Fits true to size - If you're in between sizes or have a high instep go up a size for the best fit. Leather collar lining and insole - memory foam padding for extra comfort - Heel height measures 5mm or 0.2 inches.

 

An elegant, architectural ballet flat that feels as good as it looks. Designed for everyday wear, these slip-on shoes are cut, sewn and crafted by hand from supple, LWG-Gold certified leather and their shape is defined by the natural curve of the foot. The directional squared toe and flattering vamp give the humble ballet flat a simple yet modern update.

For this style we travelled to Italy, the land of artisanal craftsmanship. Here, we work closely with a solid base of local craftsmen. Learn More

 

Inspired by our common focus on minimising waste and celebrating time-honoured craftsmanship, we’ve partnered with sustainable jewellery brand Linden Cook to create a very special release of our bestselling Foundation Flats. Each anklet can be customised so you can wear them as a bracelet or necklace too, making them endlessly versatile and maximising wear. With our "Made-To-Order" production model, we hope to set an example to reduce overproduction and waste of resources, whilst offering you a personalised experience.

The Curb Chain Fob is a chunky statement piece designed specifically for your ankle, to either be woven through the back of the shoe or to be worn individually as an anklet. The Lace Chain Fob is designed at a length that is both suitable for a wrap-around anklet or a necklace, making it endlessly versatile and maximising wear.

If you wish to purchase your Foundation Flats with an anklet, please specify the style, metal and length of your chain above. A standard length for the Curb Chain Anklet is between 25cm - 27cm and for the Lace Chain Anklet between 50cm - 52cm, however, this piece will be entirely made for you so please take the time to measure so it fits you perfectly!
