SHOES, OUR PASSION
First and foremost, Pikolinos is a shoe with a lot of personality. For us, each shoe is unique. That's why we apply all of our experience and expertise to the craftsmanship sealing in the shoe's personality.
We identify with the Mediterranean lifestyle, not only with its light and splashes of color, but also with the mellow, laid-back nature of the region's people. Thus, our shoes are designed to be high-quality, comfortable footwear, embodying the values that, for us, are more important than trends.
OUR SECRET: LEATHER
Leather is the star of our shoes. A Pikolinos shoe is what it is thanks to the quality that we invest in its production. Our shoes are comfortable, resistant, high-quality, unique, featuring finely crafted finishes and are, most of all, Naturally Good." Our leather receives only natural treatments that leave it soft.
'To give back to society some of what society has given me' is the commitment that has always driven Juan Perán, President of Pikolinos, which is why the Juan Perán Pikolinos Foundation was set up in 2007. We're proud to cooperate with more than 16,000 families that are benefiting from our initiatives in Spain and in countries such as Peru, Guinea-Bissau and Kenya, among others.
In 2009, this commitment led to the creation of the Maasai Project, a line of ethnically-inspired footwear crafted by women from the Maasai community in Kenya. This project has brought us a number of acknowledgements, the most important being the recognition we have received from the more than 1,700 Kenyan families that have already taken part in the project.
Our commitment to the environment has put us on the cutting edge with regard to the use of chrome-free leather, water-based glues without toxic components and natural dyes.
