More than just shoes

We work to build a better world.
THIS IS MORE THAN JUST A SHOE!


by maria is more than just shoes, it is a company/brand that works to create a more balanced planet and society. That means getting involved in many other issues and being more than just a shoe brand.

We know sustainability and fair trade are more than just trends or fads, they are necessities that we all have to achieve by working together. We know that minor changes in the current structure, namely the footwear industry, are not enough to change the negative impact we are witnessing. Therefore, our system took all the supply chain elements and changed the way they interact, by simplifying them, in the interest of creating a more sustainable supply chain.

A new way of working in the industry
EVERYBODY FITS!


We are changing the way in which the shoe industry works. We seek wellbeing and fairness for all those involved in our business; designers, shoemakers, customers, and suppliers. That’s why we must shine a light on them and tell their stories.

by maria’s main structure has developed its own non-profit organization, by maria Foundation, to ensure the wellbeing of the shoemaker community as its main goal. First of all, we organize independent shoemakers in workshops of 7 people. Secondly, to guarantee the production of high-quality fashion products, the foundation makes sure the workers have:

  • Adequate workplace
  • Social security
  • Suitable machinery
  • Access to educational programs

Therefore, the foundation gives workers the opportunity to make a living while improving their education and quality of life. Learn more here

The best from start to end
WHO HAS OUR BACK?


We take good care of the process of creating our shoes from start to end. We do that because quality is of the utmost importance to us. Our associated designers create their designs to understand how special each person is. We are very thorough in the selection of our materials, that’s why we make sure that the production of our materials is friendly with the environment and socially fair. by maria is influenced by styles and trends from all around the world, as our designers come from varied locations, which allows us to have unique pieces and collections

One of the main challenges is to monitor our suppliers, which is one of the principal tasks of our non-profit organization, by maria Foundation. The goal is to find local suppliers that fulfil our high-quality standards, which includes having certifications of fairtrade and sustainable practices.

Everyone is different
MORE THAN THE PERFECT FIT.


Our shoes are for everyone, but each person is different and unique, that’s why we produce shoes custom made to fit your feet. We teach you how to take your measurements and we use them to make your shoes so that they fit perfectly. We tell stories, we tell your story.

by maria’s team has concentrated its efforts on doing research, in order to find a way to tackle two big problems in the industry: First, the huge dead stocks. Around 300 million pairs of shoes are thrown away every year. Second, the incredible amounts of returns in purchases online, Around 50%, mostly because the sizes were wrong.
