What is the process for custom designing my shoes?

You will need to visit our store in Cape Town for a shoe fitting. At the shoe fitting, we will measure your feet to ensure a custom fit. Once we have your shoe measurements, we will keep them on file,  so if you require any shoes in the future then we already have your feet size. After confirming your design we will make a sample for a scheduled fitting before your shoe is completed and finished. This ensures that you are entirely happy with the design and fit before production is complete. Any adjustments can be made during this consultation.

Where do you source your animal skins from?

Our leather and exotic skins are ethically sourced from tanneries in South Africa and leather importers. We understand that there are clients that do not approve of exotic skin shoes and, in this regard, we make best efforts to procure skins that are certified and conform to ethical processes. We understand the need to ensure our clients are well informed in our procurement process. All of our skins are 100% genuine.
