The days are getting longer and the holidays are just around the corner so it’s time to update the look and feel of your summer wardrobe. We have a large selection of expertly crafted leather and suede loafers, deck shoes and sandals to add a splash of colour to your holiday wardrobe.
Leather and suede shoes are a great choice for summer footwear as they are naturally hardwearing, breathable and mould comfortably into the shape of your feet while keeping them well supported.
Whether you are going on a beach holiday, sightseeing or staying close to home, you need a pair of shoes that will keep your feet cool and comfortable all day. It’s important that the sole is well designed to ensure great grip and stability on all types of surface from boat to beach or around town and country.
We stock a luxurious collection of shoes from Orca Bay, Chatham Marine and Henri Lloyd that tick all of these boxes and all have one thing in common – they are beautifully handmade and comfortable; once you have worn them you won’t want to take them off!

How to Keep your Shoes Looking Good…
To care for your leather shoes, it is important to wipe off any dirt and allow them to dry naturally – away from any source of heat. To keep the leather supple and protected, treat your summer shoes with a leather care cream spray or leather oil.
For suede shoes, dry them naturally and then brush off any dirt with a hard brush to bring up the suede and keep your shoes looking their best. Then spray them with suede protector to repel the water and dirt.
