Woman sues shoe designer after falling, breaking her ankle

A New Jersey woman who tumbled down her garage stairs and broke her ankle says it’s Ferragamo’s fault.

Lisa Colella thought she was snagging a great deal in 2013 when she bumped into Frank Cerisano, a boss at the design house of Salvatore Ferragamo, on a golf course.

Cerisano tipped Colella to the designer’s outlet in Secaucus, which nobody knows about “unless you’ve been recommended,” Colella claims in court papers.

So she made a beeline to the store and bought a pair of “top-of-the-line” wedge-heeled espadrilles.

But the married graphic designer noticed the right shoe “seemed to be loose and wobble a bit.” The next summer, disaster struck.

Colella broke her ankle in three places and had two surgeries to have pins and a plate inserted into the joint — and remains in constant pain, according to a $1.4 million Manhattan federal court lawsuit she filed against the designer.

Ferragamo did not return a message seeking comment.
