It has an extended size ranging from EU 34 – 44, and is handcrafted with buttery-soft premium lambskin leather, thoughtfully and uniquely made for those with broad feet and even bunions. Their latest colour collection is called Go Bold or Go Nude! for The Bow series – which features two distinguished colours: versatile nude and luscious burgundy.
