Made in Portugal: JAK

JAK is a new Made in Portugal footwear label

With the amount of upcoming footwear brands in recent years, it’ s almost impossible to keep up with all of them. From time to time, around here, we get to see some that deserve to be featured. JAK is one of many that fit our concept.

It is obvious that major brands like Nike, adidas, Diadora and Puma, amongst others, play a big role in the footwear scene, however, try to look beyond that. There’s much more to be seen.

Founded in 2014 in Lisbon, JAK‘s perception is to conceive modern designed footwear using only the best of materials available as of today. In other words, full-grain leather combines flexibility and durability, hence, this is the main material used. After all, such leathers display natural markings, adding individuality to each and every single pair and accessory that is produced.

The shoes are Made in Portugal, following a very strict ethical code when in production, making sure that the raw materials have less of an environmental impact. In addition, sourcing locally and responsibly, every supplier is hand-picked to ensure that such strict code is maintained.

For last but not least, they design shoes for men and women.
