High quality Goodyear-welted shoes are synonymous with classic English shoemaking. But, in fact, a few other countries also adopted this technique in the early days of mechanisation and Portugal has always been one of the main sources of this type of shoemaking.
Carlos Santos founded his shoemaking factory in 1942 and has been making classic Goodyear-welted footwear for over 70 years. Santos Shoes make a wide range of quintessentially English styled shoes in traditional box calf leathers. They also specialise in beautiful patina finishes, creating a unique look that can be as discreet or bold as you wish.
The quality of Santos Shoes footwear is quite wonderful. They are affordably priced but they are made to a standard that would cost at least double from an English maker. We are very pleased to have an association with Carlos Santos and we stock a small range of their classic footwear.
