Our Story

OUR MISSION IS TO HANDMAKE TOP-OF-THE-LINE SHOES AT A GREAT VALUE FOR THE DISCERNING GLOBAL CITIZEN

Adelante Shoe Co. is built on the theory that people have values, and will walk the talk if given the chance. That’s why we handcraft our modern classic shoes from 100% quality leather, and choose each price point responsibly. 

It’s also why we pay our Latin American craftsmen and women enough for themselves and their families to live well — a salary amount they define themselves. It’s an entirely new social impact model called the Living Well Line, and it’s raising the bar within the social entrepreneurship field. 

We want you to hold us accountable, so we back our values with full transparency, financial and otherwise. There’s nothing radical about it, just responsible business paying a fair price for work well done. 

Adelante shoes tell a story of human connection, respect, and progress. They will carry you through a Tuesday business meeting, then down to the pier where a cold beer meets the sea. 

Modern classic yet versatile, Adelantes are loving what you do and living what you love.
