The Dizzy is a lug-sole, lace-up, water-repellent cold weather boot. The upper and linings are partially made from recycled materials.

Gionata Pagni, Creative Director for Franco Sarto, said, “I draw every shoe with the vision of the woman wearing it. Art, form, sculpture, and purpose are considered in every aspect of the design. The Dizzy allows a woman to be stylish no matter the weather, and feel good about wearing a boot that uses environmentally preferred materials.”

“We’re honored that the Dizzy boot has been recognized by the Accessories Council. Not only is it both beautiful and functional, it’s an important part of Franco Sarto’s and Caleres’ commitment to sustainability,” said Jay Schmidt, president of Caleres. “The Franco team has done a fantastic job infusing eco-conscious features in its footwear, creating artful styles that tread more lightly on our planet.”

In its inaugural Environmental Social Governance report issued in 2020, Caleres developed a variety of 2025 ESG targets, including a commitment that 100% of its products will use environmentally preferred materials by that date. The company is well on its way to meeting that goal as outlined in its 2021 ESG report.

The Dizzy boot is available in two colors – brown and chiffon multi – on francosarto.com and many other e-commerce sites, as well as in select department and specialty stores nationwide.
