The Top 5 Reasons Our Shoes are So Special
Wondering what makes Joyasol shoes so special? Let's take a closer look.
1 - made in portugal
We take pride in working with boutique factories in Northern Portugal with a long history of shoemaking. Each pair is individually handcrafted by artisanal shoemakers earning living wages. Read more about our ethical standards here and a behind the scenes look at our factory here.
2 - affordable luxury
We aim to bring the highest quality shoes at more affordable prices than other brands. Our shoes are made in the same factory as top luxury brands, but offered at a fraction of the price.
3 - sustainable materials
We only use the highest quality, sustainable materials we can find within a short radius to our factory. From Leather Working Group Certified leather to recycled insoles to natural rubber, all of our materials are responsibly sourced to have the least impact on our natural resources without compromising durability, comfort or style. Take a closer look at the anatomy behind our first style here.
4 - designed by women for women
Like many industries, the footwear industry is primarily male dominated. We are proud to be female founded and owned, designed specifically for women’s feet, style and comfort needs. To learn more about our founder's story and why she started Joyasol, read here.
5 - giving back
With each pair sold, we donate 1% of our proceeds to 1% for the planet, which gives back to our people and planet. We also give back through Soles4Souls, which turns unwanted shoes into opportunity in underprivileged communities. Learn more here.
