Stylish Summer Canvas Pumps with Hidden Depth

Why are our wide-fitting pumps so good?
Well, it’s because they’re just like a regular canvas pump but with extra height and extra depth that is cleverly hidden within the bumper sole, so they don’t look as wide & deep as they really are and they are SO comfortable!

Two removable cushioned insoles make them super-comfy and allow you to vary the amount of internal space available in the shoe for extra comfort or to insert your own orthotic or specialist insoles and in-built heel stiffeners offer increased stability.

There are lace-up styles like Yoko and Mira designed for extra security of fit and adjustability for more active feet, or easy slip-on styles with elasticated inserts or straps for easy access and improved fit, like Coup or Libra.

You’ll find bold summer colours to really grab the attention, or cute pastel colours to accentuate your outfit.

What’s more, all of these styles are made with no animal products, making them suitable for people living a vegan lifestyle.
