Oliveira Lisboa Shoes

Oliveira shoes are a collection of beautiful shoes designed by Maria Oliveira. After a trip to Sri Lanka Maria was inspired to design her own shoe collection with exceptional quality but also combined with ethical work practices. The collection of  'toe post' shoes are all hand assembled in Sri Lanka before being shipped to the UK to be fully tested for safety and quality before sold.
There are many different styles in the range from sparkly Colombo's, cute Caparica's to the ever so sexy Lisboa's (pictured above). Even included are Olivellies which are a range of wellington boots.


Just opening them for the first time I could see the quality and care taken. Wrapped in layers of bubble wrap to protect them, they come in their own stylish bag and shoe box, neatly each shoe is individually wrapped. The shoe boxes have actually been specially designed made from clear plastic with and end opening draw so even if the pair you want are at the bottom of your pile you can see through the box to find them and can easily take them out without having to unstack all your boxes. You can even buy extra shoe boxes for £5.00 so you can keep all your shoe collection neat and tidy and easy to get to.


For me, I was looking for a pair of shoes that were sexy and stylish but also would be comfy as with me been a mummy it means that where ever I go I will end up chasing around my 2 little boys and so cannot wear silly skyscraper heels as I would break my neck. 
The Lisboa shoes are a gorgeous leopard print shoe that have a 3 3/4inch heel so not too high for me. The material feels soft yet durable and they have a comfy cushion sole.



I'm usually quite a shy woman but these shoes seems to ooze confidence and I love the new found sexiness they seemed to have given me. I'm not one to follow trends and these shoes are surely ones for people who dare to be different. 


You can buy the gorgeous Lisboa shoes online for £70.

  3. I love them, but how do you find the toe post thingy? It doesn't look very comfortable somehow...

    1. To be honest, when I first received them I thought they would be uncomfortable as I don't usually wear the ones that go in between toes but they are actually very soft and easy to walk in and very comfy x

  4. I don't usually like to purchase shoes on line because sizes/fit is so unpredictable. But I loved these and definitely recommend them.
