Zapalmansa is a Spanish company specializing in luxury footwear. Exclusive shoes manufactured by the artisans from the small town of Almansa, one of the hotbeds of the Spanish shoe industry.
Born in 2002, they design their premium products for the European market. The manufacturing process is based on a double stitching aimed at isolating the shoe, while also preserving any piece of it from detaching. While manufactured by artisans, a team of designers ensure that the shoes have a traditional, elegant but modern look.
Zapalmansa makes every shoe from a selective set of leathers and materials for every piece of the shoes, including the soles. As if this was not enough, each shoe has the name of the client embossed in its inside. Personalized exclusivity, 100%.
These aspects, with a deep knowledge on satisfying client wishes, result in some of the most exclusive and perfect shoewear in the world. The manufacturing process takes about 3 weeks and if the client requires any changes, the company will carry them without charge. From TARIFA and COMPANY we watch gladly how more and more companies invest in personalized exclusivity.
