It was at the age of 20 that, in a small garage, Albano Pereira started tracing his first steps in the footwear business, producing his first pair of shoes. So he was made a cobbler. The craft of manufacturing raw materials such as leather, fabrics and rubber has been part of the life of our founder Albano Pereira since an early age. The quality of his shoes quickly spread and it was not long before his productions began to be sold at fairs and markets throughout northern Portugal. His first pair of shoes were sold in small grocery stores on the outskirts of Vizela and, on Sundays, outside churches, at the end of the mass. With a strong investment in the quality of raw materials and the manufacture of the pairs of shoes designed by him, interest in retailers, all over the country, did not take long to emerge. At the end of the 1980s, the fame of the footwear produced by Albano Pereira was already extending beyond borders, and it was at the time that the first contacts with international customers took place. The increased demand for the excellence of the footwear produced led Albano Pereira to found his first company with around 70 employees. Since 2005, Albano Pereira has established itself in the footwear market with a company in its own name where the detail, care, quality of the raw materials and the excellence of the final product, make Albano Pereira Shoes a reference both nationally and internationally.
