Lou's Shoes is an artisan leatherworking business from Dunedin, New Zealand. Drawing inspiration from classic vintage styles the collection features outrageously adorable Gaiters, Penny Loafers and Brogues, in miniature! Lou's Shoes are destined to become much-loved mementos, treasured long after they are outgrown.
Perfect for gift-giving, Lou's Shoes come boxed (shoes only) and are light and practical to send. Each pair are handcrafted with care and exceptional attention to detail by me - Lou!
Not only do Lou’s Shoes look good enough to eat, they have also been thoughtfully designed with double-stitched, non-slip suede soles and elasticated ankles. Lou’s Shoes are made from high-quality soft breathable leather and allow plenty of flexibility for growing feet.
I am a trained bespoke shoemaker! I have travelled to Australia to hone my craft and create adult shoes and accessories which are available here.
Dunedin is long-known for it's support of artisan handcraft and as a centre for design innovation. Lou's Shoes workroom is now based at Above Ground, a collective studio, where I share the space and company of like-minded artisans to allow the business to flourish.
