Named after suffragist Cicely Hamilton, the essence of the Cicely shoe is practical glamour - it has a subtle military feel yet remains a classic feminine style. Designed on our policewoman's last (which is the mold we stretch the leather over and gives each shoe its unique shape) for all day comfort - this is a shoe for striding forth confidently while you take on the world. We have eschewed the prosaic buckle for edgier hardware in the form of mushroom studs which give a toughness to this classic style.
Note the double sole feature - the small platform sits over the top of the sole giving this shoe its distinctive silhouette - the platform is then glued and hand stitched to the shoe - a secret feature just for you (a signature Preston Zly touch)
We have made these in warm comforting colours for this winter - with classic (Melbourne) black, an antiqued and distressed oxblood which is really something, and a rich cognac crocodile print (that I just couldn't resist) toe with burgundy shoe. Since I ordered this style I have realised that it would be just stunning in red – let us know if this is something you would like to order and I’ll get a run of red into production!
This style is for everyday, every situation, everywhere!
The fit of this style is true to size.
