Bria by Relax are soft and comfortable red leather closed shoes.
Elastic strapping across the midstep for an optimum fit. Side zipper for don/doff.
Soft padded leather innersole and nice and light weight.
How do they fit? Here is a description from Karen in our team. She tried them on just for you:
*You can listen to Karen's short Voice Recording, at the bottom of this page. Press play and listen while you look at the photos.*
"This shoe is called Bria and it's by Relax Shoes and they're an Italian company.
This is a flat, very flat, walking-style sort of shoe. The size you'll find with this one is fairly standard. You could just go your normal standard size with this. The width also is quite nice.
The insole on this one has a little bit of foam. I can feel a little bit of arch support there, which feels nice. It's not hard. It's quite soft.
Now the attraction with this one is, both shoes have zippers on the left-hand side, so there are no laces involved here.
So along with the zipper across the front down the instep, there's two swatches of black elastic.
I'm trying on the red pair. This has black elastic across the front so that gives a little bit of support when you walk, a little bit of give and a bit of support. But it's the zippers that let you in and out of this one.
Again, it's a fully flat shoe on a rubber unit sole, leather upper. A really fun, bright, comfortable, lightweight walking shoe." Karen

Great when you are unsure about the fit of a style.
A little time spent loving your shoes will mean they will last longer and look better, giving you better wear out of every purchase.
* It is a great idea to store your shoes in their boxes and use the tissue (packaging) that comes with them to re-wrap them. We call this "putting the baby to bed" and it keeps them happy! And protected. You'll protect them from getting marked in your cupboard, getting dusty and getting squashed out of shape. Some shoes and hand bags come with soft, cloth storage bags and they are very useful for protecting stored items.
* We also suggest that you use a product called Water & Stain which is a waterproofer spray. This can be used on all smooth leathers, suede, nubuck and satin/canvas/fabrics. It helps to repel water, dirt, grease and grime. It also protects against moisture. It should be applied to a clean item by holding the Waterproofer about 20cm away from the shoe and giving the whole shoe a light spray. Leave the item to dry and then repeat the process. This product will allow the leather to breathe and not discolour and is great for colour fasting bright colours.
* Leather conditioner is another great product that will significantly prolong the life of your leather shoes and bags. This product cleans and conditions your leather as you would your hands. To obtain the best results, we suggest using it in conjunction with the waterproofer, on a regular basis.
