In Milan, the VI Audax Vespistico - Female Riders Team

On 30th June the Milan Vespa Club has set off the International Audax Female Vespa Riders Team's sixth edition. It's the comeback of an event that at the beginning of the fifties stood out as one of the most important moments in Vespa's history. It was 1st June 1952 when one-hundred female Vespa riders started off from Milan and competed right as far as the shores of lake Como and then back to Milan the following day.


It is from events such as these that the legend of Vespa's universality started and that the values of freedom, friendship and independence took root. Not only, but the world's most loved scooter helped to spread them among different generations and continents.


Vespa Shoes & Bags' “Freccia” sneaker equipped all the 60 participants this year. The “Freccia” is a shoe with a simple and slender upper, made with soft skin, that blends in with the irreverent hi-tech look sole. The element that surrounds the heel assures the greatest stability and has been designed in the style of the rear of a Vespa; the sole is complemented by a honey colour tread, which is inspired by the tyres used during the sixties and seventies.


Vespa Shoes & Bags' spring-summer collection 2018 is characterised by a whole line focused on women's fashion which is made of very high quality fabrics and skins, exclusive finishings and a palette of pastel colours that is inspired by the most up-to-date trends. For a woman who is bold and can stand out from the crowd thanks to her unmistakable and elegant style; just like Vespa.
