Established in 2013, Fairfax & Favor have quickly established themselves as a brand iconic of British luxury fashion, renowned for their handcrafted leather footwear for men and women, and now boasting a wide range of handbags and accessories to match. Versatile enough for both casual and formal outfits in country and town, there is a piece that will make every outfit, on every occasion.
The Fairfax & Favour Regina quickly became a quintessential boot, oozing sophistication and elegance, and it is from this staple that the collection grew. It is available in flat and heeled versions. Sporting fit accommodates a wider calf, while narrow fit is also available, and with elastic inserts, there is considerable adjustability in the calf width. Core colours such as tan, black and chocolate are timeless, while seasonal pieces add a pop of colour. With interchangeable tassels and lots of colours or prints to choose from, you can make these boots your own, reinventing every outfit. We especially love tan Reginas paired with a floral dress, printed playsuit or white jeans in the summer, or black heeled Reginas paired with black jeans for refined elegance. With over-the-knee boots, country boots, and shearling or sheepskin-lined shorter boots, Fairfax & Favor make a boot to suit every style, and you can be assured they are premium quality and handmade. Sandals and driving shoes are a popular choice in the summer months, adding instant chic to any outfit.
For men, there is a wide range of shoes, boots and driving shoes, as well as accessories like belts, bags, and wallets.
How do I stretch Fairfax & Favor boots?
These boots are designed to be fitted around the calf and ankle, and this fit is what helps to give them their elegant look. However, this can mean that they are a little too neat for those with a high instep or a wider calf. Generally, we recommend that if you can zip them up when trying them on, they will give enough with wear that they will be easier to zip up in time. If they are not snug at purchase, they are likely to end up sagging around the ankle and showing a gap between your leg and the boot once you have worn them in. There are all sorts of tips and tricks to wear them in if they are a little tight, including wrapping your foot and calf in a freezer bag before zipping the boots up, which is the method recommended by Fairfax & Favor themselves. If you are unsure which calf width to opt for, you may find our Size Guide useful. Remember there is an additional 5cm worth of stretch in the calf due to the elastic panels, and if you are between calf sizes, we would recommend sizing down. If you are between foot sizes, we recommend sizing up.
How do I clean Fairfax & Favor boots?
The answer to this depends on whether your boots are suede or leather. Smooth leather should be cleaned gently with plain water, left to dry, then conditioned with Fairfax & Favor Leather Cream. Rub the cream into the leather with a clean cloth in a circular motion ensuring there is no excess. This cream will help to keep the leather supple and water-resistant, ensuring longevity and a smart appearance, enhancing shine. Suede footwear should be protected with a suede protector before they are worn, which helps to repel stains and water. If you do get your suede boots or shoes dirty, leave them to dry completely, and then use a suede brush to brush the dried stain out. It is advised to keep your suede boots for dry days, as suede is not waterproof, even after treatment with the protector spray.
How should I store my Fairfax & Favor boots?
It is advised to store your boots with boot trees inside them to help retain their shape and prevent sagging around the ankle. Many customers choose to store their boots in their original box, and if doing so, we would recommend laying the tassels flat to prevent creasing to them.
Are Fairfax & Favor boots true to size?
The boots are generally true to size, but are designed to be neat-fitting. Many customers do size up in the foot size and stay true to size in the calf width. You may find our Fairfax & Favor Size Guide helpful. It is advisable to come and visit us for a boot fitting if possible.
