Shoes with a Soul

There's little more comforting than a pair of shoes that welcomes its wearer home. And that's exactly what it feels like to slip on a pair of well loved Aurora Shoes. Assembled organically, using simple cuts of leather and minimal stitching, our shoes form to their owners' feet the way that only natural materials and careful design can.

We are pleased to offer repair services for all the shoes we produce. If your Aurora Shoes are in need of new soles or a bit of repair stitching, send them back to the factory and for a small fee, we'll have them back on your feet quickly.

I received my new Middle English shoes today and I'm in love! I slid them on my feet and they felt like a long lost friend straight out of the box. Thank you so much for working with me when the sandals weren't a good fit for me. I know that I'll be living in my Middle English daily. I'm already dreaming of buying a second pair in black. Thank you again, Diana

A customer is wearing a pair of Burgundy Middle T-Strap shoes by Aurora Shoe Co.    The photo is taken from the customer's perspective, looking down at her new burgundy handmade T-straps.   In Chalk, the words "Aurora Shoes Fit Like A Glove" is written on a blacktop surface, framing her new shoes in the photo.
Hello! You should see the look of utter satisfaction on my face right now! My long (at least it felt like it to me because I was so excited) anticipated shoes came to my porch just now and I was here to meet them. I thought about filming myself opening the box but that seemed silly so I just savored it myself. It reminded me of what it might seem like to open a bottle of vintage wine.
