 At Rondini, in our women's collection, we have two types of soles. I will explain here what makes them different and how to choose the right one :)

The regular sole

  Our regular sole is the one you will find on all the pictures of our website. It's the classic one.

  It is thin and a little 'shaped like a spike'. On the left is a picture of our regular soles.

  The regular sole is available in all our different models.


What is the special sole? special sole

Always willing to offer a pair of sandals adapted to our clients' feet morphology, my grand-father created a wider sole. It gives a great fitting for wider feet: the foot follows the sole much better and does not go outside the outsole. 

Nowadays, this sole is available in four of our models: the feminine Salomé, the Bikini with its laces, the original Serpent (as shown in the photo on the right with a special sole) and the elegant Bérénice.

At the end of this article you will find photos of these different models.

The sole is marked with an S on the right of our Rondini logo on the sole.

What exactly is the difference?

To give you an idea, we have superimposed our two soles in size 37.

As you can see from the diagram, the special sole is wider than the classic one.

But how do I know whether I need a regular or special sole?

If this is your first pair of Rondini, please choose the button "I want to know my size" and follow the indications.

Thanks to our new measuring tool, we will be able to advise you on the right size and sole.

It is possible that your morphology is suitable for both regular and special soles. In this case, please compare your feet to the drawings below.

  • If this pattern is more similar (Egyptian feet), we recommend the regular sole.


  • Alternatively, if the shape of your feet is closer to the Roman foot, the special sole should be more suitable for you.


Do you have any questions? We will be happy to answer them by phone, e-mail or as a comment!

    Good morning Rondini Team, just want to let you know that the blog is very pretty and interesting! I like the special sole because it's the perfect fitting for my foot shape... It's rare to have different soles available in a shoes brand! It's a great opportunity, thanks for that. I only look forward to have more models available in the special sole. Take care and see you very soon. Christina
