To our loyal customers,
I grew up on the smell of leather with childhood memories of family holidays spent visiting shoe factories and learning about the art of making shoes the traditional way.
Thirty years later, my heart still races when I visit shoe factories. From the person who cuts the leather, to the hands that make the final inspection, our shoemakers put their heart and soul into every pair produced. They are masters at their craft having learned their trade from the generations that came before them, similar to me, thanks to my father Peter Sheppard. Sadly there are very few of these factories left having been squeezed out of the market by the mass producers.
But fortunately for you, and us, we still know where to find them.
On this note, I am pleased to launch our Spring/Summer collection. This is a breathtaking range that I am confident you will appreciate.
At Peter Sheppard Footwear we celebrate women and their achievements. We have been honoured to participate in various charities run by women for women, and this will continue to be our strong commitment going forward. This season we are launching our new look magazine with an exclusive interview with one of Australia’s most iconic women who also happens to be a loyal Peter Sheppard customer, Dame Quentin Bryce. We are honoured to be able to share with you some of her pearls of wisdom for the modern-day woman.
Finally, I wish to thank you for choosing us as your partner in your shoe selection. Discerning women expect a range of quality brands and I am committed to the same outstanding service and style that my father has delivered for 44 years. I look forward to seeing you all on the shoe floor and welcome your feedback so that we remain steadfast in meeting the needs of all women.
