I really love shoes. I really do. I think if I could only pick one thing in fashion to splurge on it would be shoes and Carmina Shoemaker has some of the most beautiful and finely crafted shoes on the planet.
This brand was started by Matias Pujadas in a small workshop in Inca, Majorca in 1866.
Many generations later…
…and after a downturn in the market for luxury shoes in 1997 (what were they thinking?) Carmina Shoemaker was born.
Created by Matais great-great grandson Jose Albaldejo and family, they decided to…
…provide some of best hand-crafted shoes to the world. And I must say, they have definitely succeeded in their mission.
I mean, just look at how beautiful these shoes and boots are.
And the styles are also incredibly timeless. Not an easy “feat” to pull off, (yeah, I did!)
And yet they are also very sexy.
And what I really love about this company is the fact that they also do gorgeous women’s shoes…
…that are inspired by their masculine counterparts.
I have such a big foot I can wear men’s or women’s shoes, but for the Dandi’s out there with smaller feet (but a bigger budget because these shoes start in the $400 range) this is definitely an investment well made.
