SPILLER Shoe, Made To Order
Inspired by the self reliant, brave little 'outy', Spiller. He was a true Woodzie if ever there was one and avoiding being 'seen' requires silent, go anywhere footwear... He had the conker brown colourway shown... with leaf applique on the outer quarters, round toe shape and central lacing. A minimalist variation of our Thisbe shoe. These look wonderful for costume or everyday use, especially good for rambling. The lacing allows slight adjustment across the widest part of the foot and the instep.

How to measure
You will need a metric tape, a sheet of paper, pencil and a wall. Use the diagram below to take your length measurement. Leathers always give with wear, so an initial snug fit is desirable to allow for this.
NOTE: Please select your USUAL commercial shoe size using the drop down menu (previous customers also need to add their FS size in the 'Foot Length' text box).
Place a sheet of paper and your heel against a straight wall. With pencil held upright, mark the longest toe. Do this with both feet as they are often different lengths. Write the measurement in the box provided. If you are ordering boots it is advisable to wear your socks when measuring, for shoes, feet should be barefoot.

Barefoot comfort soling
We believe that your shoes should feel just like slippers, all day, every day, and our shoes do just that. With all leather interiors your new shoes will naturally give with wear, gradually moulding to your feet and offering glove like comfort.
We use a durable, highly flexible, cushioned, non slip soling made by the Italian company Vibram. There is no heel, just like Mother nature intended, with the soling offering a good level of bounciness and protection. When the time comes your shoes can be resoled by your local cobbler, thus extending the life of your beloveds and avoiding landfill sites.
