Shoes, oh shoes, they can be quite the conundrum. Seeking the pinnacle of quality, local craftsmanship, ethical production, and eco-friendliness is no easy feat. My circle of friends are increasingly aware of these details, particularly when it comes to the caliber of the footwear they adorn their feet with. The rise of countless brands peddling their wares across an array of online platforms has blurred the image of those stalwart, high-quality, and expertly crafted brands that have earned their reputation over time.
But, fret not, dear Reader! At Sky Blue, we've got your best interest in mind. We've done the research and are here to tackle these daunting questions for you. Let us introduce you to one of our favorite brands for shoes - Carmina. Hailing from the stunning island of Majorca, this brand boasts a long and noble history that dates back to 1866. For generations, the Albaladejo family has proudly carried on the tradition of crafting bespoke shoes in the town of Inca. With shops now gracing the streets of several prominent Spanish cities, as well as Paris and New York, Carmina's shoes are all made in Majorca using the traditional Goodyear welt technique.
So why settle for less when you can have the best? Let Carmina elevate your shoe game and take you on a journey of unparalleled quality and craftsmanship.
