Marlene Ankle boot is one of my favourite styles ever. The Marlene last (which is the mold we stretch the leather over and gives each shoe its unique shape) was designed to be a modern take on a very classic 1930's shape - with a slightly militaristic feel. We've taken this classic shape and made the toe slightly bulbous and the tiniest bit asymmetrical. This design was conceived exactly as it eventually materialized - a very rare occurrence - as usually there is a lot of organic design process involved - I hope you agree that this is just the perfect bootie! I love the curved Cuban style heel that has become a signature Preston Zly motif and the simple circular side elastic. Simplicity at it's best - sometimes less is definitely more.

We are offering this style in two classic colourways - winter white and antiqued and distressed oxblood for those of you who like a classic winter palette. Then we've added two amazing colour pops - metallic green and metallic pink - both distressed and antiqued for depth and so they don't look like Christmas tree baubles. Metallic leathers are notoriously difficult to work with and maintain – the antiquing process takes the risk out of the maintenance of these leathers as all you need to do is simply polish them with black nugget! Perfect splashes of colour for our (we hope) post Covid re-entry into the world and celebrations!

The fit of this style is true to size.


We understand you might feel it's risky buying luxury shoes online without the opportunity to try them on - and that's why we're here for you all the way. Please feel free to contact Johanna: or +61 426 889 404 to discuss fit prior to purchase if you have any queries.

There is some general sizing info in our FAQs page. We are also more than happy to send you a pair or two to try. And of course we offer a full refund should the style and/or fit be unsuitable. We are here to make sure your online shopping experience is as fabulous as the one you would have in store.

And yes, as you well know, extraordinarily beautiful things, designed with consideration and crafted finely, don't come cheap.

In a time when the ‘exclusive’ European brands we so often associate with the term ‘limited edition’, are making their shoes in the tens and hundreds of thousands per style at prices often  exceeding $1300, our micro team at Preston Zly are making around 500 pairs a year – by hand – spread over 16 designs. Now that’s what I call limited edition.

In heaven

God I love these shoes... this is my second pair... in a different colour this time. I loved my other ones so much I wore them out! I was so happy to see them make their appearance again. Johanna is always so helpful and attentive, boy she knows her shoes and what the fit should be like and when she looks at your foot she just knows what size and what will work. She's an absolute gem.
