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.


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.

I have an earlier version of the Cicely shoe in bone. I've had them for over five years and get lots of wear out of them. They're very comfortable and make an outfit look really put together. Very practical and very elegant.

This shoe harks back to the 1940's with its ankle strap however it also looks like a dance shoe. Tap shoe maybe? It is delightful and the colour is gorgeous. I am using it my fashion campaign shoot then of course I will wear it myself after! will send relevant photos..

Substantial with an elegant twist

This shoe is incredibly comfortable and solid, thoughtfully and beautifully designed and made for everyday wear but with an elegant twist. Looks great with jeans and occasion dresses. Dee-vine

Gorgeous shoes, comfy & love the colour, antiqued oxblood. My second pair & still planning my next pair. I knew my size but Johanna will swap sizes at no cost! And very helpful. The only problem is I want so many !
