I have been searching high and low for the perfect pair of black ballet flats. My search is over!!!!! They are soft like butter, have perfect arch support, don't dig in the backs of my heels, and they hide the toes completely... Truly the most comfy & well made shoes I've ever owned and the nicest looking too. If you're thinking of getting a pair of shoes from Irene, go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! Thanks Irene!!!!
Design and comfort at your feet....
Hello, my name is Irene and I am happy to welcome you to my handmade leather ballet shoe corner.
I was born and raised in New York and currently living in Greece, the land of my anscestors. I studied touristic professions and graphic designing . Arts and crafts have always been a field of interest for me from a very young age, the roots of which derive from my grandmother, a fine, talented seamstress .
My passion for shoemaking also arose from my love and passion for sewing which explains why the parts my shoes consist of are strongly sewn together .
My shoes are made only of 100% genuine quality leather inside out. The insoles are also made by me using soft cushioning throughout including arch support to offer comfort and a 3mm hidden heel. The outsoles are made of a 4mm durable and antislip Vibram rubber offering flexibility, comfortable step and eliminating the wear and destruction of the upper. Soon I will be making eco friendly shoes for vegan lovers made of italian high quality synthetic leathers!
All my leather shoes and accessories are designed and created by me in my tidy home studio. Each item is made by hand and sewing machine for a more professional look. Our connections with Italy via relatives gives me the chance to use quality Italian leather straight from its famous tanneries. I also use canvas and linen in my shoes which gives them a romantic and shabby look.
I absolutely love how a shoe can look like a creative piece of art and feel so great to wear at the same time. Some of my shoes are made using recycled and reclaimed material which would rather become a designer shoe than go to waste. My aim is to offer both design and comfort which is why I put great emphasis on making comfortable insoles.
By buying handmade you are not only receiving something unique. Each pair of shoes is made with my upmost love and attention. Every purchase from Erinnbonnie supports my family and enables a livelihood that allows me to spend quality time at home with my children and allows me to dream of creating my own business someday.
My dream? To become a successful shoe designer!
Thanks you for being here!
