Italian shoe maker Calzaturificio Zobboli has agreed a three year licensing deal with fashion designer Antonio Berardi and said it expects the link-up to generate total sales of around $2.2 million.

The firm will kick-off the deal with Berardi's Spring/Summer 2003 collection and hopes to sell 5,000 pairs of shoes in 2003, 10,000 pairs in 2004 and 15,000 pairs in 2005.
