About

Our aim is to provide a man with a beautiful and comfortable pair of high heel shoes that will not only make him look amazing, it will bring positive attention, get heads turning and complement the wearers' lifestyle.

Cross Sword is the answer to men that have longed to wear heels but have only found shoes that have been designed for a feminine foot. At Cross Sword our first priority is the comfort of our designs, produced for the male fashionista. Cross Sword give the wearer the ability to feel proud, own the empowerment that so many people receive from wearing heels and look amazing while wearing them.

 

Our shoes have been delicately hand crafted by highly skilled and experienced technicians. Our technicians have ample experience of working with some of the high end brands that you see today. Their combined knowledge, craftsmanship and understanding of materials has led to the production of a unique and luxurious product. We are proud of the level of the care that is taken in the manufacture of each shoe. Our manufacturers attention to detail in every pair has led to what we consider to be one of the highest quality handmade shoes available.

Designs are drawn directly onto covers that are made from the last. Using these covers gives the designer a strong idea of the proportions, look and technical application of the design. The designs have been narrowed down to a selected few that you can currently see on our website.

We have invested in the moulds and tooling for the popular sizes but to move forward we need to produce moulds for our unique heels for all the different sizes. Support from Kickstarter will help us to complete the rest of the size range. We will then be able to add more colour ways and introduce our concepts for new designs to enable us to develop our brand further.

 

 

 

 

The Brian is available in polished black Italian leather or patent leather. With smooth flowing lines and minimal decoration the Brian is smart, clean and chic. It has been created to blend beautifully with formal wear such as a suit or dinner dress.

We have created a wingtip brogue styled shoe available in a range of colours that are versatile enough to use in a formal or relaxed environment. You can use the Jav as an everyday shoe or for that special occasion, it’s versatile enough to do both. The Jav currently comes in the classic mahogany brown and a bi-coloured green and white variant too.

Making the Antony involved thinking about what could look good in an every day situation but smart enough to still be appropriate for that night out. The Antony fits perfectly with a nice pair of jeans or chinos and veers towards a more casual look. We designed the Antony to be flexible enough to take a large range of colours but simple enough to be comfortable and stylish.

We have a range of rewards for our backers but three of the smaller rewards have been introduced to support our concept. Our cufflinks and handkerchief are a perfect accompaniment to our shoes. They add the finishing touch to that shirt or jacket and give the wearer that edge that others don't have. 

Our shoe trees have been specifically designed for our shoes. They fit perfectly into the Cross Sword shoe and help it keep its fantastic shape. The shoe tree will help your shoes to stay looking new and support the shape they originally came with. By adding an extra £65 to your pledge we will send you a pair of shoe trees that match to the sizing you selected.

Our shoes have been carefully designed in European sizes (41-45) in order to provide the perfect fit. At Cross Sword the comfort of our shoes is paramount. Hours of development early on have meant that every shoe conforms exactly to the sizing chart above. We are currently offering the size range 41 - 45 but want to offer more in the future. With enough support we aim to offer higher and lower sizes than the current that are available.

 

 

Risks and challenges

We work with a very experienced team and with experience comes an ability to solve potential problems that may arise. Our factory has a good knowledge and understanding of how to pull all of the different components together to produce the footwear that we do.

We understand that with the amalgamation of all of these components if there are supply issues this can cause delays.
We have taken steps to ensure that our supply chain is consistent and we are able to manufacture our products to deadlines set.

We understand that there is the risk of delay but should this be the case we will ensure that our backers will be the first to know how we are solving this problem.
