First launching in 2019, celebrity stylist Lana Wilkinson launched a new range of her high-end shoes around the time Covid-19  was shutting down the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival. It might seem an impossible hurdle to overcome. Not so for Lana. Her premium quality kicks have been selling out on-line. This is one of the new Australian designer shoe brands that will become a mainstay for years to come.

Australian Designer Shoe Brands - Hezzalux

Luxury cushion-lined high heels don’t get much more comfortable than Hezzalux. Designer Hether Horan spent years in the corporate world trying to find an answer to designer heels that looked good but were deadly painful to wear. Hezzalux shoes are high-heeled, well-crafted and super-padded, with patent pending.  While this Australian shoe designer brand is focused on comfort, Hezzalux’s designer looks speak for themselves. Part proceeds from sales go to children’s charities.
