Founded by Shola Asante in 2017 after she struggled to find shoes that fitted comfortably and reflected her sense of style, Sante + Wade is a women's’ shoe brand which aims to offer choice, comfort and quality. It’s a fantastic option for those of us with plus-sized feet, as you can order all the styles in either a standard or a wide width – they also go up to a European size 46, which is around a UK size 11!
While the brand is London-based, all the shoes are handmade in Europe from premium European leathers. They’re designed inclusively to fit longer or wider shapes, and their high quality means that they’ll be pepping up your power-walk for many years to come.
Choose from styles including pumps, sandals, slides and loafers. Pumps will set you back a cool £195, and come in a sleek, heeled design (available in four colours). They’re partly made from soft nappa leather. Sandals (cheaper, at £92) come in two heeled designs, both with an elegant ankle buckle. You can pick from a variety of vibrant Mediterranean colours.
Sliders come in white, black or a warm orange, with a single simple – yet stylish – design. They feature a rounded toe and soft nappa leather interior. Loafers are crafted from suede and leather for a truly indulgent piece, with squared toes and a slight heel. Extra options are in the pipeline – including Sante + Wade’s first-ever sneaker design, The Queenie. This will feature luxurious white leather and high-density memory foam for a super-comfortable, super-stylish shoe.
Sante + Wade offers a standard returns policy, allowing you to exchange or refund any item you’re not entirely happy with up to 14 days after purchase.
