Aeyde is the fashion girl favourite that puts quality and design first. That means stylish leather pieces with a directional flare – think a Western-inspired heel, or a snakeskin-print finish. Founded in 2015, the brand is based in Berlin, but each design is made in a family-run factory in the Marche region of Italy, finished with a hand-sewn stitch as a mark of quality. They may not be cheap (a pair of boots will set you back around £250) but compared to stratospheric designer shoe prices, they stand out as a more affordable option, especially when you consider their astute craftmanship and timeless-meets-cool appeal. Here are 21 of our favourites – find them on NET-A-PORTER and their own site.
