EOS is a family-owned Australian footwear brand, based in Melbourne.

Footwear for Every Woman

EOS crafts thoughtfully designed footwear for women who seek style without compromising comfort and quality.

In a world that champions fast-fashion and conformity, we honor integrity. Our shoes are made from pure aniline leathers, each with unique natural variation. Each EOS shoe is crafted to be as distinctive in appearance, personality, and texture as you are, with meticulous hand finishing.

Our Philosophy

The essence of our brand is the celebration of individuality – the EOS woman can’t be defined. She can be who she wants to be. Just as every piece we make is finished to be one of-a-kind, our tagline is an endorsement for being true to you. We’re not about a look but a feeling – the feeling of confidence and comfort that comes from being yourself.

Our brand values individuality – the EOS woman is unclassifiable. Our pieces are one of-a-kind, echoing our value of confidence from being your true self. Emphasizing self-assurance and ease over appearance.

Our History

That’s 100-year long journey of leather-working tradition; a century immersed in shoemaking, componentry, studying the shape and characteristics of a woman’s foot, of trends, of leathers and aesthetics, of striving for that moment when form and function meet perfect fit.

Premier Shoe Component

It began with Doug Midgley in the early 1900s – a New Zealand-born bootmaker and eventual General Manager of Australasia’s premier Shoe Component & Last factory in Melbourne.

From USA to Melbourne

Doug’s passion paved the way for a family tradition with son Noel becoming a successful shoe machinery designer/inventor in his own right. He started his own manufacturing business in Boston, USA and later in Melbourne in the 1960s.

EOS - Est. 1984

Noel’s son David drove the legacy forward; training in Italy, then designing and developing shoes in Italy and Germany before returning to Melbourne in the 80s to open his own shoe factory. In 1984 EOS was born.

A Family Affair

David works alongside son Oliver, the fourth generation of Midgley shoemakers, in our Port Melbourne Headquarter.


Today, David and Oliver work collaboratively with their team of designers, developers, componentry experts and artisan craftsmen in a creative process that season by season typically takes nine months. For the Midgleys and their tight-knit team, shoemaking is a calling that’s truly a labour of love.


At EOS we bring quality leather and accomplished shoemakers into deliberate synergy. Read the story behind our leather about the expertise and craftsmanship.
