EVERYDAY LUXURY FOOTWEAR, BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED.
CHAPTER 2 combines an expertise in footwear with a love of contemporary design and craftsmanship to create the most beautiful shoes for women and children.
CHAPTER 2 celebrates traditional shoemaking by sourcing beautiful Italian leathers and natural materials to make investment pieces which are crafted mainly by hand. Due to the artisanal nature of the materials and the making process slight variations will occur but this is all part of the charm and one of the things we love. Most styles are created in small runs or limited editions.
Collections are produced by small, artisanal factories in Italy.
Made to Order and special limited edition styles are hand crafted by Tom in The Alchemists Footprint workshop in East Sussex, UK.
CHAPTER 2 is created by shoe designer and maker Fay & Tom Murphy. Fay is the designer and artistic visionary for the brand, and Tom is the shoe maker. Both have nearly 20 years experience in their field which has seen them working for luxury brands such as Dries Van Noten and Paul Smith, and crafting beautiful hand made shoes for bespoke clients, catwalk collections and teaching shoemaking around the world.
CHAPTER 2 began in the summer of 2013 after the birth of Fay & Tom's second son - the 2nd chapter of their family. The first women's collection launched October 2019.
