Vista L.A.: Aldabella Scarpa - sole sisters
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Aldabella Scarpa, which means beautiful shoes in Italian, is a children's shoe boutique in Covina.
The company was started in 2007 by sisters Ann Marie Smith and Monica Gonzales. Their history in the shoe trade stems back generations, beginning with their great grandfather who patented the steel-toed shoes for miners.
The family believes creating beautiful shoes is in their blood. Ann Marie and Monica design all of the shoes and each pair has a unique story behind its creation.
Aldabella shoes are now available in hundreds of stores across the country, but these "sole" sisters say their true success and cornerstone of their business is giving back to the community.
For every pair of shoes purchased at the boutique, they will give a pair of shoes to underserved children in the surrounding neighborhoods.
