All our lasts have been designed by Zoe in a number of factories throughout Italy. Each last has been developed and perfected over many years. These lasts have become a part of the permanent collection.

We will be happy to advise you as much as possible before a purchase. Please write to writing "Fit Advice" in the subject line and Lancelot shall get back to you as soon as possible.

Some of the lasts are described as longer or shorter etc. but please bear in mind that the standard Italian measurements used in last making fit within these descriptions and that the reason for the difference is mostly for look and comfort. The style designed on each of these lasts fit a little differently according variants such as where stitching sits on the shoe, what kind of leathers/materials are used etc but generally the fit will vary less on styles made on the same lasts. If a style seems to fit well then other styles on that last are likely to as well. All stitch work on the shoes is in nylon thread so as not to give too much nor erode over time. Please note that due to the strength of the nylon thread, shoes with stitching around the toe area will give less then styles that have less stitch work in this area. It is best that an evening or delicate shoe does not too snug to the foot as you do not want to destroy the silhouette of the shoe. The boots made from harder wearing leatherswill keep their silhouettes better. Wherever possible Zoe avoids extra seams (unless part of the design) so that the chosen leathers can take on the natural shape of the wearers foot without the constraints of stitch work. We welcome any feedback you may have regarding how to improve our constructions.
