French Sole first began life in the 1960’s when shoe designer Jane Winkworth was a teenager and holidaying in the South of France. As a life-long devotee of everything “ballet” Jane adored wearing ballet flats. After stumbling upon a tiny store in St Tropez which sold a range of brightly coloured ballet flats, she bought several pairs. She decided there and then that one day she would design and sell her own range of ballet flats for everyday wear - and so the story begins.
Today, the original French Sole by Jane Winkworth is regarded by all the global fashion press and by fashionistas around the world as the absolute originator of ballet flats as a fashion classic as a shoe closet staple and as the “Real Deal” when it comes to beautiful, unique and exquisite ballet flats. Today, all Jane’s immediate family are now many years into working for and building up the business. It continues to grow more successful every year with Royal and celebrity customers still queuing up for every new collection that Jane produces after almost twenty five years of designing little ballet flats. A wonderful story of a unique concept idea that took roots and continues to grow through dedication, vision and hard work from a woman devoted to art and ballet.
