Inspired by Mary Nortons famous childrens novel, The Borrowers... This pretty vintage inspired shoe has a big leather button stitched on for decorative detail. Buy a vintage feel chiffon dress to wear with these, fill a basket with cucumber sandwiches, iced buns, ginger beer and a good Agatha Christie mystery, then find your nearest river bank... sunshine is optional!

Made in CORNFLOWER smooth leather with contrasting EMERALD GREEN bar and button, these also have an Elven short toe point! Cushioned Vibram non-slip soling with a contrasting Bright RED nubuck leather insole.

We recommend that all customers MEASURE for correct size before purchasing!
Before ordering please read the following information below:

Taking measurements...

LENGTH: Standing upright with your foot firmly on the paper, ask your friend to draw around your foot, keeping the pen / pencil upright at all times. Accuracy is important so do keep the pen upright! Do this with both feet. Now using the diagram as a guide measure the length of both foot drawings from the heel to the longest toe. This is your LENGTH measurement. We need to know the longest one!

WIDTH: Next up is finding your width (the circumference). Once again using the diagram as a guide wrap the tape measure { all the way around the widest part } of your foot, not over or across, but all the way around, this will be at the ball joint (base of the big toe to the base of the little toe). Again, do this for both feet.
If you plan on wearing socks in your boots or shoes then please measure up wearing them, and again barefoot!

Actual interior measurements of shoes...

These measurements are useful for assessing if IN STOCK footwear will fit! This will be the interior measurement of the finished shoe, so *add a little extra* to your foot length measurement for comfort and wiggle space! Usually approx 5 mm.

Frequently asked questions about Fairysteps

Leather likes to be loved, treat it well and it will serve you for a long time. Any good clear polish will do just fine for your Fairysteps shoes or boots. They will darken initially, but will fade out to their original colour.
Several of our styles will accommodate wider fittings, and have been designed especially for customers who need extra space across the width of their shoes. Ribbon adjustment means that the shoes can be effectively widened across the width and instep. Useful for hot summer feet that may be prone to swelling (a common problem for those who spend many hours on tired feet). Choose any of the following if you have wider than average feet: CLARA, LUNA, ESTHER.
I'm afraid we do not offer a resoling service. However, we our Vibram soling is selected not only because it's fab, but also because all shoe cobblers can get hold of it easily from their suppliers, win win.
If this happens we are happy to offer a return on unworn as new footwear. Footwear should be sent back unworn and in their original packaging.
Please contact us to log your return.
Make sure they are insured as we cannot be responsible for parcels which are lost in the post. On arrival here, we will issue a refund back to you (I am afraid this excludes postage costs). You can then have a look in the shop for suitable stock and reorder the next size up or down, or not reorder at all, I leave it entirely with you my dears, no pressure here :).
Apologies if this seems a fidget, but my accountant insists I keep my books in order and deal with returns / remakes in this way.
I am afraid I don't offer layaway BUT I do recommend a jam jar for saving. Fairysteps will still be here when your jar is full. Its just that we are asked so much that we would fry our brains keeping up with all the paperwork...
Boots are only ever available as limited stock items. It makes each pair rather special. Do keep an eye on the shop for updates of what boots are on the worktable now. They are my blank canvases for when inspiration strikes...
To avoid turning into a mass manufacturing unit (and at the fear of going completely mad...), I have had to limit the number of shoe styles I offer as MADE TO ORDER. Keeping track of all the variations was making for a stressed workshop. Fairies don't like stress, there were complaints brewing...
All items must be returned unworn / unused and in the new condition in which they were received, in their original packaging. Return to: Fairysteps, Northridge farm, Moretonhampstead, Devon, TQ13 8QB, England. To log a return please contact us with your name and the date of order.
