Made for those long days

Long hours of running errands or chores is definitely not good for your feet. 

Most shoes available weren't giving us the support or comfort our feet needed. We constantly had sore spots or aching arches by the end of the day. 

So we re-imagined one from the ground up. Working with renowned Podiatrists and exactly 410 hours and 15 revisions later, the result: A cute, affordable shoe that will give you the softest step.

The secret lies in the shape. Our unique 'square toe' conforms to the shape of your foot, which means no more feet pain and it won't deform your feet in the long term. 

Perfect for those who have feet problems such as plantar fasciitis, neuropathy, bunions, hammer toes, arthritis.

Perfect Fit

Made from buttery Mold-To-Your-Feet Leather, it's designed to fit like a glove. The soft material will literally 'cup' your heel so it doesn't slip off.

Gorgeous shoes! Give me more!

I originally bought the red patent leather flats and I was dazzled by them! Bought for dress up but can't resist wearing them every day. Just received the black patent leather pair and I can't wait to wear them. So comfortable on my 12 wide feet. I have neuropathy and these shoes work great for that. Great shoes!!!

Fun, comfortable shoes to make a statement

The wine colored flats are comfortable enough for everyday wear, yet are a major statement piece. Love the way they look and feel!

MEDIUM US 5 - Absolute Delight!

Oh my goodness, where to begin. I literally just received my shoes about 1 hour ago. These shoes are flawlessly made! The color (red) is gorgeous. The fit is perfect (I wear a Medium 5.5 or 6 US, but the Medium US 5 I bought fit like a glove (so probably order down too) - they felt so good when I tried them on… my feet were happy! Also, the presentation is so beautiful. These shoes are high quality, let me tell you. I am extremely pleased with my flat-square-toe red shoes - can’t wait to wear them! What a treat to own these shoes! :) The shipping, however, was painfully slow…took more than a month to receive them. However, to be fair, I did purchase them close to Christmas, so I am sure that was part of the reason for such late arrival. I will DEFINITELY be purchasing again - just crossing my fingers that the shipping doesn’t take as long as this shipping did. Thank you, Empress, for making these absolute beauties! :)

I love these shoes !

I am age 68 . I wore birkenstocks for years . Now due to back issues I can no longer wear them . I have bunions . I have problems with arthritis in knees and feet resulting in walking issues at times. All that being said, these shoes are perfect for me ! I am on my third pair now . They are comfortable and help my balance and mobility when arthritis pain flares . I have looked for a comfortable shoe for some time and was delighted to find Empress shoes .

Wow, so comfortable!

These are terrific shoes! They are super comfy, the toe box fits my very wide foot (thanks to not wearing shoes as a kid!) They have terrific arch support, and the extras in the box were a treat! I now own two pair and wear them to work. Love them and will buy more.
