Harriet Wilde is a British independent footwear label, established in 2008 by the designer Ruth Shaw.
When she was looking for shoes for her own wedding she found the task of buying shoes from “the wedding world” quite daunting – and even depressing. Having always bought designer or unique and mainly vintage finds she was suddenly faced with the idea that she would have to compromise her style. Why can’t wedding shoes be beautiful and stylish? Ruth thinks they should be so she set about establishing a luxury contemporary brand of shoes, with a vintage feel that would not make any compromise on style.
