A typical shoe shop before the 19th century wouldn’t have looked much different from ours today. Groups of shoemakers would work together, crafting each shoe, one at a time, entirely by hand. Their artistry and attention to detail, made each shoe a work of art.
But over time, people were replaced by machines, and the focus became volume over craft. Shoes are mass produced today but machines can’t replicate the artistry of a shoemaker who uses skills passed down from generation to generation.
In the small town of Masaya, Nicaragua our artisan team uses their gifts to create each shoe with care. We’re so proud to work with them and connect you all to the beauty of handmade.
