“The high heel is a ma­gi­cian,” says Malone Souliers cre­ative di­rec­tor Mary Alice Malone. “A beau­ti­ful heel will sculpt the foot and cre­ate a trans­for­ma­tive re­ac­tion through the en­tire body. They will af­fect pos­ture and the way you walk—but also the way you talk, the way you carry your head, your en­tire bear­ing.” And it is with this guiding be­lief that Malone, orig­i­nally from the US state of Penn­syl­va­nia and now based in Lon­don’s May­fair, de­signs each shoe. Af­ter train­ing at Cord­wain­ers at the Lon­don Col­lege of Fash­ion and de­vel­op­ing her skills fur­ther at a num­ber of renowned ate­liers, Malone launched her own la­bel in 2014 with busi­ness part­ner Roy Lu­wolt, who is now man­ag­ing di­rec­tor. In the two-and-a-half years since its de­but, Malone Souliers has joined the ranks at hal­lowed re­tail­ers like Bergdorf Good­man, Har­vey Ni­chols, Matches, Moda Operandi and Net-a-porter, to name a few, and been worn by celebri­ties such as Diane Kruger, Blake Lively, El­iz­a­beth Olsen and Poppy Delev­ingne. They’ve also just in­tro­duced a chil­dren’s footwear line, Min­is­malls.
