Meet the Shoemaker
An atelier run by a husband and wife team that makes some of our most popular styles.
Love the look of these shoes it took several times wearing these to break them in but in the end love them!
Gorgeous - As Always!
These are my second pair of Fortress of Inca shoes and I plan to make it the second of a few more. The comfort of the shoe, particularly after my feet have not worn anything close to a heel in the last two years, makes this boot easy to walk in for many blocks! The leather is gorgeous and while I was apprehensive about buying such a light color, I have leather conditioner to help keep it healthy. Thank you Fortress for another excellent shoe!
The perfect boot
I have three pairs of Alexandra Paige and I’ll probably go for a fourth. They’re the perfect profile and heel height. The leather is buttery soft and the shoes themselves are so comfortable I could wear them to work and THEN out.
The leather was very rough and dry. I had to condition the leather to soften and improve the leather. The original color was an orange brown. I was hoping for a richer brown. With conditioning the leather, it darkened the color to a nicer brown.
This is an incredible everyday boot, but also totally works for a night out. Very versatile and comfortable.
