WHY URBAN SHEPHERD WAS STARTED

However, in the ‘90s, the traditional leather work boots stopped being fashionable, and the mass commercialization of footwear manufactured in an industrial way practically led to the extinction of the craft workshops where they were originally manufactured.

I never liked the throwaway consumption, nor have I paid much attention to fashion and trends. I am one of those who prefers to be governed by the authenticity and quality of things.

Then I had a vision: to manufacture the boots myself, in Portugal, with artisan methods that would maintain that original appearance using genuine Portuguese leather and premium materials. The boots showed me the destiny, and together, we walked every step of the way until I turned my idea into a brand: Urban Shepherd.
