18/06/2012 - Workshop at Green Shoes
The handmade artisan shoes that we have made on Green Shoes workshopOnce upon a time we had a question: what about vegan shoes? People who don't want to eat meat, should not wear leather. But what do they put on their shoes? After all, it's not only the leather: contact glue also comes from animals.

Searching and searching we found Green Shoes in England, a lovely shoemaking shop... Which had vegan shoes and courses on shoemaking. We could not let this opportunity pass to learn new methods and how to work new materials. Meeting shoemakers abroad was also thrilling.

21/05/2012 - "Pretty and healthy", sandals hiding orthopedic insoles
Pretty and Healthy, sandàlies per dur amb plantilles ortopèdiquesA few weeks ago we got a special request: the mother of a 12 year old girl, prescribed with orthopedic insoles asked us to make a pair of summer sandals.

A true challenge. Sandals are an open shoe, and it is almost impossible to buy one that can hide an insole while preventing it from escaping through the tip or the heel. After thinking for a while and making all the required measurements, not only of the feet but also of the insoles that should be hid, we designed this model.

The final result is a shoe, an open and ventilated sandal, keeping fresh feet all summer long, but with a fancy tip and heel to keep the insoles from escaping. The insoles are also invisible from the sides, since they have a reinforced leather side around the soles.

Even if making orthopedic shoes is not our goal, we are very happy with the result of the "Pretty & Healthy"... a name we think is true to form.

Are you also forced to wear orthopedic insoles and summer feels like hell? Contact us and we'll think what we can do!

18/02/2012 - Boots are made for walking, Little Mermaid!
Little Mermaid Boots - The Fancy PuffinReady for your purchasing pleasure: these beautiful boots for a lucky person with a 40 size (European size).

They are called Little Mermaid, since their shape and colour reminds us of the ellegance of a mermaid.

The reed of the boot is a grayish blue, with a scale texture and peach skin feeling.
The toecap is yellow suede and the heel is also golden yellow, but this is normal leather to make it easier to clean if it gets dirty after a day's walk. We have added a small detail in the front of the boot with the same golden yellow leather.
The boot zips on the side with a golden metallic zipper. In the beginning the zipper may feel strong, but it will get smoother with use.

All leather is cow leather, lining and outside alike.

If you have any doubt about the ease of fitting, just have a look at the picture where the reed is unzipped: the reed is soft and smooth, it will adapt to your step without resistance.
You can see more pictures for these boots at our Etsy Shop.

Total height of the boot is 48cm.
The heel is 7cm and the sole is crepelina, a durable and antiskid material.
The reed is standard-sized, with a  diameter of 35cm. Be sure to measure your calves before making the purchase... And remember that if these boots would not fit you, we can make a similar pair for your exact size :-)

If you have any doubt about the Little Mermaid boots, don't doubt and contact us.

And if you are completely sure you want them, make the purchase before anyone else does!

Sabates a les seves formesBy popular demand, we have finally published The Fancy Puffin webpage, our brand to sell shoes.

Although we have some models ready and our brains are overflowing with ideas, our Etsy shop is still a little empty. Give us a few weeks before you start binge buying our shoes.

Thanks a lot to everybody who encouraged us to get here. The Fancy Puffin owes you a little something.

See you soon!
