    What our customers are saying

    These are the best boots I own. Beautiful and so comfortable! They're easy to match with my entire wardrobe, fantastic. Love the colour and the leather, I'm sure they'll last a lifetime :-)!

    — Karin

    Finally I ordered my first pair of ESSĒN shoes and to be honest, they are perfect! Good quality and a perfect fit. They match my everyday outfits but are also perfect for a fancy dinner. Just a matter of time before I will buy my second pair!

    — Julia

    Made me happy instantly. Literally opened the box, put them on my feet and they fit perfectly. I’ve never had flats that were so comfortable— I still don’t believe it. Highly recommend to everyone.

    — Eugena O.

    These loafers are my go-to shoe, super comfortable and hard-wearing and unlike anything else I've seen. I have been wearing them with dresses, skirts, trousers, jeans at work and on the weekend for over two years and they're still going strong!
