French Sole are a wonderful example of how being an innovator has nothing to do with being first - and everything to do with doing something the best. The classic ballet flat is a style whose history stretches back decades, and has spent a good portion of its life being written off as simply too commonplace to ever be elevated to the status of high fashion.

That all changed with Jane Winkworth. The woman who now bears the eponym of “The Queen of Ballet Flats” began creating artisan flats that went far beyond the beck and call of the usual fair in 1968. After a period of testing out alternative vocations such as porcelain painter (ensuring her artistic flame was never extinguished), Winkworth rekindled her original love after meeting a French shoe salesman named Philipe Cassalis.

Cassalis’s company had been making ballet flats since the 1950s, so he and Winkworth were a perfect match. With his encouragement, she began the business she was calling French Sole out of her home, and stayed true to her original inspiration by resolving to focus on the style that had sparked her interest in footwear design years before, the ballet flat.

Featuring materials, patterns and colours rarely featured on the traditionally austere style, French Sole flats quickly earned a strong following. Now with over 25 years of experience, they have begun to branch out into new styles, but the ballet flat remains the cornerstone of their business.
