The Empire Slide in Black

Think texture and comfort with our newest summer slide. The Empire Slide has been crafted by way of some very serious draping on the ‘Sweetie’ last and it has a generous snouty toe that won’t cramp your toes on those hot summer days. It has been engineered with an elasticated back strap that can be worn on your ankle if you want to feel nice and secure in your slides, or flip it up to sit decoratively on the top of your foot so you can get in and out of your slides super fast. The Empire Slide has a snappy little 4.5cm high heel that has been crafted in wood and then covered in draped leather. Super!

The Empire Slides are crafted on the ‘Sweetie’ last which is a C width fitting giving 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. 

Heel height is 4.5 cm.

These shoes have been designed, patterned, prototyped and tested in Melbourne by Karen Booker.  Our full size ranges are then handcrafted in Bali by artisan cordwainers.
