Thelma is a luxury shoe brand, devoted to everyday versatility, artful Italian craftsmanship, and quietly eye-catching design. Thelma shoes may be practical, but never ordinary. Each pair of Thelmas is handmade by expert artisans dedicated to preserving inherited techniques as well as upholding the highest ethical and environmental standards.
Thelma was 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 contradictory virtues: serious and light, daring and understated. Sometimes she drinks green juice. Sometimes she eats spaghetti bolognese. 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 anything. 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.
