DORIS... a pretty but practical take on the traditional brogue. Perfect for riverbank rambles with your picnic basket and dotty umberella... retro vintage style shoe made in PILLAR BOX RED coloured leather with a scalloped detail. Polka dot ribbons to finish off! I made these shoes from start to finish, carefully, prudently, exquisitely... where will they take you?

This converts as EUROPEAN 40 - AMERICAN 9
Length: 25 cms (this is the actual interior length of the shoe), Widest part: (measured around the foot from the base of big toe to the base of the little toe joint and around), 22.5 cms, Instep: adjustable over instep. Give or take a few mm either side of these measurements and allow for socks if appropriate!

PLEASE Check your measurements carefully! Full details of how to measure up can be found on my website here...

I use a very durable, highly flexible, cushioned, non slip soling. This soling should last approx 2 years with daily wear and can then be resoled by your local cobbler.

Delivery information:
These shoes are in stock and ready to post!

Sorry chaps... but Fairysteps shoes are nearly all OOAK and are not available as custom made. Its partly whats makes them so special...

Further info:
Please read my policies page for further information about ordering, returns, etc...

Thank you for visiting x

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...
