Flats that are good for you

Ballet flats are a wardrobe essential, but they're definitely not good for you with their uncomfortably narrow fit and lack of cushioning. We constantly had sore spots or aching arches.

Most flats are only focused on the look and completely ignore the fit and comfort.

So working with expert designers we examined everything wrong with the traditional flat and re-imagined it from the ground up. 1,840 hours and 12 revisions later, the result: The softest, best-fitting all-day flats in a timeless design.

Why you'll love it!

The secret lies in the insole. Traditional flats typically feel like your walking on the hard ground with no support whatsoever. 

Our LORA Sole is your hidden sidekick that keeps you feeling & looking your best all day, every day. It's squishy, has arch support and evens out pressure. Seriously; you'll feel fresh after hours of walking.

Wide Toe-Box

Let your toes spread out the way nature intended them to. By slightly altering the shape we kept the sleek, elegant look but it's so much better for your toes. Plus it's lined with wool, so no rubbing here.

Moves with you

Made from Mould-to-your-feet leather, Empress Flats are designed to fit like a glove which means there's no need for band-aids. The soft material will literally 'cup' your heel so it doesn't slip off no matter how much you dance, run, or jump.
