The Eugenia

A classic mary jane flat, reimagined, The Eugenia is a timeless fan favorite. Featuring kidskin leather, a square toe, angular topline, covered buckle, and oval-shaped heel this flat is anything but basic. Like an old friend, The Eugenia is there through it all in comfort and effortless style. 

Pair The Eugenia with oversized shapes for a juxtaposition that just works. Look to wide-leg trousers, voluminous skirts, and oversized button-ups or sweaters for an effortlessly cool office look.

The practicality of The Eugenia in Black Glaze is no debate. Those looking for a non-traditional staple will enjoy Miel Croco or Leopard.

The Mule

An elevated take on the style, The Mule adds an interesting twist to any look. With a sleek cut-out upper, almond-shaped toe, and a stacked heel, The Mule keeps things interesting. Thanks to its skin-baring design, this shoe is great for warmer climates or transitional seasons.

Pair The Mule with inspired office staples for a streamlined look that evokes elegance with an edge. To feel put together without second-guessing, style The Mule with tapered trousers, a sleek midi skirt, a silk button-up, or an oversized blazer.

Look to The Mule in Black Glaze as a timeless investment.

The Pilar Mule

Make a statement with The Pilar Loafer. Inspired by menswear, this loafer has a masculine feel and a playful attitude. Featuring a leather link detail, a square toe, and low heel this perennial silhouette is ideal for every day. 

Pair The Pilar Loafer with structured fabrics and shapes for a luxe, sophisticated look. Have some fun with a leather button-up shirt and tweed skirt, or stick to basics for a never-fail look. 

Minimalists looking for a forever loafer will enjoy this style in Black. Untraditional dressers look to Miel for a luxe earthy tone.


The Inia

A cool and modern take on the ballet flat, The Inia is a sister style to The Eugenia. With a square toe, oval heel, asymmetrical top line, and leather-trimmed edges, The Inia is a study on sophistication and subtlety.

Pair The Inia with masculine and angular pieces for a cool and feminine-but-not-girly office look. Explore styling with cropped straight-leg trousers, oversized sweaters, monochromatic pairing, and layering. 

Add The Inia in Black this season to build an arsenal of classic silhouettes.

The Glove Flat

Ballet flats 2.0, The Glove Flat is an elegant slip-on flat. This style feels a touch more feminine and classic than The Inia thanks to an almond-shaped toe, high-cut v-shaped vamp, and low sculpted heel.

Pair The Glove Flat with a balance of tailored and oversized suiting for a powerful streamlined look that is infinitely chic, yet effortless. 

Look to The Glove Flat in Black for a style that will be worn over and over again.

The Loafer

A non-basic, basic The Loafer is an inspired dependable style. With an almond-shaped toe, a square opening, and a stacked heel with just enough chunk, The Loafer is an inventive forever piece. 

Pair The Loafer with just about anything. For an interesting office look, try leather straight-leg trousers and a leather button-up for a monochromatic all-leather look that is anything but expected. 

Get dressed with ease with The Loafer in Black Glaze.


The Delfina

For a streamlined look, The Delfina is the answer. Featuring a 1.75-inch heel, delicate leather straps, a square footbed, and a provocatively bare nature, this sandal gives any look an instant boost. 

Pair The Delfina with anything and everything. For a classic office look, a pair of classic black trousers and a crisp white button-up is a foolproof uniform. 

Invest in a reliable go-to with The Delfina in Black.

The Lagos

If heels are out of the question, look to The Lagos. This sandal combines the ease of a flip-flop with the structure and sophistication of a leather slide. Featuring square corners and a strappy nature, The Lagos is the definition of ease. 

Pair The Lagos just as you would The Delfina.

Look to The Lagos in Black for the ultimate wardrobe sandal.
