WHERE DID CHAOS & HARMONY’S NAME COME FROM?
We wanted a name that would inspire us creatively but also describe our aesthetic. Chaos & Harmony reflects our love of textures to create depth – it brings about a curious contradiction. It also subtly sums up a woman’s world.
WHERE ARE YOUR SHOES MADE?
We design all of our shoes here in New Zealand and travel to China where our factories are based in Dongguan. We’ve spent years building a great relationship with our team there. The skilled craftsmanship allows us to create small runs of exclusive, hand-lasted product, while still paying attention to details. We visit every 12 weeks and are in daily contact with our artisans in China. Our factory abides by ethical manufacturing standards.
WHAT MATERIALS DO YOU USE TO CREATE YOUR SHOES?
Most of our leathers and materials come from tanneries based in Guangzhou. We travel to the markets there to find unique prints, textures, leathers and suedes. All of our shoes are genuine leather. We use a latex memory foam on the footbed for best comfort, as well as a super-soft leather lining. In the instance that we use textiles, fabric, plastics, nylons, neoprene or synthetics of any kind, it is noted on the individual model.
HOW IS THE FIT ON YOUR SHOES?
While we try to make all of our shoes to general New Zealand and Australian sizes, some styles, shapes and models fit differently due to sizing, scale, shape or pitch. We do our best to accurately describe the fit of Chaos & Harmony shoes and recommend measuring your foot and comparing it to the fit notes of each style.
HOW DO I LOOK AFTER MY SHOES? Leather is a natural quality product. Variances in colour, shade and natural markings can occur. Upon wearing, crinkles can appear. This is a natural part of leather wear. Clean your shoes with a soft cotton cloth before polishing or applying any shoe protector. This will ensure you remove dirt from the material, instead of rubbing it in. Apply polish evenly and once dry, buff until shiny. Where possible, use a natural product as it absorbs better. We recommend a natural bee’s wax. Metal trims should be wiped clean with a dry cloth. Metal can discolour when exposed to a water. Preserve or waterproof - especially suede. Beware of denim rubbing on light-coloured shoes. Heels will last longer if you avoid hooking them over things like barstools, avoid uneven or rough surfaces and avoid driving in them. Heel tips will need to be replaced with wear. We want you to enjoy your shoes - if you have any queries on the wear or how to care for your shoes please email us - firstname.lastname@example.org
