Naked shoes, black ostrich
Booker & Co
The Naked Shoes are a best-selling style that I first produced in black in my first range in AW 2015, they are so popular and so requested that they appear almost every season in new leather and colour versions. This season’s black iteration is a matt black ostrich textured cow leather. Supple and interesting, these are black shoes with attitude! The Naked Shoes have a deconstructed look, with the heel and toe seams a feature on the outside and have hand lasted nails on the heel. The bump toe adds a playful edge. Laces can be wound around the vamp, (pictured) or laced in the traditional way.
Extra toe spring combined with the C width fitting from the beloved ‘Luxford’ last provides the shapely profile and that extra bit of comfort-inducing-width in the toe region!
Lined with black leather and featuring a fully cushioned leather insole of Poron memory foam under the leather sock. In keeping with our commitment to slow fashion the Veg Tan leather outsoles on these shoes are fully replaceable.
Waxed cotton laces.
These shoes have been designed, patterned, prototyped and tested in Melbourne by Karen Booker. Our full size ranges are then handcrafted in Vietnam by artisan cordwainers.
These shoes are sized to fit the modern woman's foot. This means these shoes will not crush your feet but gently encapsulate them.
If you are unsure of what size to order have a look at our chart.
To achieve the most accurate fit you should measure your feet and compare your measurements to the chart, alternatively email us through the measurements and we can select the size that we think will fit you best.
How to measure your feet
Place a piece of paper on a hard floor (not carpet), against the wall.
Stand barefoot on the paper with your heel hard against the wall, legs straight with feet hip width apart.
Make sure the paper has not shifted and is still flat and against the wall.
Draw a line on the paper at the very end of your longest toe.
Measure the distance between the edge of the paper that was against the wall and the line you drew.
Measure it again to double check the measurement.
Do this again with the other foot.
