our Story

Dena Pavone Collection was founded on a love of Italy and a friendship founded on shared values of family and love.


Traveling with her family on the Amalfi Coast in Italy, Dena was determined to find the perfect sandal.  She scoured Capri, Sorrento, Amalfi and Positano, and fell in love with the art of Italian, handcrafted sandals.  The seeds for DPC sandals were planted then.



It has been said that best friends are like family you choose for yourself.  In looking back at how our story begins the question becomes, "Did we choose one another or did life choose us?"  The answer lies somewhere in between. 

Settling in the same beautiful town to raise our families and deciding on the same schools for our children to grow, learn and shine are examples of life choosing us.  Choosing to surround ourselves with friends that make us feel good about ourselves while sharing common values, priorities, interest and tastes, is our foundation and the beginning of a bond that has grown stronger with each passing year. We clearly chose one another!

Our Sandals

Starting a business together is a dream come true.  We have been bringing handcrafted Italian Sandals to our customers for the past 3 years and have recently embarked on expanding our collection to include our own line of sandals; Dena Pavone Italy.
