Most of our Wonder Woman customers are already familiar with our love of tom-boy style dressing, which in Paris they call ‘La Garconne’ and which so strongly influences our design process.

Part of the fun of what we like to call ‘Flat Shoe Liberation’ is taking classic men’s styles and re-interpreting them in a powerful feminine way for the modern woman.
For years we had mused about making a perfect Penny Loafer, but have never been able to source the perfect outsole to finish this classic shoe in the very small quantities that we make.
