Never before has a woman’s role been so multi-faceted and complex, making the combination of style, comfort, and versatility in her wardrobe all the more important.

At Maylis, we create classic, versatile shoes that carry women through their days—from work, to the home, and everywhere in between—as well as through different seasons of life. Our styles complete workwear outfits, make casual, at-home outfits feel polished and intentional, and are always effortless to step into and balance in.


Based in and inspired by the South, we design each Maylis shoe in North Carolina, infusing timeless silhouettes with elegant details, welcome comfort features, and slip-on functionality. Those designs are brought to life in multi-generational factories in the Le Marche region of Italy, an area world-renowned for its luxury shoe manufacturing.

Whether you collect your go-to style in every color or curate your own selection of favorites, you can walk confidently in Maylis, knowing that each shoe is ethically made and built to last in your wardrobe for years to come, no matter what changes those years may bring.

Step into your day with style and confidence.


The inspiration for Maylis came from my early years of motherhood. From work to my family, so many facets of my life seemed to change faster than I could keep up with. I was constantly searching for wardrobe staples that would carry me effortlessly through each season, without needing to be set aside for months, or even years, at a time.

As women, we are wives and mothers, daughters and sisters, businesswomen and creatives, friends and neighbors. We juggle birthdays and board meetings, doctor’s appointments and date nights. We love deeply and we pour our hearts into others. We know that a single moment can hold both stress and sweetness, chaos and calm.

My hope is that in the midst of it all, Maylis inspires you to celebrate and appreciate the beauty in every day. For me, that starts with slipping into my favorite shoes—the ones that make the perfect finishing touch to any outfit, whether I’m dressed for work, play, or all of the above.

(After all, it’s usually all of the above.)

Thank you for being part of the Maylis family. You are so welcome here!
