FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why are some items listed as pre-order?
Most of our styles are produced in limited quantities to avoid overproduction. If your preferred style/size is marked as pre-order, it implies that we will make it for you and ship it to you within 4 weeks, after it is carefully hand made at our workshop.
How do I know if an item is in stock?
If an item is out of stock, our pre-order message will be displayed in red: 'This size is available to pre-order, please allow 4 weeks for delivery' Pre-order items are made to order; we don't keep stock, so if you would like to order that style, we'll make it for you.
If an item cannot be pre-ordered at that time, the 'Add to Cart' option will be greyed out.
These are for my wedding or a very special event. Can you rush my order?
Every order is important to us, and we strive to deliver your shoes as quickly as possible. If you have a tight deadline, please let us know and we will do everything we can to meet it. If you need your wedding shoes for a dress fitting, we may loan you shoes with the same heel height so that the alterations can be completed.
Can I order over the phone?
Yes, please phone +44 (0) 207 704 0012 to talk with one of our boutique stylists. We are based in London, UK, and may be reached Monday through Saturday between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. GMT. Alternatively, book a Virtual Appointment with a member of our styling team to receive the boutique experience from the comfort of your own home.
Do you have sales or sample sales?
Yes, but they're usually only available for a limited time, and styles sell out quickly, so sign up for our newsletter to be the first to know about promotions, seasonal deals, and sample sales.
How will I know that my order has been placed successfully?
You will get a notification email when your order has been placed, followed by tracking information when your product ships. We are always happy to update you on your order. Just contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number.
I just purchased an item on pre-order. How long will it take to ship?
Within four weeks of receiving your order, we will dispatch your shoes. Your shoes may be ready sooner in some situations, but we will keep you informed throughout the process.
How long does the bespoke service take?
Our bespoke service might take anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks, depending on the customization options. We will discuss exact timelines based on your preferences when ordering a bespoke product, and we will keep you updated as your order advances. Because all of our shoes and clutches are handcrafted and all of our decorations are hand stitched, bespoke creations take a bit longer.

About Our Shoes
Can I still order a past-season item?
While we may not have older styles in stock, you can usually request them through our bespoke service. After that, your chosen style will be made to order.
What shoes to wear for an outdoor wedding/event?
For outdoor occasions, our block heel shoes are the most popular. The stable yet stylish block heel is ideal for lawns, cobblestone, and gravel. Our flat styles are also fantastic; our sandals are perfect for garden weddings, and our flat pumps are a sophisticated option for formal occasions.
Are the shoes comfortable?
Emmy achieves the ideal balance in all of her styles by making them both beautiful and comfortable. Emmy believes you need a fundamental degree of comfort in your shoes to feel confident in them. Emmy accomplishes this by ensuring that the lasts and heels are exactly proportioned and that each size is graded. She also includes padded insoles and incredibly soft uppers, as well as optimal heel heights at comfortable pitches. Emmy considers her shoes to be stunning designs with the added benefit of unrivalled comfort.
Do you offer customisation?
Yes, you can choose the colour, material, heel height, decorations, and a range of sizes, including split sizes, with our bespoke service. Your birthstone gemstone can also be added to the sole of your shoes. Go to Bespoke to learn more about our Bespoke Service and customisation options.

Can I order a swatch to check the colour and material?
Yes, you can order swatches. Head to our swatch page to select the options you would like to try.
Sizing & Fit
My shoes are a bit snug. Will they break in?
Emmy carefully chooses the finest suede and leathers that are really soft and break in quickly, so don't worry if your shoes are a touch tight at first; they will give.
We use premium satins and velvets for some of our bridal and evening shoes; these styles have a little more structure than others, but once broken in, they have a little more give. If you need any guidance when it comes to finding your perfect size, please use our live chat.
Any recommendations for shoes for wide feet?
We have a number of styles for wide feet; these are EEE sized and very comfortable. Our open-toe bridal sandals, such as Cinderella, are roomy and also comfy for slightly wider feet.
I am in between sizes. Which size should I get?
This varies by style; check out the Fit Information section on the product page; this information is product specific and can help you decide. Alternatively, our team of stylists are delighted to assist you; please contact them via live chat or email.
Can I change the heel height?
Our bespoke service allows you to adjust the heel height of most of our designs. We offer precise heels for each height to provide the proper balance and so that you feel comfortable walking in your shoes. More information on our Bespoke Service can be found here.
Where can I find sizing information?
On each product page, directly above the size options, there is a link to the sizing guide. There's also a section called "Fit Information" that details how each style fits. If you have any further issues about sizing, please contact us via live chat or email at email@example.com.
What is the size range available?
For most of our core collection, we usually have sizes 36 to 42 in stock, but we can produce anything from 34 to 44, even half sizes. We make these in smaller and larger sizes to-order to avoid overproduction. Please use the live chat or email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about ordering alternative sizes.
Do you offer a repair service?
Yes, we undertake repairs and cleanings in-house. However, if you want your shoes dyed, we can recommend London-based cobblers who do so. To learn more about our repair, cleaning, and dying services, click here.
