Retro Heels

This isn't just another retro moment. Sometimes the summer challenge of embracing lighter dressing and still looking cool, calls for a shoe with a 70s vibe. It's the proportions that look so right - the heels that are a mix of a chunky stack and wedge, the weighty straps and vamps in easy going vegetable tanned leathers. Sandals like these are also undeniably sexy, something to do with the unexpected combo of a brown leg grounded by a stern shoe. And that's definitely very now.

Sarina Billy

Shoe boot, meet sandal. Sandal, meet shoe boot. We love the idea of adding a bit of toughness to a summer shoe, so we teamed a gladiator style front with a strappy back and put the whole thing on a chunky, 70s style heel.

Rolled straps aren't just great looking; they're more comfortable than regular straps

'It's a shoe that's all about proportions. Big boot style front, small sandal style back. And somehow they just work.'

'Having three different coloured leathers in one shoe isn't just fun - it multiplies what you can wear it with by three.'

'We call this heel a demi-wedge. From the side it's all 70s from the back it's stiletto slim elegance.'
