This 2.5-inch heeled ankle boot in our Distressed Brown leather and a V-shape topline was born to be admired. The leather article can be scratched (and still look good), or buffed out with ease. The padded insoles provide a confident lift and unmatched comfort—whether you're on the dancefloor or on your next roadtrip.
Leather: A full-grain leather with a distressed finish; scratches can be buffed out with ease.
About the Owner: This factory was founded twenty years ago by Lupita. Poppy Barley co-founders Kendall and Justine Barber serendipitously met Lupita when their shoe broker Laura’s 12-year old daughter came home and reported her best friend’s mom (Lupita) could make custom footwear (did you catch all that?). This was the beginning of the Poppy Barley partnership (and became the original Poppy Barley factory) formed by four women: Kendall, Justine, Lupita and Laura.
About the Factory: Lupita recruited all of her shoemakers from the sample rooms of León’s top manufacturers. (It is in the sample rooms of larger factories where the first prototype of every new shoe style is handcrafted before it is mass-produced by an assembly line.) The artisans have decades of experience in shoemaking, having launched their careers when it was still the norm to make shoes entirely by hand.
Creating a clean and safe environment for Lupita’s team is of utmost importance, and in the 20 years that her factory has been manufacturing shoes they have remained accident-free.
We screen all our factories to ensure positive working conditions, including a living wage, full-time permanent employment with benefits, reasonable working hours, vacation and sick benefits, and ongoing training and opportunity.
