Four collections each season, great focus on the quality of materials and wellbeing of feet, with a desire to unite traditional and modern

A brother and sister who have behind them a long family tradition in footwear, rooted in the manufacture of boots from Alentejo, in the south of Portugal, and a small shoe shop in Lisbon.

Thanks to this background in 2011 Helena Amante Oliveira, creative director, and Miguel Marques were able to launch their own brand, Shoes Closet.

We focus not only on design and fit but also try to help those who wear our shoes to change their posture for healthier results. Obviously we choose the best quality materials, preferably natural ones

Each season Shoes Closet offers four different new collections inspired by the variation of modern life. The objective is to continually reinvent, to create worlds of footwear that each have their own well-defined individual personality, their own colours, lines and materials.

We have a passion for everything to do with making shoes, loving the smell of leather and glue, but we also aim to respect the environment while embracing tradition and the sparkling culture of modern life

When the shape supports the function: Benincasa Shoes

The principle of modernism passes from architecture to footwear, thanks to the vision of Maija Benincasa. The stylist who studied at the Arsutoria school, associates the aesthetics of her footwear with a functionality that also ensures comfort. For this reason, she invented an original method for customising the shoe and allowing her customers to enjoy a tailored experience.
