How to measure your foot
Measure Your Foot
  • Put a piece of paper on the ground next to a wall
  • Standing firmly on the piece of paper with your heel slightly touching the wall, mark the paper where your foot is the longest (most likely at the tip of your big toe)
  • With a ruler, measure the distance from the wall to the mark on the paper (indicating the longest part of your foot)
  • Take that measurement and match it with a measurement in the “Inches” column in the size chart.
  • Wear socks when measuring your feet
  • Measure your feet at the end of the day, as your feet tend to expand throughout the day
  • Measure both of your feet, as one may be bigger than the other

Product Details
SOFT CALFSKIN LINING
All of our shoes are fully-lined with soft calfskin leather, which means ultimate comfort. Most companies will only partially line their shoes, but we go the extra mile because it means a more comfortable shoe and less break-in time.
FULL-GRAIN LEATHERS
We only use vegetable-tanned, chromium-free, full-grain leathers. These high quality leathers makes our shoes durable and comfortable. We partner with the best mills and tanneries in the world to produce bold styles using the most unique leathers in the world.
PAINTED BY HAND
Our leathers are painted, stained, and burnished by hand. Creating a unique shoe means not being limited on what we can design…finishing the shoes by hand gives us total freedom in our products and makes every single pair a unique piece of art.
HAND-CUT AND STITCHED
All of our patterns are cut by hand. We do not use molds or lasers to cut the leather. This takes much more time but it allows for only the best sections of a hide to be used.
GOODYEAR WELT CONSTRUCTION
This shoe is made using the classic Goodyear Welt Construction. This method allows for easy resoling, longevity, and added water-resistance. Goodyear welt construction is the most labor intensive type of shoe construction and the result is a beautiful shoe that will last you a long time.

Finally a Black Shoe That Isn't Boring

The split cut design on this shoe is constantly getting compliments. It has quickly replaced my boring black shoes as my go-to in the closet. I can't wait until the floral pattern gets back in stock!

Paris shoe Review

These shoes are pimpin on every level. They look so good I don’t even have the courage to break them out yet. I keep thinking I need a super high end event so that I can break them out. The other night I went out in a stretch limo hummer dressed to the nines and still didn’t think it was a high end enough event to break out the Paris black kicks. I love that shoe. I may just frame them.
