Mary Alice Malone is the founder and Creative Director of Malone Souliers, a luxury footwear company launched in 2014. The label began creating shoes for women, later expanding to encompass men’s footwear in 2019. Taking a creative and unconventional approach to design, Malone Souliers has been highly sought after for their elegant yet unique pieces.
Each design is crafted in Italy before being hand-finished by highly skilled artisans. Quality is integral to Malone Souliers, meaning that every detail is executed exceptionally. The label takes a zero-waste approach to design, continuously looking at ethical improvements for the company and ways to decrease environmental impacts. With these principles in mind throughout the whole process, Malone Souliers produces footwear for both men and women, from flats and heels to boots and loafers. A worldwide made-to-measure service is also offered by the brand, available upon request through the Malone Souliers website.
Signature to Malone Souliers is the brand’s ‘Maureen’ style, which launched in 2015 and proved an instant hit. The unexpected silhouette of the shoe is both striking and timeless, using considered curved lines and double-strap details. This design has a high-fashion appeal and is available in both flats and heels, in varying colours and materials.
In wider collections, sculptural shapes are seen throughout, featuring vivid colour palettes and luxurious finishes. Understated designs such as delicate heeled sandals and essential leather sliders are met with more bold styles such as lace Maureen heels and croc-print knee-highs. Whether looking for refined styles of exceptional quality or something to add drama to an outfit, Malone Souliers is the go-to for both daily styles and occasionwear shoes.
Malone Souliers is available online from various stockists, including Harvey Nichols, My Theresa and Farfetch. Their designs are accessible from their own online store also.
