Inspired by Mary Norton's famous children's book, "The Borrowers", and named after the great little man himself, Pod. He was a shoemaker too.
With offset lacing and giant button applique detail, these are every day, everywhere shoes / booties. Constructed with only one seam (the smooth centre back seam) making them ridiculously comfortable... like a traditional shoe from centuries past. Once moulded to your foot you will forget you are wearing them ;)

If you have any difficulty in decided what is the best size for you please do get in touch and let me know your measurements and usual shoe size. Customers often size down in Faerysteps. See SIZE CHART tab to see if these will fit. Shoes must be fairly snug initially to allow for give in the leather.
"She was so full of happiness that, out of Homily's sight, her toes danced on the green moss." Arrietty Clock.
Leathers always give with wear, so an initial snug fit is desirable to allow for this.
NOTE: Customers nearly always 'size down' in faerysteps, so as a general rule, order one size down from your usual size, eg: usual size = EU 39 / UK 6, order size EU 38 / UK 5

Example; my foot length measurement is 25 cm. I am a high street shoe size of UK 6.5 / UK 7. I wear faerysteps size UK 5 for shoes. They are initially snug and give to a perfect fit. For winter boots where I want to wear thick woollen socks I wear UK 6.
