The platform is hidden inside the shoe to give a seamless look. The criss cross over the top of the foot and enclosed heel make this shoe supportive and and comfortable.
All leather, Upper, lining, insole and stiffeners.
Non-slip sole & surgical foam inside for a little extra luxury.
This design came about because i had a friends wedding to attend and i needed black shoes for my outfit, can you believe i had no black shoes? 18 years as a shoemaker and i had never made myself a pair of black shoes, I guess i hadn't needed any. So this shoe was designed to suit my needs, platform and solid heel for extra height and an illusion of slenderness. Although I'm not usually into the criss cross straps i like my heels to be sportive and hold my foot firmly in place. It is hard enough to walk in heels without having to feel like you need to hold them on with your toes. The low cut front was just to be different. The day of the wedding was the first time i wore them and i was surprised how comfortable they were without actually wearing them in. I stood up most of the day, danced and walked a long way for a taxi at the end of the night. This design is a new favourite.
