Our Little Story

At ELOISE and HENRY headquarters we firmly believe that the world needs better school shoes!

The idea for the ELOISE and HENRY collection was born when buying my daughter her very first pair of school shoes. Excitement quickly turned to dismay as we viewed warily the ugly lumps of poorly crafted leather on display. We decided to take matters into our own hands.

Over the next few months, we worked with McKinlays, fifth generation master shoemakers in New Zealand to craft the perfectly perfect shoe. Our school shoes hark back to a time when school shoes were made with strong dyed-through leather, which promised parents value for money.

Uncompromising in quality, we hope you'll love the ELOISE school shoe as much as we do.
