These Boots Were Made For…You

Poppy BarleyWhat It Is: A very cool concept based right here in Canada – in Edmonton, in fact. Poppy Barley is a bespoke custom footwear designer that ethnically crafts each and every pair of their flats, ankle, and knee-high boots to fit your foot, ankle, and calf like a glove. The process is simple. First, you measure out all of the aforementioned dimensions. Then, you choose the style you’re interested in – virtually every design Poppy Barley offers is available in a range of shades, from classic midnight blacks and chocolate browns to more eye-catching ruby red leather and and glittering gold sparkles. If you live in Edmonton, you can also visit the Poppy Barley showroom to get custom fitted in person. From there, it takes about 4-8 weeks for your custom made beauties (with a transparent manufacturing process) to appear on your doorstep. Wear ’em, love ’em, live in ’em – you’ll never find a better pair of custom-fitting footwear, I promise you.

Who It’s For: Your sister with the oh-so-skinny calves, so she can finally have a pair of properly fitting boots. Your fashion-obsessed daughter, so she can delight in picking out a pair of perfect, grown-up flats for her sweet sixteen. Your shoe-addicted wife, because the only thing better than a beautiful shoe is a beautifully fitted shoe.

What It Costs: The flats start at about $200, while the boots climb up to the $500 range. It might sound a tad pricy, but that’s about what you’d pay for a good quality, not custom-fitted pair in stores. You can also get one of Poppy Barley’s cute gift card kits, which come equipped with all the measuring tools you’ll need to master that fit.

Where It’s At: Poppy Barley is only sold online, or through their showroom in Edmonton.
