Stitched leather sole, stacked leather Cuban heel with rubber lift. Brass zipper in back + lined with soft leather that you don’t feel one bit barefoot. Leather insole and lining ensures this shoe will mold to your foot like a glove, becoming uniquely you over time.
Each boot runs in European Sizes. Both the pattern and leather selections lend to an easy, moldable fit. Lauren recommends wearing the boots and shoes without socks so that the shoe forms to the feet like a glove.

Lauren Brinkers is a shoemaker and artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. She earned a degree in footwear at Cordwainers shoemaking school in London in 2008, learned first hand on the job with factory workers in Hackney, bespoke shoemakers on Saville Row, and continued her training with cobblers and fellow shoemakers in New York City.
Her shoes are hand-painted, handmade, and one-of-a kind. They're made with buttery soft vegetable-tanned leather, selected and sourced by the artist herself, painted with eco friendly dyes in limited edition mixed palettes. The minimalist silhouette allows for the painting- a passion of hers that came from a need to experiment freely with color.
