TRACKING YOUR ORDER

When dispatching your order, we will send a confirmation email with the tracking information. Please note that the status can take a bit of time to update.
How do I know when my delivery will arrive?
How does your sizing come up?
We want to make sure you find the perfect fit, we have created a handy size guide to provide you with more information on finding your correct size. We have specifically chosen materials that naturally give and mould to the foot. Contact our Customer Care Team for more specific advice on fit.
What about if I’m in between sizes?
We would always suggest opting for your true size. However if you find that you are in between our sizes, there are a few solutions. We work closely with a London based cobbler who works with our shoes and can offer some solutions. Reputable cobblers will be able to offer stretching and other fit solutions for the shoes.
Can I return shoes?
What heel heights and sizes do you offer?
The range is available in sizes 36-41, unfortunately we do not offer half sizes. All styles come with foam cushioning and Technogel® insert at the heel for added comfort.
70-80mm: Our highest heel. Extra padding in the sole makes them a great choice on days when you want to embrace heels but need to be on your feet.
40-45mm: Mid-height heel – a stylish and practical heel for frequent wear. Just the right amount of poise, but with the stamina and support of a block heel and the magic of our Technogel padding.
25mm: Our elevated wear-all-day flat shoe, beautifully designed and considered to serve as the finishing touch to endless looks.
Where can I try them on?
The full shoe collection is available at our Chelsea Store. We’d love to book you an appointment and introduce you to the collection. If you cannot make it to the store, our Customer Care Team would be happy to answer any questions about fabric and fit!
What sets your shoes apart?
This luxurious new collection puts style, quality and comfort highest on the agenda. The curved heel is unique to The Fold. It is designed with a defined waist and flared at the bottom to add stability and avoid any unflattering wobbles. Comfort is crucial to dressing with confidence, so we’ve added extra padding under the ball of the foot, under the toes and in the heel. You’ll also find injected rubber on the leather sole for extra grip. No matter what your mood or occasion, we’ve pitched each perfectly to keep you on your feet from daybreak to lights out.
What materials do you use?
We’ve sources sumptuous velvets, soft suedes, immaculate calf hair and snake embossed leather from the best in the business to craft each shoe. Inspired by exquisite jewellery, two styles also feature an ultra desirable semi precious yellow jasper stone on a brass casing. Please note this is a semi-precious stone so markings on individual shoes can differ.
Why design and make shoes in Italy?
Italy is the heart of the shoe industry. When you work with an Italian factory you are benefiting from decades worth of artisanal knowledge. Factories are passed down through generations where every member of the family has grown up in and around the factory, living and breathing shoes. These are the true artisans, the experts. The factory we have sourced is third generation and is run by Mario and his family. Each shoe lovingly worked on at every stage, there is no room for error and each piece is given absolute care and consideration. Each shoe has been worked on by a highly skilled craftsman at every stage of their development – from sketch to final product. We have chosen exquisite fabrics and finishes, sourcing sumptuous velvets, soft suedes, immaculate calf hair and snake embossed leather from the best in the business.
What inspires the shoe collection?
We’ve worked extensively with a Italian based shoe designer to curate this collection for The Fold. We’ve considered where the wearer might go, how she wants to feel, her posture, how she wants to walk and enter a room. It’s also about special details, something unique and timeless that also feels new and exciting. We want you to treasure this shoe – and enjoy wearing it. The same sense of joy we want you to feel when you puts on a piece of The Fold should apply to the shoes. Much like our clothing and our store, we wanted each piece to feel unique and carefully curated. Designed to work seamlessly with the Fold’s collection, we have also tried to ensure they will work with everything else in your wardrobe.
