Created by A Totem Für Elita

One of the most well known Greek myths was the story between Pluto (or in Greek, Hades) and Persephone (or in Roman mythology, Cora). Their romance started in an atypical way, when Hades/Pluto, the king of the underworld, on one rare occasion decided to go for a walk in the upper world, saw Persephone/Cora (the daughter of the goddess Demetra) and instantly fell in love. With the help of his brother Zeus, he made a plan and split the ground beneath Persephone’s foot while she was playing with her friends, kidnapped her and took her to the underworld! While Persephone felt unhappy and homesick at first, she progressively started to love the mysterious Pluto. Her feelings grew even more when Pluto, realizing how much she was missing her family, allowed her to split her time between both worlds. Before making this decision, Pluto fed Persephone pomegranates, a fruit which ‘tied’ her to him indefinitely - love passes through the stomach after all! If Pluto & Persephone lived in modern times, we could easily hear Pluto say: ”Persephone pick up the phone to hear your voice the echo of my rejoice”.

About the Nomia Heeled Boot

Description

A little lift for the every day, our first ever heeled ankle boot is here and she's well worth the wait! The Nomia features a flattering and comfortable 2 inch lift, a leg-elongating V-opening and our signature stud on the zipper pull. Made for days and nights, our ankle boot will quickly earn front-of-closet status.

Fit Notes

Our heeled boot fits true to size. If you find yourself in between sizes or have a wide foot, we recommend sizing up. Even if it's snug at first, the soft leather will open up to your foot.

Materials

Uppers are made with vegetable tanned Italian leather.

Lining is 100% biodegradable, non-toxic and highly breathable Italian leather.

3mm cushioned insole wrapped in leather lining, and a durable rubber sole.

Take Care!

We want you to treasure your leather boots for years and years to come. While we’ve made every effort to build the shoes to last with materials that age beautifully, there are also steps you can take to protect and prolong the life of your leather boots. First things first, use an all natural leather cream or spray to protect your boots from water and other elements!

Eco-Conscious Materials

When we decided to expand our sandals collection to include closed-toe shoes, we wanted our leather lining to be as ethical as our vegetable-tanned leather vachetta uppers. So we searched far and wide and found an incredible lining tannery in Italy. 

The leathers are completely biodegradable, non-toxic, breathable with a guaranteed low environmental impact and a marked reduction in water waste during production.
