Established in 2002 and loving every day since, Faerysteps has been a joy to be a part of.
We are a Mr & Mrs team of two who specialise in creating unique, often one of a kind, footwear and accessories. Inspired by the magical place in which we live and work, Faerysteps boots and shoes are wearable works of art. It's what we excel at, being able to create footwear that not only look and feel sublime, but, are also part of a limited edition few. Each pair a combination of inspiration, heart and hands.
Years of pattern perfecting has brought us to the current collection. Timeless styles, suitable for everyday wear, be it, weddings, dancing under an open sky, rambling on the moors or a day at work, your Faerysteps are designed to go anywhere.
We make footwear from this collection in sizes UK 3 to 8 in timeless colours as limited edition stock and made to order. Any one of these styles will be on our work tables at any given time. It's like a very exciting lucky dip :) New stock is always announced in advance on the appointed day via social media. Do follow for updates, including any potential Custom Listing slots. DUE TO CURRENT EVENTS (the world has gone positively yumpy), custom slots availability will vary. If and when open, available styles & colours will be limited. Do follow social media for announcements.
My own personal heroes are Miss Price from 'Bedknobs and Broomsticks', Homily Clock from 'The Borrowers' and probably, because this is who I am most alike, both in looks and dress, as well as temperament, (because she was a bit of a recluse too)... 'Winnie the Witch'. I like to keep things real ;)
I am an avid reader who enjoys the wisdom of the written word. For me, Ratty summed it all up with this wonderful quote from 'The Wind in The Willows'...
'Beyond the Wild Wood comes the Wide World,' said the Rat. `And that's something that doesn't matter, either to you or me. I've never been there, and I'm never going, nor you either, if you've got any sense at all.
A word about Instagram... Some of my happiest, early memories, are of my Mum with her trusty Polaroid camera tucked under her arm, always ready to capture the moment. To me, Instagram is like my 1970's childhood all over again. I use it daily to document work and play.
