Behind the scenes: Paseo

Behind the scenes: Paseo

When we first started our business in 2016 we had a solid foundation of what we wanted the heart of our business to be. We wanted to connect you all to the beauty of handmade. Not just the products themselves, but the people who make them and the impact that buying handcrafted can make. While that vision was clear, the products we were going to sell weren’t. During our first few months of business we sold a large variety of artisan made goods including wallets, embroidered bags, macrame swings etc!
 
During this process, we had started working with a young artisan shoemaker named Marvin (who is now our head artisan and business partner) to produce a small line of leather children’s sandals that we wanted to include in our shop. We were shocked by the response to these sandals and knew within the first year that Adelisa & Co would become a children’s shoe business.
 
When our first fall season in business approached, we had to come up with a fall appropriate shoe that our customers would love so that we could keep our newly founded, small shoemaking team working. With their speciality in leather craft and our desire to create timeless, vintage inspired designs, our Paseo children's boot was created and has since become our top selling shoe.
 
The word Paseo in Spanish means to go on a walk or an outing and that’s exactly what they’re meant to do, accompany you and your little ones on all of life’s adventures. We love seeing your tagged photos and all the amazing memories you have made in these boots throughout the years! You can shop this beloved style here in children's, women's and men's sizes.
Allison & Rachel, Xx
