Villet / Custom-made
A timeless style, hand made with care
Ballet pump shoe styles date back to the French Revolution and have maintained their popularity ever since. Simple, lightweight and compact enough to fit in your handbag, our classic Villet barefoot ballerinas are the perfect summer shoes. We make them from premium Italian leather, which moulds itself naturally to the shape of your foot. Villet is an all-leather ballet pump whose timeless style and careful handicraft will add that je ne sais quoi to every outfit. Click HERE for guidance on choosing the right size.

Our shoes are exceptional because we make them by hand, with the ultimate care.
We’re perfectionists. We got used to working to very strict quality criteria when making leather goods and we apply the same high quality standards when we make our range of comfortable shoes.
We make all our shoes entirely by hand, which means that each and every pair literally passes through our hands countless times. The individual care and attention the shoes receive in this hand-crafting process enables us to ensure their quality every single step of the way.
We have taken a conscious decision to use only the very best materials for our shoes. Our shoes are made entirely from leather, except for the soles and insole insulation. You will definitely notice the difference.
Removable double insole
Our shoes are made with double insoles. In the Villet model, the inner layer (next to your foot) is made of genuine leather and comfortably accommodates your foot. Leather also naturally wicks away sweat and softens your step. This is backed with a layer of rubber for increased comfort. Altogether, the insole is 3.5mm thick.
Give your feet more freedom with our comfortable shoes
Some people call them barefoot shoes. We call them comfortable shoes, because it’s really all about comfort. Our shoes adapt to your feet. They shelter them, while giving them enough room to move naturally.
Weight – every gram counts
Your feet will feel like there’s nothing on them. Jenon Leather’s Villet weigh just 139g (in size 41) which makes them some of the lightest ankle boots on the market. Studies have shown that with every additional 100g of shoe, your feet end up lifting a tonne more per day.
We have great respect for Czech craftsmanship and so we also source our laces from Czech manufacturer ODETKA. What’s special about them? The company has been making laces for more than 200 years. And they’re really good laces.
