Fendi’s playful approach to customisation has reaped significant rewards over the past few years, lending itself to made-to-order bags and accessories such as the Kan I bag and furry charms. It’s one of a handful of labels that led the way for other luxury houses to regularly update and refresh bestselling pieces. The brand’s latest initiative is based around a sporty catwalk hit, the Colibrì sandal, which was launched by creative director of accessories and menswear Silvia Venturini-Fendi in spring 2018 and will now be available in myriad made-to-order styles (from £590).

The shoes – whose name is taken from the Spanish word for hummingbird, alluding to the design’s pointy toe and super-lightweight design – have a moulded footbed and neoprene padding on the straps, adding to the comfort factor. 

As well as the toes and heels, the design’s sporty straps can also be customised
