Corbière Paraders


*Now sold, style now archived*
A made to order limited edition design from The Recherché Collection. This is an example of our 'Parader' design. Retaining the elegant extended shape of the popular Promenader and Lounger styles, but with a squared off toe. Only ONE pair in total will be made before the style is archived, as we only have a single pair of the spectacular antique Edwardian silk soutache embellishments. As this is a made to order style, it is possible to choose the Promenader pointed toe (available in sizes 36-43) rather than the Parader squared toe (sizes 37-42), just state your preference in notes at checkout. Delivery is appoximately 8 weeks after ordering.

Lustrous ebony black silk viscose velvet with appliquéd vintage silk soutache medallion.

The fabric is mounted on a soft suede inner lining. Sole and 1cm block heel are man-made fibre.

Please get in touch if you would prefer to split the payment in two, with a 50% deposit to confirm your order, and balance  (+ shipping) payable when ready to ship.

The textile has been treated with an eco-friendly stain guard, based on nano-technology, (and containing absolutely none of those hideous PFOAs that have been slowly poisoning the environment over the last 70 years) which will help to protect the surface of the fabrics from stains, but it should be noted that these couture materials need to be respected and treated with sure to remove them before jumping in puddles please! 

IMPORTANT: Please be sure to read both our shipping and refund policy pages before placing an order (links to both at foot of page). By placing an order you are indicating you have read and accepted these terms.

Vegan options? Yes we can substitute the leather lining for a vegan friendly alternative, and can also ensure that any silk is substituted for an option compatible with Vegans. Just get in touch to discuss further... 

Sustainability Every time a pair of shoes is purchased a donation is made via Ecologi to both offset the carbon involved in production and shipping and make a positive net contribution to combatting climate change....that's 15 trees planted per pair.

Packaging Each pair of shoes is nestled in a high quality presentation box made from 92% recycled materials which can be wholly recycled at end of life (once ribbon and magnetic closure have been removed and recycled separately). Essential as recycling is, it is not carbon neutral, so I wanted the boxes to have as long an after-life as possible. The sturdy construction and minimal branding make them really attractive keepsake and storage boxes that hopefully will prove useful for many years to come. The lid is handstamped with our beautiful calligraphy logo, and zig-zag shred (made from non-coated recyclable bio-degradable paper) is used for the protective padding.
