Our slip-on explorations continue with our favourite everyday silhouette. Featuring a unique almond shaped top line, our Serendipity toe tappers have been hand crafted to perfection. The shape of the topline creates a rounded 'ballet pointe' feel through the toe and picks up on our other dancer inspired looks seen in our other slip on styles like WONDER GLOVE and DHARMA. We have also experimented with the construction of the upper by removing internal facings to create a very unstructured feeling on the foot. Part slipper, part jazz flat, this is a sophisticated silhouette that can easily take you from AM to PM gigs.
Hand selected, the Lilac appears here in the softest handle kid leather for a truley luxe finish. We love how in juxtaposing this very pretty colour with the bold raspberry velvet lining, we shake it from the confines of it's stereotype as a passive palette and include it in the list of distinct and striking tones that shape this season.
HOW TO WEAR
Our favourite thing about this feminine lilac palette, is how strong and contemporary it feels when removed from it's conventional role as a wallflower hue. Here we prefer to pair it with weighted textures, structured silhouettes and dynamic colours - think oversized embellished blazers and vivid woollen suit pants. Also beautiful with wide leg high waisted denims and your favourite skinny knit for winter.

As we have recently introduced a Size 35 to our sizing grid, our fits have changed slightly and are now inline with true European grading. Based on this we strongly recommend using the chart below to check your size even if you have purchased this silhouette before.
- Stand on a ruler and measure your foot in CM (centimetres) from heel to toe.
- Find the closest measurement to your size against the chart above making sure your foot is within the stated length
- For example if your foot measures 22.2CM we would recommend you take a Size 37
- This is a general guide to our fits. If you are still unsure feel free to email us firstname.lastname@example.org for help before you place your order.
WILL THEY STRETCH?
Yes. This is a very supple kid leather upper / textile lined product so will stretch around 8 - 10% on wearing depending on the amount of pressure applied to the upper. The velvet lining makes them delicious to wear without socks, even in winter!
HOW TO LOVE THEM
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 you spray your new shoes with "Waproo Waterproofer" to protect them from unexpected showers.
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.
