Only your most radical work shoe ever! Our practical magic explorations continue with an update on last years 'Little & Often' Day Heel court shoe. Now featuring an updated 4cm-high tear drop shape block heel and made in response to our wonder women customers request for a slightly higher heel option.
We love that so many of our wonder women customers come from professional fields. From lab-coat wearing scientists and doctors (you know who you are Team RMH!), through to lawyers, architects, accountants and librarians. In many ways we made this shoe especially for these women and those days when you need a smart and sharp look to carry you from the tram into work without your feet having to pay the price for your professional ambition.
This season we have updated our Day Heel series with a new, out-of-this-world silhouette, the 'Awake' court shoe. Featuring an updated 4cm block heel detail made in response to our wonder women customers request for a slightly higher heel option. The heel has been molded into a unique tear drop shape that adds a modern, sculptural feel to the profile. The topline on this silhouette has been drawn from our previous best selling style - the 'Wonderglove' shoe - finished with a square set, and slightly shorter vamp depth to reveal just the right amount of toe. The look is 60s inspired polish with a twist of modern magic.
Blue, from an emotional, psychological standpoint, has always represented a certain amount of calm and dependability. It’s a color that you can rely on. Blue is also the 2020 Pantone Colour of the year and a signature palette of our AW20 collection. Interpreted here in our classic day heel silhouette and juxtaposed with rose pink lining the overall affect is at once playful and reassuring. We love the radical energy of this palette and love that it provides a way more buoyant alternative to a black work shoe. Created in a very high quality leather with a slightly matt finish to the grain. The inner has been contrast lined in pink leather and features our extra padded 5mm memory foam insole board for all day wearing comfort. Being an exceptionally soft handle skin, these shoes will need your loving care but the richness of the upper palette will last for many years if you regularly polish and waterproof them.
We see more than a few takes on this look. We love this shoe with pin-tuck detail man style trousers and a sharp blazer especially in ironic tweeds. Wear them with ankle socks and longer line skirts (especially in denims and indigos). We also love to mix the heel detail up with denim - think a vintage athletic sweat and stovepipe jeans for weekend easy intentional clashing. Also great for high winter with contrast black tights peaking out under an oversized trench. The best thing is the heel is low enough that you can still run for the tram in them and maintain your fashion dignity.

Yes. This is a leather upper product so like all leather shoes will have around 8 - 10% stretch on wearing depending on the amount of pressure applied to the upper.
This is high quality leather upper so it does need care.
Leather is a wonderful material, breathable, durable and beautiful. But without a bit of love it can dry out and deteriorate.
For optimum care, we recommend and sell "Waproo Waterproofer" to protect them from unexpected showers. We recommend spraying monthly on the Full Moon and can send you a reminder if you sign up to our newsletter here.
Polish your leather shoes around once a month and clean when necessary with a leather conditioner and soft rag to remove any dirt accumulated on your travels.
For extra special treatment, polishing can help renew shoes that have developed scratches or other signs of regular wear. Wax and cream polishes available from a local shoe repairer will breath new life into your beloved toe tappers. Once your newly polished shoes have dried you can re-apply a waterproof spray for extra protection.
