I have a soft spot for shoes made in Portugal because they’re usually unique in design, a little relaxed in style and superbly made. Soft leather, neat detailing and for the most part really comfortable.
I stumbled across Portuguese shoe brand “Fidji” last year and fell in love. They’re not cheap, but well worth the price. Hardy, hip, 8-hour city shoes. And you guessed it — the best part about this range of footwear is the heel height. A fabulous and much sought after one to two inches. Hallelujah.
If you’re not into lowish heels then look away. But if you prefer them like I do, get a pair of Fidjis on your feet as soon as possible.
I am the proud owner of a pair of Fidji’s from their new Spring/Summer 2010 collection. My feet are so insanely happy when I wear these shoes that I want to personally fly to Portugal to hug and thank the footwear designer right now. Can you guess which ones stole my heart?
