Flat shoes that make the world a better place for women

Big Idea

One day, a woman had a dream. Others joined her and Josefinas was created. Josefinas is a Portuguese brand inspired by a dream. In a country in crisis, where there was little room for dreams, making handmade shoes had a new name: Josefinas. In Portugal, there is something that has never died: the savoir faire of craftsmanship and the passion for an idea. “Never give up” has always been Josefinas’ motto. The name Josefinas is in honor of the brand’s co-founder Filipa Júlio’s grandmother. The hope is that Josefinas’ story will inspire the path of many other women, straight to making their dreams a reality, just as it inspires us every day!
