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.

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.
