Where are my Good Guys Shoes produced?
We have several suppliers within the European Union (EU), read below the different countries where our shoes are produced and why.
Made in Portugal 🇵🇹
We had only one supplier in Portugal in Guimaraes near Porto when we started our journey in 2011. We reach out to them with many design ideas and a brand new concept; we want to create a shoe line that is 100% Vegan!
We used alternatives to leather and suede, 100% animal-free materials. We tested and adjusted the production chain and techniques for a year to these new materials. Our suppliers were intrigued and agreed to the challenge.
For our first season, we gathered 900 pairs for production from boutiques and stores worldwide, which boosted our confidence that Vegan products could find their place in a Leather dominated world.
Our cowboy boots, western boots, and sneakers are produced in Portugal.
Made in Italy 🇮🇹
In the Marche region, where ancient savoir-faire and traditional techniques are preserved, and factories are small family businesses. You can find factories working on different shoe components, which create a local community of shoemakers, sole makers, and material suppliers, reducing distances and carbon footprint.
Our socks are produced in the North of Italy 🇮🇹. The factory only works with OEKOTEX® yarns. The owner Angelo bought his first two machines in 1974 and started his business. Today his daughter Marina is our precious help in realizing our design with the best techniques. These made-in-Italy socks are the perfect match to accessories to our shoes.
Made in Spain 🇪🇸
Our sandals are produced in an artisan workshop near Toledo in Spain. They exclusively manufacture vegan footwear and have a savoir-faire for comfortable footbed and open-toe shoes.
Their production has been 100% vegan since 2016, but they have manufactured footwear for over 100 years. This small "atelier" has been certified as an artisan workshop for its traditional manufacturing process by the "Ministry of Industry of Spain."
For our summer sandals, we use the anatomical insole made from cork, latex, and jute they created, a firm pillow for the foot: light, comfortable, flexible, and absorbent.
