Made On Demand:

Our products are not mass-produced. They are made “on demand”, meaning they are lovingly hand-crafted just for you once ordered, and then are packaged and shipped directly to you from our amazingly talented overseas product makers! The handmade nature of these boots means that there may be slight variations in image placement from what you see on your screen. The images are a digital mock-up of what they will look like, so please use them as a guide only, and remember that colours may look different depending on what screen you are viewing them on. 

Sizing:

These boots are a wide fit and true to size, so order your usual size and you should be fine! If you often vary between two sizes depending on the style of shoe, then we recommend going with the smaller of your usual sizes, as most of our size exchanges are from people needing a size smaller. Please note that sizes are shown in AU and EU sizing. For US size conversions, please see the size chart.

Standard shipping is free for all footwear! 

As our products are made on demand (with the exception of our Clearance collection), please note that you will not receive your tracking number until your order has been made, packaged and shipped out. Usually this takes about a week and shipping takes (on average) an additional 1-2 weeks, however occasionally we may see longer production and/or delivery timeframes thanks to Covid doing its thing and just the general state of shipping services these days. 

Don't worry, they are worth the wait!

Love these boots!

I loved these boots on sight and had to buy them. For a number of reasons... for my work, where we are committed to bringing Indigenous culture in many ways into our work culture.
They were red.. my favourite colour for my footwear.. I relate them to power and strength...and of course being LGBTI.. to Dorothy and her red slippers!
I also wanted them for Woodford, where I am Volunteer Manager for The Fire Event team.
Imagine my delight to find out one of my friends from Uni designed them... and on asking her , her joy that I bought them!
Then I asked her what the design meant... and in her mob language it meant yarns around the fire.
Perfect for work... where I also attend a fortnightly meeting called Yarns around the fire, run by an Aboriginal woman who was happy to see this language was her own mob language!
Perfect for Woodford.. and our Fire Event! We tell yarns/story around fire.
And Perfect for wearing to Parliament House for the signing of The Paris Accord to End HIV, as red is the World AIDS Day colour, and I wanted to bring the story of our First Nation's folk, who are highly affected by HIV, into the room with us.
So.. these boots are perfect.
I wore them in the mud and heat of Woodford. They were admired by many! They worked hard and wore well.. and no blisters!
Many thanks!
