HANDMADE AND HEART-MADE

We’re deeply committed to working towards a better future for our community of sapateros. By collaborating with them, we are empowering them and helping them build their own sustainable livelihoods.
WHERE IT ALL STARTED...
Shoe shopping has always been a special bonding moment for sisters Jenny and Christine. They are also huge supporters of locally-made footwear and homegrown brands.
However, Jenny would normally wander down the aisles of shoe stores for hours looking for that elusive pair of size-10 beauties.
For Jenny, shoe shopping is like a game of scavenger hunt for the ample-footed. If only local brands carry women’s shoes all the way up to a size 11…
This became a light-bulb moment for Jenny. She grabbed her ride-or-die partner-in-crime sister Christine, and armed with loads of ideas and even more passion, their first local shoe brand was introduced.
But startups change paths on a dime, as do Jenny and Christine’s shoe business, which were met with branding and distributorship challenges along the way. So after a couple of stops and detours, La Solédad Studios finally came to be.
From their very first pair of L.A. kitten heels to everyone’s favorite Manila full-abaca heels, La Solédad became a go-to brand for wearable wardrobe staples in timeless designs, made available in extended sizes and for a price that won’t hurt.
As they say, the destination matters but it’s the journey that makes it all worthwhile. And for Jenny and Christine, finding their path was more an act of following their passion moment by moment than an act of searching, as this led them to discovering creative freedom, helping a local community of sapateros and simply doing what they love.
