Born in a small Swedish fishing village to hardworking parents, Hjördis Gunborg Schymberg sang with her four sisters in cafes and movie theatres, creating a buzz about her lovely voice. When she was only 16, Hjördis had her own radio program, singing songs for children. After studying in Stockholm and Italy, Hjördis was one of the most popular singers at the Royal Swedish Opera. After traveling the world singing in the top Opera Houses, Hjördis returned to Stockholm and taught some of the greatest singers out of Sweden, turning her childhood home into a
non-profit foundation with classes and concerts for young and upcoming singers.
With soft dry leathers laser cut* in Fair Isle patterns, 4 adjustable strap and buckles, full kneehigh lacing, an inside zipper for easy wear, soft rubber soles, and a leather wrapped plastic heel, the Hjördis is the perfect boot for a classy night out at the Opera. Your Love Makes Me Sing.
*Please note the burgundy Hjördis comes in a subtle dark laser-etch only available in Women's 9-11, or a vibrant light laser-etch only available in Women's 6-8.5.
