Hello there!

We should probably start telling our story.

During his years working in the fashion industry, Paulo Silva, the founder of Portugal Shoes, acquired a huge know-how and a large network of shoe manufacturers in Portugal.

Among this time, he understood that many international shoe brands were facing big challenges. Placing the production at the right factories, that could give attention to the brands requirements and needs was a very difficult task.

“This needed to be solved! Brands needed help, they were asking for it, and I had the key to the solution. We ensure high quality and flexibility at fair price with no social hazards.”

In 1999 Paulo Silva, created Portugal Shoes, a business from Absolutarget group. The company’s headquarters are based in Felgueiras, a small town near Porto in the north of Portugal, worldwide recognized as the heart of top-quality shoemaking. There, we have been working on the “behind the scenes” for many well-known international fashion brands for more than 20 years.

Initially, the main goal of Paulo Silva was to help and support footwear fashion brands placing their productions in Portugal factories. Howeverquickly he understood that Portugal Shoes, would be much more than a manufacturer assistant.

Since day one Portugal Shoes team is committed to look for what each fashion brand need and expect with high-quality standards giving attention to every detail. At Portugal Shoes we know that each brand we work with has its own story and people, and we are the right partner to help them turn their ideas into reality.

“Today the efforts are not only in assisting our clients to navigate the fashion industry, but also in changing the industry through sustainability and transparency following it transitions.”
