A. Bruno Magli

If you answered B Salvatore Ferragamo then you are correct! At 9 ears old,when he learned that his parents could not afford to purchase a traditional white pair of shoes for his sister, Salvatore made them himself. After studying anatomy, he added steel inserts for arch support. He returned home to Italy and set up shop in Florence. He eventually went on to designed shoes for Hollywood stars and now has a worldwide luxury brand.
