Designed in our Staffordshire store with summer in mind. The Antonio Loafer is our unique interpretation of this classic shoe. With a slightly pointed toe and a low profile heel, our “no frills” slip on design allows the impressive craftsmanship to take centre stage. The complex handwoven leather structure encapsulates and protects your foot whilst still allowing it to breathe. The low top-line exposes you feet to the heat of the sun and makes them easy to slip off when you’re ready for a dip in the pool.

During our recent travels to Michoacan, Mexico, we had the pleasure of meeting artisanal shoemakers who use traditional techniques to create beautiful shoes from woven, vegetable-dyed leather. Inspired by their simple, sturdy and elegant style, we decided to work with the craftsmen to create a collection inspired by Mexico, but with a timeless British twist. Our shoes pair beautifully with our Panama hats, a hot summer day and a glass of Pimms.
