Shoe Design

Josefinas’ mission is to inspire women worldwide to make their dreams come true. Filipa Júlio, Maria Cunho and Sofia Oliveira are the heart of this project, born in Porto, and are, just like all Josefina’s owners out there, strong, confident and determined women, women who have dreams and who push themselves further and beyond.   Their drive to understand women’s deepest needs and desires is key when designing the irreverent models that have already won over the hearts of the likes of Chiara Ferragni, Leandra Medine, Aimee Song, Olivia Palermo and Jessica Biel.

Founded in 2013, the brand has become an important reference of growth and international consolidation. At the core of its success is the fact that nothing is overlooked; thought goes into every little detail, which is why their shoes are so special. They each have a story, a life and a personality of its own; their design, the careful choice of materials and the dedication of the Portuguese artisans at whose hands each shoe comes to life make them unique. Even the brand’s name is meaningful: it  pays homage to Maria Josefina, founder Filipa Júlio’s grandmother, who taught her that passion and perseverance should be beacons in our path. Their ballet flats, tennis shoes, boots, shoes and accessories can be ordered online or bought ath their flagship store in New York.
