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.

Comfort comes first

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 feet so they stay crazy comfy for long hours. 

Bonus gift: Empress arch insole

For a limited time, every pair of flats comes with a FREE $40 arch insole, designed to completely transform what a “flat” normally feels like. These include extra arch support and cushion like a comfy sneaker. 

You’ll feel like you’re walking on 1000 squishy marshmallows all day long!

LOVE These shoes!!!

I have multiple issues with my feet and had given up on finding a shoe that I could wear for a night out that weren't clunky orthotic shoes. These are SO comfy right out of the box and they're stylish too! Bought 3 pairs and now buying sandals!

Heaven for your feet!

These shoes are A M A Z I N G ! Soft, ever so comfortable from the moment you put them on and they easily dress up or down. Perfect for travel! I wore them for 6 hours the first day without any of the usual problems or pain I would normally experience. Size seems spot on - wear & boughta size 41 in natural black. Would love to be able to have a pair in a leaf green, deep orange &/or dark hot pink. Even if these colours don’t eventuate, I will definitely be buying another pair or two!

Great looking shoes

I was pleasantly surprised at the look and quality of these shoes for the price. They are very light weight, ideal for travel. Great for going out to dinner after wearing my clunkier, supportive shoes while site seeing all day. Mine ran small. I’m usually a 9.5 or even a 9 in dress shoes. I ordered both a 9.5 and 10 and returned the 9.5. I found they accommodate my 3/4 support insoles and become more supportive. They are comfortable and look great.

These are the best!

I was apprehensive about the square toe. I wear a 7.5, and have narrow ankles, and these flats came up in a search for loafers for skinny ankles. I took a risk, ordered them in black, and I am so happy that I did. They are SO comfortable. I put the higher arch support in for me. I wanted to order a pair in tan, after I tried them on, but they are all sold out in my size. I ordered another pair in black and a pair with the stacked heel. These shoes smell like leather! They are worth the price., every penny.

So comfortable

I love, love, love these shoes so much. I went back and bought another 5 pairs. They’re super lightweight, very comfortable and fit true to size. I usually wear an 8 1/2 and had to get a 9 so I had more room for my toes.
