ParVous FAQs

ParVous Frequently Asked Questions…


Yes. We are Custom Shoemakers. At ParVous, you can choose from our designs, or design your own. You can select from dozens and dozens of color and material combinations, the most exotic leathers and all sorts of styling elements.

Let your imagination run wild, and we will bring your ideas beautifully to life for you.

We get it right most of the time, Cinderella, but if your shoes don't fit, we won't rest until they do. We will have them altered at our cost, or remake them, or if need be, refund you. Please read The ParVous Guarantee here.

Also, we found over time that the some ways of sizing shoes are more reliable than others.....please see our Size + Fitting for more information.

If you have any questions about The ParVous Guarantee, fitting or sizing - or if you have any special or unusual requirements - please contact us.

It takes us four to six weeks to make and deliver your shoes to you. Some things cant be rushed....

Yes, we do. All of the shoes on offer at ParVous can be made with a 3, 4 or 5 inch (7.5/10/12.5cm) heel. Each shoe allows you to specify the heel height you would like.

Remember, if you have any special requirements, or questions about a particular heel or height on a specific shoe, or would like to 'mix and match', there is a "Questions?" tab on every shoe. Just get in touch, and we'd love to help you with any special requirements.

Absolutely! ParVous is a custom shoe maker, and we can't possibly show every variation we can make. If you want this shoe, with a different toe and bigger heel and slingback, in another material/s - just get in touch! There is a "Questions?" tab on every shoe page.

We are Custom Shoemakers, and we can do nearly anything, so if you have a specific idea in mind, drop us a line.

ParVous makes shoes in French sizes, 36-42.

This means: EU: 36-42 USA: 5-11

Just order your shoes in the size you normally wear- standard EU is the best sizing guide, and we will convert to French sizing for you. If you are unsure about your sizing, or you have special requirements, put a comment on your order, and we will contact you to help you with sizing. More information about sizing here: Size + Fitting

By the way, ParVous shoes are made on our own Lasts (molds). This means the sizing will not vary. If a ParVous size 39 fits you perfectly- the next ParVous size 39 you buy will fit you perfectly as well.

We can do large and small, and we can usually do the unusual. Feel free to drop us a line at or on the "Questions?" tab on every shoe page if you have specific requirements. Unusual sizes and requests may take a little longer, and make involve an additional charge.

We will do our best to help.
