The Foundry Shoe has a ‘statement’ pleated toe where little leather pleats have been lasted into place and captured at the end of the bump toe, so your toes don’t have to look boring! Wrap around laces create an edgy layered look that doesn't just look cool, the laces actually work really well to hold your feet in the shoes… starting at the upper heel and traveling through little loops on the sides of the shoe they then wrap around your feet nice and securely.
The flattering ankle line starts at the top of the heel and then swoops down below you ankle bone and then back up to the top of your foot where an open placket will keep your feet a little bit cooler on a hot day. And of course don’t forget the cute little handcrafted wooden heel.
Extra toe spring combined with the C width fitting from the beloved ‘Luxford’ last provides the shapely profile and that extra bit of comfort-inducing-width in the toe region!
Lined with black leather and featuring a fully cushioned leather insole of memory foam under the leather sock. In keeping with our commitment to slow fashion the Veg Tan leather outsoles on these shoes are fully replaceable.
Waxed cotton wrap around laces with gunmetal aglets.
These shoes have been designed, patterned, prototyped and tested in Melbourne by Karen Booker. Our full size ranges are then handcrafted in Vietnam by artisan cordwainers.
