Description

The Foundation Flat - Size Chart Visual

A timeless pair that feels as good as it looks. Our signature ballet flats are expertly made by hand in Italy from rich brown leather and their sleek shape is defined by the natural curve of the foot. The directional squared toe and flattering vamp give this humble ballet pump a simple yet modern update.  Designed for everyday wear, this pair is versatile enough to wear to work and at the weekend, too.

This Cognac colour is exclusively made-to-order, it will not be available in stock. Your order is custom made for you, and only you. This helps us significantly reduce waste by eliminating excess inventory and produce in a more sustainable way.

    Most comfortable shoe I own

    The leather is so buttery soft that I didn’t even need to break these in. They are the most comfortable shoe I’ve worn and I look forward to ordering the other colours.

    Amazing ❤️

    I love these shoes!!

    My feet are on the wider side so I was recommended to size up. I did need a couple of wears to break them in but now they fit like an absolute dream. I am planning to purchase another pair in a different colour.

    The colour is beautiful and goes with a variety of outfits.

    The entire shopping experience was top notch, from the responsive and helpful customer service, to super fast shipping.

    Thank you!

    The shoe is a perfect ballet flat for any age range. It is extremely comfortable, elegant, perfectly designed and constructed by traditional craftsmen - who are environmentally savvy. It is a label I will continue to choose. Cheryll H
