What payment methods do you accept?

How do I know which size to choose?
It all depends on which model you are looking at. Have a look at the product description on the website, where we often present sizing tips based on our experience in store.
For conversion between European and American sizing, consult our sizing guide.
Note: If you are having difficulty selecting a size, we suggest you drop by our boutique or write us at email@example.com describing your usual size and any pertinent considerations regarding your feet (narrow, wide, high arch, flat, corns/bunions, orthotics, etc.)
Do you offer shoes in half-point sizes?
No we do not. It is worth noting however, that certain models run a little larger or smaller than average, and customers almost always find something that fits them perfectly. Come try them on in store or write us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are in doubt!
Do your shoes accommodate a narrow\wide feet?
The majority of our products are made to accommodate all forms of feet. However, some models are better suited to certain types of feet than others. Be sure to have a look at the product's description on the website, and if you're still having doubts, write us at email@example.com
Are your shoes adapted for orthoses?
It all depends on the thickness and size of your orthoses. Select our flat shoes with round or almond toes and with removable insoles. At present, only the insoles of our sneaker collection are removable but we hope to add more models in the future.
Do your shoes stretch (enlarge) over time?
Each product evolves in a different manner and according to the particulars of your foot and usage. In general, our shoes tend to soften lightly as both the exterior and the lining are genuine leather. The takeaway? Never choose a shoe that is loose or large during your first fitting.
Don't hesitate to write us at firstname.lastname@example.org to know if the product you are considering has the tendency to loosen.
Company & Products
Are your products made in Canada?
All our products are conceived and designed at our Mile-End headquarters in Montreal, Québec.
The manufacturing takes place in different factories and workshops around the world, depending on the collection. One of these is right here in Montreal. Our manufacturing partners are selected for their standards of craftsmanship and employee working conditions. Our designer travels in person to every factory and develops the collections directly with the workers on site.
Visit our Factories page to learn more about where our products are made. The country of manufacture is always listed in our products' description.
Do you offer unisex products?
Yes! We are proud to have launched our first unisex collection, The Taipei Sneaker, on Spring/Summer 2019.
Why don't you make smaller and bigger sizes ?
A few people every year reach out to us to get smaller or bigger sizes. The reason why we can't produce sizes 5 or 12 for example is that the factories we work with don't have opened mold in these sizes. Opening a new mold is around 1000$ per size and as a small company we can't justify it for 1 or 2 pairs. To keep our shoes affordable we work with opened mold so that's why the sizes are limited.
Do you offer products in vegan leather?
We emphasize the use of natural and durable materials that offer comfort, quality, and long life to our products. At present this means high-grade, genuine leather.
In the spirit of continual improvement we are investigating alternative materials that can offer a vegan option without sacrificing the performance and life-cycle characteristics of genuine leather. For example, a synthetic shoe that must be replaced after a year of use is not more ecological in the long run. Moreover, most materials marketed as "vegan leather" are made from polyvinyl chloride or polyurethane, which are petroleum-based plastics, as well as chemical bonding agents, and these substances pose their own unique health and environmental risks.
However as new materials come to market, our designers keep an eye out for any exciting developments that can help us expand our product offerings!
Do you use animal fur?
Our Ethiopian collection of handbags are made in part from natural goat fur. These products are made by our most ethical factory in Addis Abeba, who recuperates the pelts from local free-range goat herds that are slaughtered once per year for their meat. It is a traditional no-waste process that also contributes to the local economy, and we are proud to be a part of it. Learn more about our Ethiopian Collection here.
Do you offer discounts or promotional sales?
Nope :) Our list prices are determined based on fair and transparent criteria, and are fixed for the life of the collection. We work without agents or distributors and all our processes are lean, like our prices. Learn more about our transparent prices.
That said, two times per year we hold sample sales featuring reduced prices on imperfect and demo items and end of collections. These sales take place exclusively at our Montréal warehouse and are not available online. Be the first to know about our sales and events: Sign up for our mailing list.

Maintenance and Warranty
Can I wear your products out of doors?
Our products are of fine quality, but also delicate and require particular attention in certain conditions to preserve their appearance. With the exception of our Rachel winter boot, our shoes are not factory waterproofed we recommend avoiding rain and snow whenever possible.
How should I maintain my Maguire shoes and handbags?
When properly cared for, natural leather and suede are long lasting durable materials. We suggest treating your Maguire products regularly with recommended leather conditioners. Remember to always test conditioning products in an inconspicuous place to avoid undesired discolouration.
When in doubt, a visit to the local cordswainer or cobbler is a worthwhile investment!
Do you guarantee your products?
All our products are handmade. Therefore it is possible that items exhibit small variations from one to another. However we are pleased to offer free repairs for any significant manufacturing defects found in our products. We favour repair as an environmental solution that reduces waste and supports local craftspeople. If you have any questions with regards to our product warranties, write us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that we are not responsible for damage or alteration of the product incurred during normal use, or as a result of inappropriate use, accident, or inadequate maintenance.
