look and design of the Cerchio, and I thought “Why not? ” Better. Decision. Never.

First of all, slip-on sneakers are never a bad idea. Whether you’re running errands or want a sleeker look for brunch (that doesn’t involve pinched toes or painful arches), this shoe ticks all my boxes. Comfortable? Yeah. Versatile? Oh yes. Plugged? You bet. And on top of that, the Cerchio is also superbly made. Constructed of butter-soft, hand-woven nubuck and a rubber sole, the sneaker is made in Italy and is the brainchild of Maria Gangemi (whose company is named after her) and a sneaker specialist from 63 years old named Paolo, who lives in Tuscany. Let’s say it together people: “Awwww!

Given the quality and craftsmanship of the shoes, its $228 price tag—not cheap, but uh, not expensive handmade in Italy either—surprised me, but makes sense given the platform. direct-to-consumer form of the business. So when I recently found out that The Cerchio had developed a sort of cult following, it made a lot of sense. That’s right, the shoe sold out in every color this spring (I went natural, naturally!), and at one point had a waitlist of over 1,000. I spoke to Gangemi, who is the co-founder and CMO of Mr.Gemi, about why the shoe resonates so strongly with consumers. “The Cerchio is the perfect transitional shoe,” she explained. “The style works through many seasons and climates and the sleek white rubber soles pair just as well with ripped jeans or a flirty summer dress. It is elegant, easy to wear and comfortable; it’s basically a home run. Home run, indeed.

The good news is that a restock has taken place – and there are a bunch of new colors, including chic metallics. If you’re the type of girl who appreciates variety, I hear you – scroll down to check out all ten colorways and see how hard it is not to get multiple pairs.
