Your wedding shoes should make you feel confident and your best all day long, so consider these 5 tips to buy your perfect pair!
Designed in the UK and handcrafted in Spain, Rachel Simpson shoes are known for their unique design and recognisable signature style. With their unmistakeable comfort and elegant wearable style, they are the perfect choice for any special occasion
The proudly British well-loved Rachel Simpson brand was established back in 2008, born from the designer’s long-standing love affair with shoe making and shoe design. Having spent several years designing for a number of high street brands, Rachel’s real passion was for well designed, beautifully unique handmade shoes. Having produced numerous bespoke designs for bridal clients (including her sister’s wedding shoes), she spotted a gap in the market to make this look available at an affordable price without losing the quality. The brand was born, and the rest is a beautifully crafted history.
Every shoe is designed at the company’s head office in the UK, and then skilfully made by hand in the Rachel Simpson factory in Alicante, Spain. Originally known for their vintage inspired wedding shoes, the Rachel Simpson collection now incorporates a wide variety of wedding shoe styles, as well as stunning occasion shoes, evening shoes and matching handbags. Made from the highest quality leather, suede and fabric, Rachel Simpson shoes are well known for being as comfortable as they are beautiful. Any bride will know how important it is to have shoes that don’t just look good, but are good to dance in too! Each pair is carefully crafted, with thoughtful design and skilled pattern cutting ensuring the perfect fit, with leather linings allowing the foot to breathe. All shoes are available in UK sizes 2- 9 (EU 35- 43), and fit a broad range of width fittings. With such soft leather uppers the shoes get more comfortable the more you wear them, moulding to your individual foot shape providing you with a truly bespoke fit.
As well as their incredible comfort, Rachel Simpson are also well known for their love of coloured wedding shoes. With a signature passion for pastel coloured shoes, the original collection includes mint green leather, blush suede, pale blue leather as well as many styles in metallic gold, silver and rose gold. More recently the brand has introduced bold, on-trend colour for the fashion-forward bride, stylish wedding guest or party goer including red, black and bright blue suede, emerald green and plum velvet as well as glitter- lots and lots of glitter! Perfect for winter weddings and the party season, the latest collection includes gold, silver and red sparkly shoes which would make even Cinderella jealous!
