My Favorite Boots

"I have fairly wide feet and these are the most comfortable heeled boots I have ever worn. The snakeskin pattern I wasn’t too sure about at first, but I wear these every chance I can. They are so well made and worth the investment!"
-Anonymous (Verified Buyer)

Literally obsessed

"This was a big splurge for me at the price point but I have zero regrets. They’re so comfortable, stylish, and most importantly I can feel the high quality of the leather and construction. The downside is now I have to spend more money on new skirts to pair with these because I want to wear them all the time!!"

-Shelley H. (Verified Buyer)

Dream Boots

"The Joan high boots are what’s been missing from my wardrobe. They are so comfortable and versatile, not only a great winter boot - they are fabulous all year round! If you’re thinking about taking the plunge do it, you will not regret this purchase."

-Pip. C (Verified Buyer)

Yeah they're worth it

"These boots are perfect. They are so well made and comfortable as ****. I had a wider foot and they aren’t snug on me. You can wear them all day without any aches or pains. I will have these for life!"

FIT MODEL REVIEW
"I really understand why this is their bestseller."

We asked professional footwear fit model Ilima Thompson to give us her unbridled thoughts on Joan Ankle Boot. Watch the video to see what she has to say.

Why Love Labucq

SMALL RUNS

Our shoes are made in a family-run factory outside of Florence, Italy. You can feel good about where they come from.

FULL GRAIN LEATHERS

We use naturally tanned leathers for the upper that form to the shape of your foot with wear. They're flexible and luxe.

TIMELESS STYLE

We design styles in classic materials that can be
worn season after season. These are the shoes you'll want to pass down to your children.

FIT FIRST

We work with an experienced Italian fit model and last makers who have been building consistent fit for generations.

Know what makes our shoes great

01

Details & Materials

We use only the finest Italian-made leathers, with a focus on natural tanning. This allows the leather to take the shape of the foot beautifully with wear.

02

Consistent Sizing

Our team invests countless time and energy into finding the best possible fit. Not only are shoes beautiful, but they also feel great. We follow standard medium width grading on all of our shoes. Full size guide here.

03

Care Instructions

To clean our leather shoes, gently wipe with a soft, damp, neutral-colored cloth. Proper care, including occasional visits to a local cobbler, will help them to last for many years to come.

04

Shipping & Returns

We ship orders within 24 hours and offer expedited shipping at checkout. Enjoy free size exchanges and store credit returns on all orders.

"Best boots ever!"

Take it from one of the hundreds of customers who already own Joan...

  • After spending what it seemed like FOREVER to find a pair of chic, well-made, everyday boots that both dress up a simple outfit and transition to a night out - I finally found the Joan boots, and I absolutely LOVE them. Walking on the 2" block heel is easy on the ankles and I can wear them all day in the city. They also work well when traveling through security since they are easy to take off (there are elastic loops on the inside of the boots that help with that).

    Marta B. (Verified Buyer)

    New York, NY

  • Best boots ever! These are my favorite boots I’ve ever purchased! They are timeless and make every outfit so chic. I took them on a weekend trip the day they arrived and they fit comfortably the whole time. The boots fit true to size, the leather is super soft, and they are really easy to walk around the city in. I cannot recommend them enough!

    Sonja M.  (Verified Buyer)

  • Favorite Boots! Very comfortable to walk around the city, go to music shows, a night out, catch a train. I always get compliments on them. Easy to put on and take them off.

    Rona (Verified Buyer)

    Chicago, IL

  • I was decided to give the Joan High a try after reading that the calf circumference accommodates a wider size. Mine is 15" and this boot fits like a dream and is very comfortable. No zippers, no stretchy fabric mix, just good old pull on leather. Love it.

    Alexa D.  (Verified Buyer)

    USA

  • I absolutely love these boots. They manage to capture a refined look but edgy as well. They are beyond comfortable. I am a healthcare worker spending long hours in the hospital, and my feet feel great after a long day seeing patients. Best purchase of the year.
