Thelma is devoted to everyday versatility, artful Italian craftsmanship, and quietly eye-catching design. Thelma shoes are practical, but never ordinary. Each pair is handmade by expert artisans dedicated to preserving inherited techniques as well as upholding the highest ethical and environmental standards.
Thelma is inspired by and created for the extraordinary everywoman. Preferring uncomplicated design, she is quietly aware of who she is and what she likes. She is a perfect mix of seemingly contradictory virtues: serious and light, daring and understated, sensible and expressive. She has a deep, unfailing sense of what works and she doesn't waste time trying things she knows will not. She is very much herself.
The original Thelma Loafer is our answer to the ideal everyday shoe: powerful and feminine, pulled-together yet comfortable, vibrant yet refined. It is a shoe to step out in. The woman in Thelmas is ready for what’s ahead. She doesn't create the illusion of confidence, she simply is.
THELMA was founded in 2016 by Amanda Greeley. Amanda currently lives and works in Charleston, SC.
