Handmade shoes often remind us of a different time, a time when men and women alike would work together with a shoemaker to create the perfect pair of shoes for everyday life as well as special occasions, when shoes weren’t mass produced, but made by hand.

The idea of creating this brand came during a trip to Madrid, when the owners discovered a newly established shoe business offering high quality handmade shoes. The idea appealed to them so much that they decided to create Qüero Shoes, a brand focused on one simple credo: offer high quality shoes at an affordable price and treat customers like family.

But it wasn’t just about creating beautiful handmade shoes. They wanted them to be comfortable, to be the kind of shoes that look impeccable, yet at the same time offer the level of comfort that allows customers to wear them all day long without feeling any discomfort.

They set out to find a factory in Spain and they settled on one in Almansa, about three hours south of Madrid. The attention to detail and to each process; cutting, sewing, assembling and finishing, is of the highest order. Working directly with the factory at every step, and sourcing the highest Italian, French and Spanish leathers, allowed the team to bypass normal industry middlemen and pass on the savings to the customers.
