Urban Shepherds Boots, well made in Portugal

In a society where everything is discarded, in a society in which almost everything is ephemeral, forging our own path, forging our identity, is the most pressing need. This is the story of Tiago Maximo, a man who found a solution to this need. To the question: What do we need to create today? It seems to answer "something that lasts and that reminds us the importance of our personality, of our values ​​and the path that we still have to travel".

Inspired by the Portuguese original 50's work boots, the owner of Urban Shepherds Boots is committed to the development of quality products, with great resistance, that accompany their owners in an infinity of stories that they can tell their grandchildren when they become old.

Our identity, strength and values inherited from our culture must be resilient. The Urban Shepherds Boots remind us not only for its clear durability and first class materials, but also for the passion and techniques used by its talented artisans  that make us remember a long history, a tradition that refuses to die, a tradition that, contrary to what is believed, has come to the modern world to share its vision of the world and its values.

How it all started the Urban Shepherds Boots Project?

Why did we decide to start Urban Shepherds Boots? Precisely for a constant search for identity, for that need to find a way to express our ideas, our values, our conceptions about morality and ethics. Craft is probably the best way to express all these ideas. What a craftsman does not compare to simple products such as those made in mass, these products carry with them the effort, passion, conviction and delivery of the craftsman who makes them.

Our motto is "from the fields to the streets". Behind the cities there are stories of men and women who built those cities, who lived in the fields before living in them. These men and women were strong, determined, with firm values and ideals, people of conviction who made their way through history.

These men and women are our past, we come from there and because of that, we are also strong, determined, with a path ahead to forge. That's what Urban Shepherds Boots reminds us with its unique philosophy of life.
