The Starling in Flax Raffia

Creating a modern aesthetic inspired by the historical streets of Palazzo Corvaja in Italy, we refreshed our classic Starling loafer with earthy tones and a handwoven upper crafted of raffia. The footbed includes a nature-inspired print with stenciled blooms we referenced from a vintage scarf. Our Starling footbeds are covered with a soft and breathable cotton twill for added comfort and durability.

Wide sizes in stock mid-February. Join the waitlist above to receive a notification as soon as they arrive!

The Starling Cheetah was my first pair of Birdies. I waited over a month to decided to order them because of the cost and being disappointed with other shoe brands. When they arrived and I opened the package I was thrilled! The quality was beautiful. When I put them on my feet, I swear I heard Angels singing! Yes! They are that comfortable!

The Starling Birdies are so comfortable that I own them in multiple colors. Felt so confident about those that the first time I wore them was for a full day of walking around the city, and they did not disappoint! Perfect sizing, no break in time and so very stylish!
