Tim and Fiona Slack (T&F Slack) are married to each other and to their love of creating shoes, considered ‘modern classics’ by industry standards. Their collection gives the classic ‘Gibson’ or ‘Derby’ shoe shape new life when unexpected colour combinations, stitching details and fabrications are blended together.
You can choose from the perforated Punch Derby in white leather with yellow peaking beneath, or have a custom made pair to order in their Notting Hill Shop or use the simple ‘build your own shoe’ system they’ve created within Selfridges and Liberty.
Dedicated to keeping manufacturing local, they make around 150 shoes per month in their factory where old-fashioned machinery is salvaged and customised to create their ‘modern classic’ shoes. With so much repetition in the world of shoes, it’s so refreshing to see a unique and bespoke solution that really does draw the eye downwards! – Kate Vandermeer
