This shoes Are expressly delivered from Australia to Europe! Unwrapping the package, I instantly saw that It is about super high quality item, which is not so common these days. So, the shoes Are perfectly Made and also Made from high quality materials. But what makes me happy the most is that they Are so unique and lovely designed. And Which matters to me is that this shop supports slow fashion and thougful consumerism as well as I do. Eventhough I have lots of problems with my thick feet (and the shoes Are still too tight for me Because of this), I feel that they will be my loyal friends for a long time.

About

A Passion for Handmade

I have worked in the fashion industry designing, patternmaking women's lingerie, swimwear and outerwear.

After many years making bags and accessories as a hobby I decided to study shoemaking and so here we are now, I have launched my own women's shoe label. My ethos is simple, make interesting and avant garde shoes that are comfortable.

Shoe and accessory design is constrained by many practical factors so I always try to take a sculptural and conceptual approach.
Early on in my design career I realised that I wanted to expand my horizons and pursue a multi-disciplinary approach to design that was more than just following fashion.
I found a great sense of freedom by learning other skills and disciplines, and have always incorporated these into my design aesthetic.
Modern woman know who they are and know their own style, throwaway fast fashion doesn't cut it anymore. We want uniqueness and longevity from our accessories.
I’m the kind of person that once I find something I love, I always want it in my life; I think we all have that inclination toward objects and clothing.
Many times I have had the perfect skirt or top and have worn it until it has practically dissolved! The way I approach shoe design is as wardrobe essentials, enduringly classic yet still lyrical with line and form.

Additional policies and FAQs
Care for your Shoes:

Your new shoes can look after your feet for many years…just a few tips on how to get the best from your Booker & Co shoes.
A good quality nourishing or polishing cream rubbed into the leather on your shoes will ensure the leather stays moisturised and will last longer as well as keeping your shoes looking rather dashing too! We recommend Waproo products.

If your shoes get wet, gently stuff with absorbent paper and leave in a warm, dry place to dry overnight.
It is best not to place them close to direct heat sources such as heaters and fires as this can damage the leather and re-activate and loosen the glues used in the construction of your shoes. To extend the life of your soles a Topy can be added to reduce wear to the sole itself, your local cobbler or shoe repair shop can help you with this.

Thank you and we know you are going to love your Booker & Co shoes.
Don't forget to come back and see us next season for new styles and colours.
