About Us


During my career as an educator, I dreamed of following my passions for shoes and aesthetics — and before I knew it, Passeggiata Shoes opened in October of 2018.

Named for one of my favorite Italian lifestyle rituals, la passeggiata (pronounced pass-a-jot'-a) is the late afternoon and early evening stroll that is often the main social event of the day, sustaining their sense of community, before gathering for the evening meal.

So when you "take a little stroll" with us, you’ll find a unique and highly curated collection of shoes, bags and accessories for women and men — here online and in our community-focused, boutique in historic downtown Petaluma. 

We look forward to seeing you at the store, where you can expect a friendly smile, expert advice, personalized service — and maybe some sweet love from Topsy, my rescue pup who comes to the shop with me most days. 

Meanwhile, do contact us if you have any questions or input about your online shopping experience. 

You can keep up with our news and specials on Instagram and Facebook — and by signing up for our store emails below.

Be well and be Petaluma Strong, friends!
