We were mentioned in Telegraph
31st Dec 2018 mention in Telegraph Newspaper "SIR - For many years I have patronised a firm called Simple Way, based in Tyne and Wear. They sell shoe kits, which you can make up yourself, or they will make them for you. Just let them know the sizes you want. They are very comfortable, too. Philip Glascoe, Canterbury, Kent" - thank you Philip

Why our Shoes are so comfortable
Each pair of our sandals, shoes and boots is handmade to order especially for you. The soles are especially made for us, they are flexible and shock absorbing. Each pair of footwear is fitted with padded handmade insoles. Quality leather uppers are also hand sewn onto the soles. We make each pair to order so do please send us your measurements first.

If you enjoy crafts
...and you can thread a needle you'll be able to follow our easy instructions to create your own individual leather bag, rucksack belt and accessories. You can even make your own shoes, boot and sandals. Our foot comfort is legendary and you'll be so proud to have made them yourself.
Our handmade leather kits have everything you need - there's nothing to cut or glue and all the holes are pre punched so it's not even hard on your fingers! You'll be hand sewing using simple stitches like running stitch and backstitch.
Our shoes, boots and sandals really are ' the most comfy shoes you'll wear ' and as we create each pair using a different mix of pattern pieces we can accommodate odd sized left and right feet and even single shoes.
If you love the idea of something made by hand plus fabulous foot comfort, but don't want to make them yourself - our entire range is available Ready Made by our skilled team so you can use them straight away.
