Choosing the ideal pair of shoes can be challenging. Finding the perfect balance between style and comfort is difficult but rewarding once we find an excellent pair. Let us make the search easier by suggesting two Portuguese brands of high-quality footwear created by independent designers.
Luís Contreiras has spent over 20 years working in the fashion industry, first as a model and consultant, to finally find his purpose, starting a footwear brand, PINTTA. Today, this Portuguese independent brand gains popularity thanks to its classic and yet, creative style.
Widely known and loved models receive new energy by added colourful details, mixed patterns and textures. The unique style draws attention to the brand's products, but it is comfort that confirms the belief in the quality of PINTTA. All shoes by the brand are handcrafted with fine materials.
In 2016, Bruno Queirós established the new brand of designer footwear for creative, slightly eccentric men - The Baron’s Cage. The label’s shoes are based on classic designs with added extraordinary twists. Inspired by the old bourgeoisie, The Baron’s Cage targets modern, self-confident gentlemen who are not afraid of a bit of extravagance.
The brand's products are 100% made in Portugal. The Baron’s Cage takes pride in their polished production process involving a priceless, perennial experience of their team of artisans.
