Sparrods & Co Team
We use traditional shoemaking processes and technology to ensure excellent quality, fit, and craftsmanship. Our shoes go through an iterative process from design and development through pattern cutting and clicking to lasting, closing and finishing. Every process is completed by hand.
We use both Blake rapid stitched and Goodyear welted construction methods, which enable our shoes to be resoled (repaired) several times by any experienced cobbler, giving you value for money.
When it comes to our leather selection, we don’t cut corners or use synthetic leather(Polyurethane, or PU) in any of our shoes. Our leather selection goes through stringent quality assurance process and due diligence to ensure it meets our strong environmental standard.
We source our leather from some of the finest tanneries in Europe. We use high-quality calfskin leathers which are soft and durable and age beautifully over time, developing an amazing patina.
We travelled the world in search of a workshop to produce our products. We sampled many products from different workshops and finally settled on a small family-run workshop in Porto,Portugal that has been producing shoes for decades and is well known for producing for many luxury brands.
Portugal is at the forefront of the luxury shoe market, with decades of experience in the craft.
Our products are handcrafted by Portuguese artisans. They exhibit excellent craftsmanship with strong attention to detail.
All products come in limited editions and are not mass produced, which enables us to emphasise quality, fit, and style.
We started Sparrods to offer high-quality, handcrafted leather products at accessible prices to customers without comprising on quality or craftsmanship. We ship products directly to our customers, eliminating unnecessary overhead and retail markups.
