Enjoy a discount on this pair of wide shoes as I streamline my Etsy shop.

This pair has elastic at the heel and so fits about 22.25-22.75" total foot circumference. Around the ball would fit 9.25-9.5", or 8.5 wide in US Women's.

Gillies are traditionally Irish or Scottish shoes, characterized by the rounded tabs that the ribbons lace through.

Crisscross ribbons across the top of the foot to make long feet look smaller, and ankles narrower. Turned slippers like these were common dancing and walking shoes, historically.

The tightness of ribbons is totally adjustable. Ribbons can be cut long enough to tie on top of foot, or crisscross over the foot and around the back of the ankle.

These flats add about 1/4" to your height. Cushioning is 4-6 layers of felt made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. These shoes feel like a cross between being barefoot and wearing sneakers.

The oval toes of these slippers turn up very slightly to show the soles. Soles as pictured are ivory suede leather. Suede soles are ideal for dancing. The suede extends up the side and back of the shoe upper about 1/4" and about an inch at the heel to prevent fabric from touching ground. Suede soles are ideal for dancing, and these shoes will hold up to light outdoor wear.

The exterior fabric is champagne satin under buttercup yellow lace. The lining is midnight blue batik cotton. Eyelets on this pair are gunmetal gray in color.
