Now featuring an updated 4cm-high tear drop shape block heel and made in response to customer requests for a slightly higher heel option.
We love that so many of our customers come from professional fields. From scientists and doctors to lawyers, architects & librarians. In many ways we made this shoe especially for them and the days you need a smart, sharp look to carry you from the tram into work without your feet having to pay the price for your professional ambition.
We have updated our Day Heel with a new, out-of-this-world shape, the 'Awake' court shoe. Featuring an updated 4cm block heel detail. The heel has been molded into a unique tear drop shape that adds a modern, sculptural feel to the profile. The topline on this shoe has been finished with a square set and slightly shorter vamp to reveal just the right amount of toe. The look is 60s inspired polish with a twist of modern magic.
Luxe Graphite leather juxtaposed with rose pink lining. The handle on this leather is textured and grainy and speaks to a luxury mood. We love the slightly ironic energy of the Graphite tone of this palette and love that it provides a radical alternative to an all black shoe. The polished feel is almost 'madman' like to really get the boss mood on. This is a very high quality leather with a slightly matt finish to the grain. The inner has been contrast lined in pink leather and features our extra padded 5mm memory foam insole board for all day wearing comfort. Being an exceptionally soft handle skin, these shoes will need your loving care but the richness of the upper palette will last for many years if you regularly polish and waterproof them.
We see more than a few takes on this look. We love this shoe with pin-tuck detail man style trousers and a sharp blazer especially in ironic tweeds. Wear them with ankle socks and longer line skirts (especially in denims and indigos). We also love to mix the heel detail up with denim - think a vintage athletic sweat and stovepipe jeans for weekend easy intentional clashing. Also great for high winter with contrast black tights peaking out under an oversized trench. The best thing is the heel is low enough that you can still run for the tram in them and maintain your fashion dignity.

Yes. This is a leather upper product so like all leather shoes will have around 8 - 10% stretch on wearing depending on the amount of pressure applied to the upper.
This is high quality leather upper so it does need care.
Leather is a wonderful material, breathable, durable and beautiful. But without a bit of love it can dry out and deteriorate.
For optimum care, we recommend and sell "Waproo Waterproofer" to protect them from unexpected showers. We recommend spraying monthly on the Full Moon and can send you a reminder if you sign up to our newsletter here.
Polish your leather shoes around once a month and clean when necessary with a leather conditioner and soft rag to remove any dirt accumulated on your travels.
For extra special treatment, polishing can help renew shoes that have developed scratches or other signs of regular wear. Wax and cream polishes available from a local shoe repairer will breath new life into your beloved toe tappers. Once your newly polished shoes have dried you can re-apply a waterproof spray for extra protection.
