Size guide


Vernis Rife patent leather cleaner in black has been formulated by Saphir specifically to maintain all black patent leather items including footwear and handbags.

This liquid formulation cleans, recolours and shines your black patent leather while protecting against cracking over time. Gentle enough to use for regular maintenance, this specialised patent leather cleaner is also capable of correcting more permanent scuffs and scratches.

Directions: Using a soft, clean cotton cloth, remove all residual dust and dirt from your patent leather item. Shake the Vernis Rife bottle well and apply with a chamois or soft cotton cloth to the patent leather. Allow the cleaned area to dry for three minutes before buffing with a dry, soft cloth.

Wear them like only you can.

A Unique Expression.

We are full or charm, spirit and surprise, we seek to create the unique.

Made by hand and in very limited quantities, habbot shoes are something special, you wouldn't find anywhere else.

Move away from the mass produced and stand for who you are, whatever you choose to be.

Made by proud hands.

A Crafted Quality.

Each habbot shoe is designed by our founder Annie Abbott in Melbourne, Australia and manufactured in a small family run factory in Sant’Elpidio a Mare, in the Marche region of North Eastern Italy.

When all 15 craftspeople are working together on a different ‘making stage’ of the one shoe there’s a strong sense of comradery, pride and respect for their combined skill and joint effort that ensures the end result is perfectly executed down to the smallest detail, with an underlying quality that lasts well beyond the shop floor.

Demands to be seen

Made to be worn.

Using only the finest materials and time-honoured techniques, our shoes combine style with comfort to provide a better fit you’re happy to wear all day long.
