Testimonials

"In January I ordered a pair of your shoes as one of my wife's birthday presents, which she liked very much.  For Valentine's Day I ordered another pair as one of her gifts, and she liked them a lot also.  This week she looked through your website and found another pair she wanted; so I ordered them from you and they are enroute to us." William S.

"Aside from the beautiful design and lovely construction of the shoes, Chris also provides outstanding customer service and support. He worked with me to make sure that my shoes were the perfect fit. His thoughtfulness and creativity will no doubt be the keys to his success." Britta M

"The 39.5 fit perfectly. I just have to say, I’m such a fan of your work! The Globe article hooked me, then I realized I had already seen you in the Tim Gunn special. I’ve been sharing your website with friends for months, and am so excited to have a pair of my own.  Best of luck!" Kimberly B
