Ready for a quick history lesson? The D'Orsay flat was named after the 19th century Count Alfred d’Orsay. This shoe style features a prominent deep side cutout as it was historically worn by men and designed to accommodate their wider feet.
Present-day, the D'Orsay style shoe has been deemed "the bikini" of the footwear world for its two-piece style. Covering just the toe and heel cap, the cutaway style adds interesting detail to otherwise classic footwear.
