Axis sees Preston Zly develop a bold and simple collection whereby the shape and strong design lines of the style are the hero. Named after the cat’s master in the famous fairytale ‘Puss in Boots’ Carabas was inspired by our commissioned work for the NGV’s Melbourne Now exhibition. Carabas shoe continues our known explorations into the footwear of the past and adds a beautiful Preston Zly signature dovetailed front seam - its simplicity belying this complicated and highly crafted construction. Its strong square toe and heavy heel make these a grounding and tough style - easy to wear, timeless and edgy as always - they represent what you have come to demand from Preston Zly - Great craftsmanship, classic yet not conservative styles with a touch of the unexpected.

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.
