Hold on to your hats, the Ludlow has arrived and it is crafted on my newest pointy toe last. The Ludlow is not a demure shoe, she is unexpectedly extroverted, even in black. She is a kind-of-a loafer, but so much more, as she has an oversized leather covered buckle closure which is framed by a snappy leather fringe, which by the way is removable, if you are not a fringe kind of a gal! The Ludlow has a handcrafted wooden 4.5cm high ‘louis’ shaped heel (fancy!) and a pointy toe with a lovely roomy toe box that will not crush your toes, adding that serious, ‘I mean business’ edge, yet I am not being crippled by my fantastic shoes.
The Ludlows are crafted on the new ‘Lofty’ 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.
Removable fringe: wear your shoes with, or without the fringe. 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 Vietnam.
