Frequently Asked Questions
What size should I order if I wear a half size?
We recommend sizing up to the nearest whole size for all shoes except for our knit and Elstech collections as these styles will provide more stretch and mold to your foot.
Please refer to our size chart for additional details.
Are the shoes washable and can they be put in the dryer?
Most of our shoes are machine washable. We recommend removing the insole, washing on the gentle cycle inside a garment bag and air dry. It is advised not to put the shoes to dry direct sunlight as it may have an adverse effect on the color dye.

Are your shoes waterproof?
While our shoes are not waterproof they are considered water resistant under normal circumstances. To help extend the life of your products, you may consider using a clear nubuck treatment for additional protection of your leather products. Please be advised we are not responsible for damage caused to your shoes by using over the counter sprays. You should always do a small test spot as some materials may change appearance with the application of such treatments.

Is the Lolita considered a water shoe?
The Lolita is a fantastic travel companion that is lightweight and quick drying; however, we do not recommend it be submerged into bodies of water (i.e. ocean, pool, lake, etc.). This may cause discoloration and/or distortion of the shoe’s structure.
