Meet the owner

Sisters Justine and Kendall Barber, Edmonton-based owners and creators of Poppy Barley, the label they started together, very much stand by their creed: 'Custom Footwear. Ethically Made.' Neither sibling had a background in footwear, but when Justine returned from a trip to Bali in 2012 with a made-to-measure pair of boots she adored, all that changed. She told Kendall that “this is how we should be buying footwear,” whereby a perfect fit was possible when multiple measurements were taken.

“From there, we set out to find partners to start up our own business,” says Kendall. “We found partners in Leon, Mexico, who have the expertise and have been in custom footwear for 12 years.” Needless to say, that’s where Poppy Barley’s factory is located, and the company believes in transparency and responsibility when it comes to how, where and who is making the products. “We share a lot of behind-the-scenes information on our website, regarding the collaboration side of things with our team and our customers,” says Kendall. “We believe you should not have to settle to get footwear to fit right."

Edmonton shops with clothes for ladies with long legs

Edmonton shops with clothes for ladies with long legs

Edmonton’s own custom boot success story makes tall boots for tall women, because it understands that not a single foot nor calf is made the same (its community manager knows what it’s like being tall and looking for boots). Poppy Barley uses several measurements to ensure your custom boots fit you like a … well, custom boot. Sure, you’ll pay a bit more, but you’ll never have boots last you longer than these ones will.

Edmonton shops with perfect gifts for fashionistas

Women across Canada are going nuts for this Edmonton custom shoe company, with pop-ups in Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto. The company, which focuses on creating made-to-measure, ethical footwear, has recently expanded their line to include a few accessories, such as beautiful wristlets. While a pair of Foxhunt boots may be a bit pricey for a gift ($498), their leather wristlets or an upcycled leather tassel necklace make a glamorous, reasonably priced gift. When in doubt, they do sell gift cards, as well.
