Creating Comfortable Shoes for Women, Pt. IV

2-minute read

Developing the Poppy Barley Flats Collection

It’s the fourth and final instalment of our insider-series, Creating Comfortable Shoes for Women: the Poppy Barley Flats Collection. (here's Pt. I, Pt. II, and Pt. III), so read on and start dreaming up the design of your perfect flat. It’s about to become reality. Comfortable Shoes For Women - Hardware options for Leather pointed toe flats - Spring 2013 Flats Collection - Poppy Barley Hardware Take a peak at our hardware supplier (in a glittering room that truly is a shrine to adornment) and the last stop made by our product development team in León in January. This is a great place to get inspiration for a collection. In our case, we loved the hardware foxes, snakes and skulls we found, so we added them at the last minute, on the spot, as a new custom design option for spring. Comfortable Shoes For Women - Hardware options for Leather pointed toe flats - Spring 2013 Flats Collection - Poppy Barley The Final Step: Be Your Own Stylist This is where you come in. We’ve created our inaugural Flats Collection with the same fit-oriented model as our made to measure boots, but due to the nature of flats, you get to be a little more creative with the design this time around. Love cute animal hardware? Add it to your slippers. Want your flats to be edgy? Choose from our studded heel, skull hardware, or heel zipper option. Design a pair of Mary Jane’s (one of this season’s hottest styles) using colour combinations that reflect your personality. Comfortable Shoes For Women - Hardware options for Leather pointed toe flats - Spring 2013 Flats Collection - Poppy Barley You can customize the Mary-Jane (with removable ankle straps), the Feminine Slipper, the Classic Point and the Contemporary Ballet flat with the following options:
  • Zipper and studded heel details
  • Wild animal hardware
  • Crystal toe hardware
  • Colour blocking options, which lend both an edgy or feminine side to any shoe in the collection.
Comfortable Shoes For Women - Leather pointed toe flats - Spring 2013 Flats Collection - Poppy Barley Retailing at $165, with a wide variety of design detail options, our Poppy Barley Flats are fun, vibrant, comfortable and one-of-a-kind. They can be anything you want them to be. We had a lot of fun designing and picking out the styles we’ll be sporting this spring, so mark your calendars for May 2013: we hope you love Poppy Barley's debut Spring 2013 Flats Collection as much as we do!

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
