If you are a regular reader of my posts here at fashionfoodtravel.com then you will know about my love of shoes and my search for different, new, interesting and above all stylish shoe options for men which can be quite limiting at times.
It was the Facebook recommendation by my friend Aurelio Costarella that caught my eye and made me take a look and what a pleasant surprise to find an Australian owned company based in Sydney. They specialise in hand crafted men’s leather shoes. They started in 2007, by Paul Waddy and they now sell their shoes all over the world via their online store and in Australia are stocked in every David Jones store.
One of the things that I love about them is that offer free, fast delivery across both Australia and New Zealand and include tracking for all items sent so you can keep an eye on when your new shoes will arrive!
They also have the most amazing exchange and return policy, offering 100 day returns, refunds or exchanges no matter what the reason, which is unheard of for most online shopping experiences. They will also pay the return shipping in full on any full priced shoe that you want to return. Amazing!
Their specialty is men’s leather dress shoes, with an emphasis on delivering beautiful pieces at really reasonable prices. They are well known for their collection of quality brogues, and derbies, but they also include fashion and statement pieces with each collection, which is one of the other things I love about them. They have new styles delivered every month, and on a big variety of the newest fashions in men’s shoes.
And the other thing that they do that no other Australian men’s shoe maker does is have lots of colour options for different shoes that they do! Yes we sometimes all need a good black or brown dress shoe but having a choice of red, orange, aqua and many others is such a refreshing option and one that I love.
They also heavily promote themselves on Facebook and currently offer online shoppers the chance to get an extra 20% off their end of season stock…and with some prices starting at just $35 in the sale stock there are some real bargains there to take advantage of. I know that I have!
You can check them out online at http://www.antoineandstanley.com oh and if you are heading there in the next couple of days the code to get 20% off is VIPSALE 20…
