If you’ve never heard of a pavloposad shawl, don’t worry, we did a little research for you. The traditional foulards or scarves first popped up in the city of Pavlovskii Posad (hence the moniker) around the 1860s, when they were given to brides on their wedding day as future family heirlooms.

Like the Russian shawls of antiquity, Russy Valenki’s silken plimsolls are designed to become cherished heirlooms.

Like the Russian shawls of antiquity, Russy Valenki’s silken plimsolls are designed to become cherished heirlooms. The brand scours Italy’s vintage markets to find its foulards, selecting pieces that dovetail with a specific theme: baroque vintage, hunting vintage, and geometric vintage. Each shoe can be strung up with regular laces or, to strengthen the pavloposad connection, embellished with a decorative bow.

Dying for a pair to call your own? The shoes will be available online in September, according to Russy Valenki’s Facebook page.
