The style of vintage heels in the comfort of flat shoes
We love the elegance of vintage heels but we recognise they can be uncomfortable and unsuitable for everyday wear, particularly for the busy modern woman constantly on her feet from morning til night.
Our mission is to instil the beauty of vintage designs normally reserved for heels into comfortable flat footwear with support that lasts all day, every day. Charlie Stone shoes add an elegant and whimsical touch to any modern or vintage outfit without compromising on comfort.
How do we do this?
- Custom supportive insole with extra cushioning
- Hidden wedge and inner heel elevation
- Soft genuine leather
- Flexible and durable bottom soles
- Comfortably positioned low ankle straps
How Charlie Stone was born
Started by Sydney local Samantha Szetu in 2014 and originally created to accommodate the physical strain of dance on the feet and knees, the Charlie Stone concept was born when Samantha struggled to find flat shoes that were stylish and comfortable enough to wear all day. Choices were between pretty designs with cardboard flat soles or orthopaedic-style comfort with equally orthopaedic-style designs. After a fruitless search, she decided to take matters into her own hands and design her perfect shoe.
As for the name, Charlie Stone was created accidentally when Samantha heard her husband say 'charlie stone' when pronouncing 'charleston' in his heavy italian accent!
