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

    Perfect flat!

    Wonderful flat shoes that I can wear all day walking around London. I have quite wide feet and find it very hard to get comfortable shoes so I was delighted with these. I will definitely be buying them in another colour next Spring. Meanwhile I am thinking about buying the Lug Sole Boots..

    Super Soft Leather

    Beautiful soft leather that requires no “break-in” period at all. Great for casual or business casual wear.
