For many years I was a shoe maker. From the age of 17, I found myself working in the fast moving environment of fashion shoe production.  As  I progressed through the years one thing became apparent, that was that build quality was becoming worse. In an attempt to compete with cheaper imports the shoes were becoming less wearable and for years the British public had to put up with ill-fitting uncomfortable footwear.

In our shop we specialise in quality footwear and it’s refreshing to hear the comments our customers make as regard fit and comfort. The Wedding Shoe industry has had it right for years, Style comfort and all day wear ability but lurking in the background the Special Occasion shoe industry has taken note and are now producing beautiful affordable well-fitting shoes with no compromise and also matching handbags which is a real plus.

Today however id like to focus on one particular brand, and that is Nina, who produce well-presented beautiful shoes from the shoe to the packaging and the box, everything says this Shoe is a cut above the rest.

We have sold lots of Nina to Brides but this shoe called Electra is stunning in this autumn’s colour of dark grey. This Style has been a real winner and I hope you enjoy just looking at it.
