Memery is a shoe brand that produces vintage-style shoes and knitwear inspired by the Edwardian era, the 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s, in contemporary sizes and with great comfort. Original vintage shoes are often worn out, narrow, and uncomfortable.

Memery shoes have the same elegant designs and details as original vintage shoes (very important to me). Still, at the same time, they are due to the soft soles and breathable materials very comfortable. In addition, memery has a wide range of sizes to suit everyone. - So, for you who love vintage shoes, memery is an excellent choice. The shoes are also a good choice if you are looking for feminine, classic, plain shoes. The shoes are great for all fashions, styles, everyday wear, weddings and party dresses.

Feel free to ask any questions to me.

Great Shoes

I have bought several pair of this type of shoe over the years from Memery and have yet to be disappointed. They may be a little more expensive than you would pay on the high street but the quality of the shoe ensures you will get years of wear from them. They are so comfortable and look great. The size of the shoe fits me perfectly so not much worry about the sizes being wrong and having to send back. Will definitely buy again and again.

Hi Tina

Thank you for you lovely review, we're very glad to heat that our shoes live up to your expectations. Our shoes are all made with the intention of lasting many many years with the right care.


Beautifully crafted pretty shoes but....

I am stilling in the process of having to stretch the leather as they rub under my ankle and across the top of and each side my foot near my toes.
The one really difficult aspect of these Mary Janes is trying to get the little button through the button holes!! I am also trying to stretch and soften that and the strap as well. So to date I have not been able to wear these shoes out. I am persevering though, but to be honest if I had tried these on in a shop I probably would not have bought them.

Dear Sioux2

Thank you for your feedback on our Ruby shoe. We're glad to hear that you find them beautifully crafted. We are sorry to hear about the inconvenience you are experiencing with the button on the strap. We constantly develop our shoes and we will take your feedback into consideration for future designs. Our shoes are all made from leather, which means that in time it will expand a bit and take shape after your feet. Sometimes they can take a bit to break in, and in time your shoes will hopefully fit your feet perfectly.


Comfortable and Pretty

Really pleased with these shoes. Very comfortable. I have a wider toe box, but they fit well and the tapered toe looks very pretty.

Lovely Shoes, Strap a Little Too Tall

Much like my first pair of Memery shoes, these are lovely and well made in person! They came with extra buttons and are clearly made to last. I usually wear a US size 8.5, so I sized up to a 9 like with my first pair of Memery shoes (the Betty 1930s boots with the cute little collar). I was happy with the shoe sizing itself, it seemed to fit comfortably as a Mary Jane style shoe should where it's not too tight in the toes or heels and there's a small gap so your feet aren't cramped, so the size 9 seemed just right and any smaller I am quite sure would have been too small, especially when wearing with socks.

To my surprise, as I like to think I have pretty normally proportioned feet, the strap was too loose with seemingly no way to adjust it as is! There was maybe half an inch of a gap between the top of my foot and the strap. However, I decided to keep them and solved the minor issue by sewing up the elastic and sewing the button to the base of the elastic near where it meets the leather of the shoe. That seemed to solve my problem and now the strap still has a little give because of keeping the elastic and just adjusting the button down further. They seem to fit as intended now!

I still recommend these, just keep in mind you might need to find a way to adjust them more specifically to your foot shape since it's a button and elastic combination and not an adjustable buckle or laces. I will still happily buy more shoes from here, though! These are very adorable and a classic look in person, I just had to find a way to make them work and I'm glad I did!

Beautiful shoes

The shoes are beautifully made & are exactly as they appeared on the website. They were speedily dispatched & well packaged. I have wider than average feet & I was expecting the fit to be a bit snug. This was easily solved using a shoe stretcher (which I often use for new shoes).
I was surprised that I had to pay almost £50 to the Royal Mail before the shoes could be delivered. This covered unpaid VAT & also Duty charged by HM Customs & Excise. Made the purchase price rather high & will influence my decisions on future purchases.

Lovely shoes

Lovely shoes but they are quite narrow, recommend sizing up if you are used to a more barefoot shoe

Thank you for the review - I would not say Ruby is narrow more regular. But if you have wide feet you can size up.

1920s Mary Jane Shoe

My shoes are lovely. They're so soft and comfortable. They're for a wedding in March so I haven't worn them outside yet. I'm sure they'll be lovely. The service was very good. The one criticism I'd make is the extra Customs Fee I had to pay which did make them very expensive. That's not the sellers fault but it came as a bit of a shock. I don't remember seeing anything on the website about this but maybe I didn't check, so my fault. For that reason I've said 4 stars. I would recommend the product though.

I love the shoes!!!

I love the shoes, it is pretty hard to find shoes that fit my feet, as they are pretty narrow, but these shoes fit perfectly and are really comfortable.
