The Avant Garde Collection - Karolina, Meme, and Endora

Karolina, Meme, and Endora arrived one month early! All pre-orders containing these shoes have shipped, unless they're awaiting a shoe from a later pre-order batch. 

The Jazz Standards Collection - Bellevue, Claremont, Jane, Kedwardian, and Peggy

Bellevue, Claremont, Jane, Kedwardian, and Peggy are currently available on pre-order with a scheduled delivery estimate to our European warehouse in November. 

The Prism Collection - Anna May, Millie, and new colorways of Bernadette, Londoner, and Gibson

Anna May, Millie, and new colorways of Bernadette (navy/ivory and burgandy/black) Londoner (green and brown) and Gibson (merlot and navy) are currently available on pre-order with a scheduled delivery estimate to our European warehouse in January 2023.

Please note that we do not split-ship orders. All items in an order will ship together once all of the products have come into stock; that means if your order contains a shoe from this pre-order and a shoe from a pre-order arriving later, they'll both ship when the final shoe arrives at our warehouse. For more information about how our pre-orders process works, please read our pre-order information page.
 

Factors currently affecting pre-order schedules

Unfortunately, but not unsurprisingly, we have experienced some significant production delays due to the effects of the pandemic on our supply chain. These have included:
  • Protecting the health of everyone involved in the production of your shoes
  • Impacts on our leather suppliers and shoe component supply chain
  • A critical shortage of shipping containers in China for sea freight is causing global transportation issues.
  • Low capacity and availability of air freight to move completed goods to our warehouses. It's currently taking us 3-4 weeks to move products that have previously taken 4-6 days.
  • Critical capacity issues at most major ports are causing delays due to increased consumer demand for almost all tangible goods.
  • Ongoing truck freight issues within the EU due to a driver shortage
