*2020 Free Local Delivery:

We are happy to deliver in Toronto's West End: Approximately 6Km radius around the store. We drop it on the front porch or where instructed to allow for minimal contact.

If your delivery requires any special instruction, please include them in the order notes.

 

Online Ordering

We are happy to sell you shoes, gifts and accessories and ship them to you. We work with Shopify for swift and secure payment. After you have made your order and the payment is confirmed we will ship (usually by Canada Post). 

With the shoes we will contact you if I have noticed any irregularities. Shoe fitting can be a tricky business and with a little bit of information we can do a much better job of ensuring the shoes you want fit you properly. 

 

Online Return Policy

Please contact us as soon as possible if there are any issues with your order. If you are looking to exchange an item we only cover shipping costs if there was a mistake on our end, otherwise all shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer. Proof of purchase is required for any returns or exchanges. Sale items are a final sale. Email us or call us 416 893 0173 if something has arrived damaged or not as expected and we will do our best to resolve the issue immediately.  

In Store Return Policy

We offer 14 days for exchanges or refunds. We require a receipt for any returns or exchanges. Sale items are a final sale. 

*Holiday Returns:

Due to COVID restrictions, we will have to figure this one out as we go. Normally, we ask all Christmas returns and exchanges to be completed no later than the end of the 1st week of January. We're not sure where the safety measures will be at that time, but we will do our best to ensure everyone's happiness and deal with these items on a case by case basis. Not sure? Contact us.

About Us (Well, about Jeff and Cayla).

Having worked in the footwear industry for the past 10 years, in retail, design and product development I figured it was time to start something for myself. We both graduated from OCAD in industrial design and spent some time out west working.

I was particularly impressed with a small boutique factory from Mexico I met a few years ago. I decided they would be a great fit for starting my women’s collection. The factory, Altura Siete makes their shoes by hand in small batches. Their design sense is intricate and delicate and their access to leather allows for an uncommonly multi-coloured palette.

My men’s (and now some women's) shoes are made in Portugal. My Portuguese factory provides a very high quality product, goodyear welted construction using proper leather lining and leather soles. I arrived at a small and interesting collection for gentlemen to enjoy, both to dress up in or to wear casually and I will continue to expand in new directions.

After a few years developing shoes I decided diversifying and Cayla came on board to introduce new products and a focus on jewelry and giftware and general super awesome buying. 

We now team up with lots of local Toronto and Canadian designers to keep it fresh as well as carrying some amazing accessories from around the world. A very generous and unique assortment of greeting cards. Socks and small accessories from Danica and Blue Q, handmade Leather bags and leather goods from Uppdoo, beautiful jewelry made locally in Toronto by Cayla herself as well as Pika & Bear, Ink & Alloy and Lover's Tempo. Handmade bow ties from Cursor & Thread in Vancouver. Soaps and candles from Formulary 55 and Anecdote Candle. Plenty of gift ware like mugs, planter kits, vegan accessories plus loads more coming in all the time.

Our door is always open (during regular hours) and we welcome everyone to drop by and have a look.

Cheers,

Jeff Brodawka and Cayla Hache
