FrontRunners: Sole Reviver

The latest Fratelli Rossetti yacht shoe (www.fratellirossetti.com), based on a footwear style that company founder Renzo Rossetti introduced in 1970, features a more tapered silhouette, but it retains the original design’s lightweight, slip-on form and breathable towel lining so that it can be worn comfortably without socks.
