Announcement   Our handmade shoes are made as ooak or limited editions (stock only). Do check the shop for your size to see whats currently available. Stock is very low at present so we are busy sewing like crazy to get lots of yummy shoes back into stock. As soon as we have shoes ready we will post updates so get ready to snaffle a pair if they take your fancy. Hope to have plenty available from April onwards (maybe sooner). Ren xxx

Updates of what I am currently making can be seen on my facebook or instagram page, search 'faerysteps' to see. I operate a 'first come, first serve' system, and do not reserve items in advance of listing (remember... no begging). This keeps everything nice and fair for all. I am a great believer that Lady Fate will always bring us what we need, so do keep checking back to see if your dream pair turns up.
Thank you my dears x

About

Once Upon A Time...

We specialise in creating unique, often one of a kind, footwear and accessories. Inspired by the magical place in which we live and work, Faerysteps boots and shoes are wearable works of art. It's what we excell at, being able to create footwear that not only look and feel sublime, but, are also absolutely unique. When you buy a pair of our handmade faery boots or shoes, they could in fact be the only ones like it on the planet.

Due to grumbles brewing in the faerysteps workshop, I no longer offer custom orders (no begging please, it's so hard to say no to such lovely people). Faery dust was getting lumpy, wands were breaking, wings were going limp, mummerings of overwork among the faeries was getting louder... thankfully, peace is now restored.

I have tried to make it as simple as possible to order, but, if you do need help, I am only an email away, and always happy to help.

Leathers available
Our specially selected leathers are top quality, smooth and supple with a slightly antiqued pull up finish. They have natural scuffs and variations across the hide, enhancing their already unique natural beauty. Some are repeatable, many are 'limited editions'. Your boots or shoes may well be the only ones in that colourway... It's all part of what makes Faerysteps so special.

What does barefoot comfort mean?
We believe that your shoes should feel just like slippers, all day, every day, and our shoes do just that. With all leather interiors your new shoes will naturally give with wear, gradually moulding to your feet and offering glove like comfort.
We use a durable, highly flexible, cushioned, non slip soling made by the Italian company Vibram. There is no heel, just like Mother nature intended, with the soling offering a good level of bounciness and protection. When the time comes your shoes can be resoled by your local cobbler, thus extending the life of your beloveds and avoiding landfill sites.

There are many interesting articles online that question highly constrictive, over constructed modern footwear, and praise the benefits of barefoot style shoes.

They are perfect for customers of any age. Afterall... fun is timeless.

We hope your new shoes are going to render you silent. Hopefully initially when you open the box, but from thereafter when you wear them too. Our soling is so quiet that you won''t even hear your own footsteps. Perfect for woodland walks where you need to be as silent as possible. Full fitting instructions accompany each pair of shoes when they leave the Faerysteps workshop.

Sizing & Wide Fittings
Our sizes range from UK 3 to UK 8 in a standard D width fitting. Several of our styles will accomodate up to a F width fitting, 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 up to a F fitting, possibly more! These are also 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, QUEENIE, LUNA, ESTHER.

After hours work / play...
Each evening when I down my shoemaking tools I pick up my wool and hook or needles. Ive been playing with yarn and sticks since I was a child and find it immensely relaxing at the end of a long working day. I sell my woolly goods here in my Etsy shop alongside fruits of the Faerysteps workshop. They make ideal gifts and perfectly suit our range of footwear and leathergoods.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

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 Faerysteps shoes or boots. They will darken initially, but will fade out to their original colour.

Do you offer a re-soling service?

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.

I want to order custom boots and shoes in my size?

Due to grumbles brewing in the faerysteps workshop, I no longer offer custom orders (no begging please, it's so hard to say no to such lovely people). Faery dust was getting lumpy, wands were breaking, wings were going limp, mummerings of overwork among the faeries was getting louder... thankfully, peace is now restored.
