Wedges are a must-have for every woman because of their specific design for comfort. They are suitable for whole day wear while portraying a lady-like look. They can be a great and fabulous accessory for ‘dressing up or down’. If you’re looking for a classic wedge shoe and more, look no further! Calzada – is an online shoe brand that has a fancy range to choose from.
It is owned and designed by Shafeeqah, who grew up in Cape Town and completed her studies at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology. She then continued pursuing her career as a Fashion Merchandiser in the Retail Industry. Her love for shoes started at a very young age where she would unpack her mother’s shoe closet on a daily basis and play shoe-shoe with her sister.
Calzada was established when she went on vacation to India to do some exploring. Amongst all the hustle and bustle, she found a shoe district that produced all hand-made shoes. Coming across this gem, she pursued her dream of designing for a niche market in her leisure time. The brand was officially launched in November 2018.
She always strives to be productive, focused with strong design flair and passion for starting off new and exciting projects. The brand aesthetic was to design shoes for the stylish modern woman who love adding fun into her closet.
The brand strives to manufacture quality handmade shoes at reasonable prices. Striking the balance for price and quality is very challenging, considering all the shoes are hand-made. Each shoe is made with time, effort and lots of love.
The brand is new and fresh with endless amount of possibilities to discover.
