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.
The Harrington has a short almond shaped toe on a 90mm heel. Fits snug. A long foot could go half a size up. This last was based on an old shoe found in a junk shop in Montmartre Paris in 2010. This little slip of a d'Orsay style shoe was given a new injection of life and has become the main high heel in most Zoe Lee collections.
Humberside fits very generously in the width and is long as well. We have produced mainly boots/ ankle boots on this last allowing for a good sock to be worn if necessary. We have also shearling lined some of the styles made on this last. This last can accommodate a bunion but also is beautifully elegant on a slender foot...This is our allrounder fits all construction.....
Inspired by a bright red court shoe found in the Marche de Puces Clignancourt, Paris in 2013....The Indian Grove is a narrow almond on a 100mm heel height. This is an extremely elegant shape which haven't used enough.... More to come on this style in the near future.......
The King Henry has been with us since the beginning. The original shape from this came from an old Italian hand made shoe that was found in a Salvation Army store in Vancouver back in 2004. Zoe loved the silhouette of the simple black pump that she re developed it with an Italian last maker when she launched the label in 2012. This last has been used in every collection since the beginning and has been tweaked and perfected over the years.....The fit is exact with a bit extra on the length. Comes with a 10mm platform for a little lift....25 mm heel.
The Bisney was first developed on a higher heel (The Albany) but was such a staple to the Zoe Lee collections we added a 50mm heel height version in 2016. This last fits exactly on the width and has a gentle almond shaped toe.
The Albany was first developed when Zoe was living Barcelona in 2007. The shape worked then as it does now. Its been tweaked and perfected over the past 12 years. It is our classic signature silhouette. It fits exactly on the width and has a gentle almond toe shape. 75mm heel height.
The Addison was developed as a new shape at the launch of Zoe Lee in 2012. This silhouette epitomises the Zoe Lee women. Strong, intelligent, elegant and comfortable. This shape is masculin and modern. Narrow and long with an 18mm heel height we often use this style on our foldable soft styles.
