Babi Circle grew from two details that inspired the design - the circle flap detail and the Weldschoeden stitching around the front of the shoe - the winged toe cap was a surprise added extra that emerged late in the design process. We had to push our makers to bring you this beautiful shoe as it was the first time they had attempted this complicated sole stitching - whereby the upper leather is wrapped around an extended insole and then hand stitched to the sole. This brings you a classic look with a hard European edge and an earthy twist!
The fit of this style is on the small side and we recommend ordering 1 size larger than normal.
As part of our Classics collection, if you cannot find the size you want in the colour ways offered, we can arrange a special order for you.

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.
