About the Brand - Mattina Shoes

Originating in 1994 as a factory specializing in the production of welted shoes for Japanese private labels, Mattina Shoes was launched in 2019 as the factory’s own brand. With an emphasis on harmonious design and the guidance of an in-house bespoke shoemaker, Mattina brings together a workforce experienced in creating high quality footwear for the discerning Japanese market. The result is a brand that can utilize the scale and efficiency of a factory to access excellent materials at accessible prices. Make no mistake – the quality of these handwelted shoes will delight casual wearers and enthusiasts alike. Mattina Shoes are proudly made in China, close to Shanghai.

Here are some of the features we choose to focus on, as well as some where we accept compromise at Mattina:
