Today we remember the official birthday of a master who not only built an empire, but kept a legendary tradition. We say happy birthday to Salvatore Ferragamo by listing the fun facts about his life.

1. Ferragamo was born in Bonito, Italy in 1898.

2. Ferragamo was the eleventh child of fourteen siblings.

3. Ferragamo created his first pair of shoes at age 9, as a gift for one of his sisters.

4. His first shop was established inside his parents’ house, before they moved to America.

5. He studied shoemaking in Naples, Italy.

6. Ferragamo and his family moved to Boston, then to Santa Barbara and then to Hollywood.

7. In Hollywood was where Ferragamo found success by initially, opening a shop for repair and made-to-measure shoes. This shop will later become a huge attraction to celebrities of the moment. This achievement meant designing shoes for cinema.

8. Ferragamo was called the “Shoemaker of the Stars“.

9. Because he didn’t understand the pain that some shoes produced in the human’s feet, he went after a major in Anatomy at the University of Southern California.

10. After going back to Italy and establishing down his new life, Ferragamo was known because of creating exclusive pieces for celebs such as Marilyn Monroe and Eva Perón.
