About Us

This is why I started Urban Shepherds


Urban shepherds  – “from the fields to the streets”

 Urban Shepherds was founded by two Portuguese friends in January 2014.

Urban Shepherds boots are made using traditional methods and are lovingly hand crafted in a Portuguese workshop that began making boots for the working class in the 50s.

Urban Shepherds seeks to preserve the heritage of skilled, high quality boot making, and works in partnership with 10 skilled artisans who manufacture the boots by hand in the central region of Portugal.

Today, the boots are designed maintaining the original look, and are made using high quality natural and recycled materials to ensure minimal impact to the environment.

Urban Shepherds is driven by the desire to maintain the highest standards of traditional craftsmanship, whilst offering a unique, personal service.
