How do they fit?

The last of all La Botte Gardiane models is French and therefore slightly narrow. Here is my advice:

Annematt loafer - order 1 size larger than your normal size

Bottines ankle boots suede - Narrow & 'average feet' = order your normal size as the suede is very soft so the boots will quickly adapt to your feet. In case you have a high arch or wide feet; please order half a size larger.

Bottines ankle boots pony hair - please order half a size larger.

French size 38 = UK 5, size 39 = UK6, etc

Zespa Aix-en-Provence sneakers fall quite large; if you are a size 38.5 you can take Zespa size 38. Please use our SIZETABLE to be more precise.



All materials used are of high quality and we try to use as much 100% naturally tanned leather for the shoes as possible. Better for the environment and better for yourselves! The lack of chemicals in the leather provides for better 'breathing'. 

All soles are made of leather with an added 'patin' - a rubber to protect the sole. The Annematt loafer has smooth leather soles.


Oh no - grease on my suede!

If this happens, try adding little bit of vinegar to the stain, and gently brush with a toothbrush.
