The Alden Shoe Company was founded in 1884 by Charles H. Alden in Middleborough, Massachusetts. It is difficult to imagine just how active and important the shoe industry was in Massachusetts so long ago. Early New England shoemaking was a trade based upon one craftsman making a pair a day in one room cottages (called ’ten footers’). Beginning in 1850 a series of inventions led to mechanized stitching and lasting operations and the birth of New England shoe industry followed rapidly. The productivity gains over the traditional shoemaker were on the order of 500 - 700%, yet the new methods also led to an extraordinary improvement in both quality and consistency. In many ways the explosive growth of the shoe industry in eastern Massachusetts at the turn of the century reminds me of our modern day high-tech industry. New companies being started every week and demand soaring as product made its way west and south on newly expanded rail routes. Charles Alden’s factory prospered and expanded even adding children’s shoes to their offering of shoes and custom boots. By 1933, at Charles Alden’s retirement, operations moved to Brockton, Massachusetts and joined with the Old Colony factory. The Great Depression took a severe toll on the countless shoe companies in New England. Although production demand increased during World War II, by the late 40’s renewed consumer demand had fueled the search for manufacturing regions offering lower labor costs. Over the remainder of the century attrition would take hold as manufacturers looked farther and farther away in search of low cost labor and materials to meet the insatiable demand in the U.S.A. for low cost, mass-market consumer footwear. Most of the companies who remained in New England could not compete in the demanding post-war economy. Yet Alden prospered by relying not on lower quality mass-markets but on high quality dress shoes, and excelling in specialties such as orthopedic and medical footwear. It was a period of growth and intensive development at Alden, especially in the design of comfortable, orthopedically correct lasts. In 1970 a new factory was constructed in Middleborough, Massachusetts where production continues today. Alden is now the only original New England shoe and bootmaker remaining of the hundreds who began so long ago. Still a family owned business, still carrying forward a tradition of quality genuine-welted shoemaking that is exceptional in every way.

Bagllerina’s History This is not the first entrepreneurial experience for Christine Natkin. After 20 years of managing her eponymous company of Press Relations & Communication, Natkin Press, and through her experience in the corporate world as well as her many travels, Christine had a revelation: women are always in a hurry and have to manage both their professional and personal lives. With this observation, a problem arises: how can they stay feminine in all circumstances?
Thus, having identified this simple but real issue, Christine, passionate and elegant, launched in January 2011 a product faithful to her image, Bagllerina. Her idea is to think of different fashion accessories that transform the lives of women in a very effective formula combining comfort, simplicity, elegance and well-being.
«The idea of “Bagllerina’ is born of a lack. How can I simplify the daily lives of women by creating a useful, beautiful and comfortable accessory? Outside, an accessory that slips into your bag and simply replaces your shoes whilst being elegant. Inside, a nice accessory that is a pleasure to wear and show. Bagllerina is something that we own, a well-being element taking part of our secret garden. »
Christine Natkin plans to develop other ranges of accessories... Bagllerina still has some nice surprises in store!
Bagllerina Concept’s The Bagllerina are the essential of your wardrobe. Fold them in their leather pouch, slip them into your handbag ... and you’re ready to start your day peacefully.
Bagllerina is the first foldable ballerina made entirely of leather. The brand offers a wide selection of high quality ballerinas, easy to carry thanks both to their size and their weight. This smart accessory is made up of a pair of foldable leather ballerinas, a leather pouch and a nylon bag in which the taken off shoes are kept. They fold in half to help women in any daily situation, eliminating all worries related to comfort.
To satisfy all customers, Bagllerina proposes three different shapes. The Daily is the most classic and covers an important part of the foot, the Gorgeous, more modern, reveals a little more the foot. And at last, the Liberty is a model without a lace around the ledge, for a simple but effective style.

Campomaggi bags are created through a very thorough process: each piece is dyed in barrels containing specially chosen vegetable dyes.

The story of the brand goes back to 1993 with the foundation of the mother company, “Always Shoes” that Paulo Martins has opened in Portugal to give creative and production support to famous international fashion companies in the shoemaking business.
Ten years later Paulo Martins with a profound know-how and experience decides to create a handcrafted and creative brand as a result of the growing demand of a brand with a strong personality and its own identity. So on the 17th September 2003 was born the brand “Catarina Martins”: a name chosen because it belonged to well-known personalities throughout history, but above all, Catarina has a great personal significance because it is the same name Paulo Martins gave his daughter.
With a small team, young and dynamic, with a dedication and loyalty, and alongside the partners and representatives, who Paulo Martins likes to call “Friends”, the brand has grown with a surprising speed. The company that initially started with only two people today has turned into a group of 14 professionals with a turnover of 15 million euros.
The product “Catarina Martins” is distributed in the mid- high range of shops in France, Benelux, Germany, Spain, Denmark, Eastern Europe, Greece, Japan and Portugal. Nowadays its major market is Italy, where demand, quality and design are prevailing factors to stand out from other shoe brands.
The company is a regular participant at the main international fairs and venues, such as the GDS in Düsseldorf, the MICAM in Milan, the CPM in Moscow, the Première Classe in Paris or the PREMIUM in Berlin.
This collection that is made for a woman with a jovial spirit, dynamic, that appreciates quality, fashion and comfort is conceived with selected raw materials and handcrafted with utmost dedication and care. That is why every item is unique and bears the label “SHOES MADE IN REGION OF OPORTO (PORTUGAL)”. This is a tribute to the region and the people who produce these shoes.
Catarina Martins is above all a united team with an unusual collaborative spirit that personifies the brand’s philosophy/slogan “Life is too short to take a nap”.
Born from a small company, develops and specializes in Padua immediately in the field of women’s shoes medium to high.
The extraordinary passion and experience of those who began the project, joined the meeting with a partner of the Italian footwear, gave the line a strong vintage inspired, designed particularly as a service to clothing stores who wish to research a product to be attached to their collections.
Chie Mihara launched her shoe line in Elda, Spain, in January 2002 in order to offer women something different, footwear designed by woman for women, with a priority placed on design and comfort. ’we’re mothers, working women, active women!’ she said, ’and we should have shoes that match our needs. We want to look femenine, beautiful, attractive but without giving up comfort’. Drawing on vintage influences ranging from 1930s feminity to 1980s humor, she began taking details from the past and reworking them to reflect contemporary esthetics and modern fashion. Her distinctive footwear quickly gained a following devoted to Chie’s unique approach to comfort and style.
Chie Mihara has now over 1000 clients worldwide, including luxury department stores such as Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus in the U.S.A, Selfridges in England, Isetan in Japan, and Le Bon Marché in Paris.

About Us Espadrilles or Espartena date back to a very distant past: some say they were already popular in the ancient Greece and Rome. What we know for sure is where they were born: the Pyrenees, at the border of France and Spain. There, more than 40 years ago, the Espadrilles adventure began.
Concept Quintessentially, naturally original, Espadrilles are a wise mix of creativeness, design and eco-friendly values. Made using the traditionally spun yarn cotton stripes and sewn by hand onto the Cordura sole, today as in the past, Espadrilles are manufactured with a century-old technique, used to make even the most contemporary models. A timeless style icon, Espadrilles are strictly hand-made only, as the ideal marriage of the most traditional methods and the most innovative, sophisticated design.
The evergreen Espadrilles now are iconic, legendary and timeless shoes. Worn by famous politicians such as Juan Domingo Peron or simply by european immigrants of South America, they have been the protagonists of dramatical historical changes. Now considered a cult object, their style is never out of date.
The original Thanks to Ferrari & Zenobi, in the first half of the eighties, Espadrilles became a true icon, worn by the most important people in the world and reinterpreted by the most fashionable international designers. Today, Espadrilles is the one and only brand able to link its own image to such a timeless symbol of the european culture.

FLOGG FLIP FLOP + CLOG = FLOGG The New California Dream In the 1970s the womens liberation movement was born. The quest for equality in society made women also yearn for freedom of expression in their clothing. The Europeans influenced American fashion with sexualized glamour, style icons Jane Birkin, Bianca Jagger, Brigit Bardot & Farrah Fawcett made miniskirts and platforms popular silhouettes that keep re-appearing on today modern catwalks.
Now with FLOGG, disco dancing can be so much more fun as retro classic shapes are made more comfortable with the flip flop EVA component, facilitating womens agile an upwardly mobile status.
FLOGG is a revolutionary new category of footwear -inspired by the laid back California lifestyle and invented for all women who want to feel good and look fantastic without sacrificing design.
Carol de Leon, The Soul Behind The Brand After years of designing for fashion and comfort brands alike, veteran shoe designer Carol de Leon took a moment to deeply think about what was truly needed in the market. Having the ability to design any imaginable shoe possible, her immediate need for a shoe that offered height with a cool comfort factor led to the invention of the latest shoe sensation, FLOGG. In flight, on a cocktail napkin, at the tail end of a research and design trip from Milan, she sketched what she imagined to be a hip shoe that she could dance in all night. With a chunky wood base construction, topped with a layer of EVA, the material your most comfortable flip flops are made of...and voila! A fantastic hybrid of two iconic types of footwear, a flip flop and a clog was born...FLOGG.
The first FLOGG collection has been developed with great secrecy. De Leon wanted to maintain the project under wraps because of its novelty and entrusted the endeavor only to shoe technicians with whom she had long lasting relationships. Most of the prototypes were kept out of factories and made by hand on the kitchen table. Meanwhile, a California dreaming lifestyle concept evolved around the casual chic designs and without doing any formal trade shows or presentations, the first collection was shown to top buyers by invitation only in October . With most budgets already spent for the Spring 2013 season, buyers scurried to find the dollars to add FLOGG to their selections because they immediately recognized that this new shoe line had great potential to be the next hot iconic brand likened to Uggs and Crocs. The first delivery of FLOGG will be this Spring in stores like Nordstrom, Belk, Shop Bop and many independents nationwide. International distributors are already lined up to view the new Fall 2013/14 line at the Micam shoe show in Milan this March.
The positive response from the retailers has been so incredible, De Leon is still in disbelief. ’ I honestly designed this for myself, and I had no idea that the positive response would be so widespread and well received. I’m extremely happy to be able to share this new shoe concept with all the women out there with the same need. I’m also extremely thrilled to be part of something exciting and new in the market. Many times in the design process you strive to create something so new and different, never been done before, it leaves you uncertain about the marketability and whether the new design would be sellable and relevant to the needs of the market. For years I have traveled the world on research and development trips, only to find that if I start from within, I can determine what is absolutely essential’.
The mother of invention is need so they say. FLOGG is the new hot item that satisfies your fashion whims at the same time that it addresses the most absolute need to feel confident, comfortable and carefree. Life is too short to look good and feel bad. Now vanity has never felt so good!

On March 10th, 1863, John A. Frye opened the doors of a small shop on Elm Street in Marlboro, Massachusetts. The shoes he made werent icons of fashion or fanciful in style. They served a simple purpose: to ease the daily working lives of the hundreds of factory workers in that small New England town.
The individuals who wore the first Frye shoes were just like us: people who valiantly labored, honing skill and craft, supporting their families and community. When homesteading sparked adventurous New England families to head west in the mid and late 1800s, many of those pioneers wore Frye boots along the journey.
In time, John Fryes family would grow and, along with it, The Frye Company would expand. Each generation of Frye men dedicated themselves to the art and craft of shoemaking, creating new patterns, discovering new materials, and even inventing shoe-making machinery. Their fervor for the process of crafting footwear as durable as it is beautiful has been our companys benchmark, ever since. And this dedication has helped us craft footwear with a long and illustrious history.
Fryes Harness boot is rooted in this tradition and continues to draw inspiration from the American Cavalry. During a 1938 trip to Washington, D.C., John A. Fryes grandson and namesake met a U.S. Navy Admiral who noted his difficulty in finding the Wellington styles he liked so much. As a favor, John agreed to make him a pair. Frye continued to fill these requests for boots through World War II.
By mail order, the company supplied thousands of brave soldiers and pilots with Frye Wellingtons, known as Jet boots. Our boots traveled the world on the feet of American servicemen, from Normandy to Okinawa even General Patton wore a pair.
Today our classic Harness boot holds a treasured place in American culture, has been featured in international fashion spreads and enjoys strong sales all over the world. Our line still includes many styles based closely on their 1860 originals.
The CAMPUS boot featured a bulky toe and chunky heel that came to epitomize the attitude and styles of the 1960s and 1970s. The Smithsonian Institute, in its search for items to best represent America during the Sixties, chose a pair of CAMPUS boots that proudly remain on display today in our nations capital.
This is our history and our heritage, told in every stitch of every shoe weve made for nearly 150 years: across cultural shifts and changes in fashion, for generation upon generation. Now, Frye boots are accessorized and envied on city streets, worked and roughed up on country roads, and chosen above all others for their inimitable style and uncompromising quality.
And yet, despite our reach and success as a boot maker, our mission to make the best-looking, hardest-working, longest-lasting shoes and leather goods hasnt changed since our days on Elm Street. All woman products by FRYE - since 1863

laidback london is an ethical shoe label that was set up in 2002. The brand is about the product and the people that make it. We are committed to working out of Africa where we are making a positive social and economic impact on the local communities that we work with.
Our signature sandal line is hand crafted using traditional techniques. Where possible, raw materials are sourced locally. The leathers come from a small tannery they are dyed by hand and then left out in the sun to dry naturally. The rubber outsoles are sourced from a local factory and these are prepared and cut by hand. The uppers are embellished with beads by hand every fifth bead is sewn directly onto the leather. On average, one person can embellish four pairs of uppers in one day. These labour intensive processes provide much needed jobs and give the sandals an authentic, handmade feel.
The line has been influenced by various African cultures, tribes and artisanal workmanship. Over the years we have been able to provide training, support as well as crucially, a constant flow of work that provides a sustainable income, which in turn has a significant impact on the local communities as well as on the next generation.
Every shoe has a story. Your story starts here.
Since 2002. laidback london was born out of a desire to go back to basics. To make products the old fashioned way - by hand, using traditional techniques. To work with the imperfections to create naturally unique and individual products. Timeless pieces that are made to last, that wear better with age.
Walk, don’t run. Having moved to London in 1997, the label’s founder wanted to bring back a part of the laid-back lifestyle he had experienced growing up on the coastal town of Mombasa to the big city.

Made in Italy: at 100x100... this ever a source of pride, a full year for people that does not spare himself in seeking quality assurance in what they build with ’their hands’ and that makes the products certified and certified in their originality. The shoes are meticulous in detail, nothing is left to chance and work to bring the product effect ’measure’.
MINA creative head
History, Culture, Design 3 ingredients that are blended to create recipes that form the elite MINA CREATIVE HEAD... 3 souls that give life to the style, shape and refinement to our shoes...
Being attracted to a form, a style, be taken in an instinctive way from the simplicity that these are not necessarily synonymous with collective but one expression of its sensitivity.
I call myself Mina, because it means ’girl’, in Buenos Aires. And Buenos Aires is the hometown of my grandmother, who was a tango dancer and teacher: I look exactly like her, and she’s taught me nearly everything I know. I am Italian, but Argentina and tango were the first sounds of my life, and they have inspired the creation of my shoes collection. Shoes for feet whose steps are sensual and quick. Shoes for those who dance through life.
I have been travelling since I was a child, and I lived in Paris, Barcelona and London, but only in Italy I have found the right answers to the sounds I have in my heart and in my mind. It was my father’s father who taught me how to make shoes. He is a fine craftsman who knows the best leather and secrets to create the perfect shoes. His moves are unwavering, free from hesitations, and full of emotions, just like the moves of tango. I have married tango to this exquisite Italian tradition from Emilia, the precious art of shoe making. This is my story, this is all I am, this my idea of shoes: it’s an emotion created from work and dreams. If you want a dream to live and flourish, you need to take care of it, in every single detail.
Each MOMA product is produced in a real workshop where craftsmen, artists, workers and designers under the direction of Gigio and Daniele Gironacci exchange their experiences.
In 1992, Gigio and Daniele Gironacci decided that making shoes was not their only objective. Who are we? We are two craftsmen who set our hands to work and who believe that “well done” is not perfect. For us, a product is what we have in mind and what we can realize by experimenting with old and new technologies. In our workshop, everyone who is talented can contribute their ideas. Something influences our ideas and our products are actually always innovative. Where are we? We are located in the heart of the hilly countryside of the Marches. Is there anything better in this world than these hills? We decided to live here and to get our energy from this soil, this plain history and this rural spirit. We are inspired by the thought that everything we produce is the derivative of other goods that have existed already. Our processing is often inspired by the mildew on a grapevine, the moss on a tree bark, the rust … by all the things that have a clear beginning and a clear end. Each of our products tells a straight and simple story in which the experiences of the past live on.
What we do. We work. We learn the processing of the raw materials, the methods of processing and the techniques by watching the artists and farmers and give shape to a vision. What was our principle? Our principle: Midnight Over My Action. MOMA. We hurled ourselves into this adventure bearing these words in mind. There is a dividing line between tradition and new craftsmanship, just like the line that separates the old day from the new. Both comply with the same rules but are not equal. When we started the production of “the used and the dirty” we did not intend to start a trend. Our products were supposed to have a character that has lived a life, such as the wrinkles in the face of a person or the scars of an injury, which create each person’s individual history. How do we introduce ourselves? Just the way we are. What would we like to see happen with this website? We would be glad if it becomes a meeting place for ideas of any kind.

NUMERO 10 È LA CREATURA NATA DALL’INGEGNO DI ALBERTO MONDINI, ARTIGIANO DA 40 ANNI NEL SETTORE DELLA MODA E DELLA PELLE. La vocazione di Alberto per la pelle gli proviene dalla tradizione famigliare e si è tradotta in un metodo di lavoro che recupera al 100% l’artigianalità storica italiana per la realizzazione di prodotti innovativi e funzionali ma attraenti e con il fascino dei fuoriclasse. L’idea è venuta nel corso di una conversazione con un’amica stilista esperta di streetware, Valeria Monzeglio. Fondamentale l’incontro con la figura avventurosa e affascinante del padre, il leggendario aviatore ticinese Ettore Monzeglio e con le borse dell’aviazione elvetica.
CON LO SPIRITO AVVENTUROSO DEI GRANDI AVIATORI E LA GRINTA DI CHI VUOL VOLARE ALTO SI È PRESENTATO ALLA FIERA WHITE NEL 2003: Volevo un prodotto da fuoriclasse come il numero 10 nella squadra di calcio e la circostanza della nascita di mio figlio, il 10 dicembre del 2002, mi ha suggerito che ero sulla buona strada. Figlio di Giorgio Mondini, campione italiano di ciclismo, Alberto ha superato nello stile la passione iniziale per il vintage customizzato e oggi produce borse e accessori unisex nuovi, originali per ispirazione, unici per selezione e trattamenti del cuoio e dei pellami.
Il sogno avverato è di produrre borse dalla personalità inconfondibile perché ogni esemplare è lavorato e tinto a mano come facevano gli antichi artigiani del cuoio toscani. L’obiettivo è di realizzare accessori che entrano nella vita delle persone e diventano importanti, fondamentali. Questo è possibile solo concentrandosi su modelli che possono accompagnarci tutti i giorni senza stancare, essere dimenticati un bel giorno nell’armadio e, se ripescati dopo anni, mantenere fresco e attuale il loro fascino.

Patterns are sewn by hand, by artisans who are well aware of the long and difficult process of the tubular with waxed thread of American cotton.

Growing up with four distinct seasons in Norway, I never let go of the black rubber galoshes that my late grandfather passed on to me. In 1999 they accompanied me to a milder, but still rainy Paris. Wearing Chuck Taylor’s Converse and galoshes, I got around the severe rainfall that autumn. Not surprisingly, my footwear became the subject of many jokes around the art school I attended. Later, while living in New York, I blended in with an image-conscious culture that defied slushy streets, freezing winds and pouring rain. Naturally, this resulted in a lot of discomfort and many ruined pairs of shoes. A few more Manhattan winters went by while I searched for the right product before I finally took matters in my own hands and decided to develop SWIMS - The Modern Galosh! A stylish solution, embodying the essence of practicality: Wear your favorite shoes, slip on SWIMS when the weather is rough, slip’em off when you arrive at your destination. Enhanced comfort is assured and your shoes are guaranteed to stay shiny.
The SWIMS galosh is the product of my own experience, my appreciation of functional design, and my odd fascination with big city rain. All woman products by SWIMS
