Established in 1934, the Ravel footwear brand began when two entrepreneurs, Mr and Mrs Erwin Wise, opened shoe shops in London under the name: The Tower Boot Company. The pair quickly came renowned for offering made-to-measure formal evening shoes and later, fashionable styles which reflected the current trends of the time.
The move from formal to fashion was insightful, as demand for the brand’s women’s footwear continued to rise; resulting in a complete rebrand of the chain of 40 nationwide stores and its footwear ranges to become Ravel in 1965. The brand was a hit, especially with style icons of the day including the likes of Lulu and the most famous supermodel of the swinging sixties, Twiggy.
Today Ravel continues to offer women’s footwear that is right on trend, with a primary focus on delivering contemporary shoe designs for women who deserve to look and feel fabulous in their footwear. From ankle boots to flat sandals, the women’s footwear at Ravel offers modern styles whatever the season. What gives each style that additional ‘wow factor’ are the irresistible finishing touches, durable high-quality fabrics, on-trend prints, and fabulous colour ways that are utilised with each pair of shoes.
