shoe factory in Portugal producing calla shoes for bunions

Our exclusive Calla shoe designs are brought to life by an established family business of expert shoe makers in Portugal, who care as much about our shoes and your feet as we do.

Portugal has a significant footwear industry and excellent knowledge and experience in designing and making high heeled fashion shoes for many high street and designer brands.  In fact, at Kate and William's Royal wedding, the Princess's sister and mother both chose to wear shoes for that special day specially comissioned and expertly made by a Portuguese footwear company.  Lady Gaga is also known to use Portugal as the place to have her own bespoke shoes made.

Quality craftsmanship, superior materials and our unique design make Calla shoes a high end product which you will love and want to wear again and again.

The Calla shoe collection includes heels that have been designed to meet a specific need - which is when you absolutely need to wear a fabulous pair of shoes, such as to a Christmas party, wedding or another special occasion but your bunions are stopping you finding a perfect pair which fit your feet.

It is not advised to wear our heels for everyday wear as you will only be making your existing problem worse. For every day you should ideally wear flat(ish) comfortable shoes with enough room in the shoe so your toes and bunions won't be crushed, our ballet style flats may just be ideal for you.

Unfortunately Calla shoes will not make your bunions go away, but we can help you look and feel fabulous in your heels.

Calla shoes may not be suitable for people who suffer from severe bunions or suffer from bunions in combination with other foot conditions. What we suggest is to try a pair yourself and see.

What is a bunion?

A bunion is a bony deformity of the joint at the base of the big toe. The medical name for them is hallux valgus.
