On-line Ordering

I am happy to sell you shoes, gifts and accessories and ship them to you. I work with Shopify for swift and secure payment. After you have made your order and the payment is confirmed I will ship (usually by Canada Post). With the shoes I will contact you if I have noticed any irregularities. Shoe fitting can be a tricky business and with a little bit of information I can do a much better job of ensuring the shoes you want fit you properly.

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.

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 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 Vancouver Candle. Plenty of gift ware like mugs, planter kits, vegan accessories, pouches from Danica 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
