Created by Women for Women
INLU was first conceptualized in 2017 by a small creative team of women with backgrounds in business and fashion, all sharing a common goal - to create a new generation of footwear, one that’s bold, comfortable, conscience and easily fits your unique style.
From the start, INLU was created with sustainable practices in mind, with a collective goal to have a positive impact on the local economy. It made sense to tap into Portugal’s highly specialized shoe manufacturing industry to produce high-quality, local product. After tireless exploration, the team forged strong partnerships with local manufacturers, who’s in house artisans wholeheartedly embraced INLU’s commitment to creating something unique. These relationships made it clear from the beginning that INLU shoes would be completely handcrafted in Portugal.
From there a contemporary brand of footwear steeped in traditional handcraft techniques and made from locally sourced materials where possible, was born. INLU officially launched in spring 2018 with its debut collection featuring hints of cork, which holds a strong connection to Portuguese culture.
We believe shoes should be bold, not boring, comfortable and always beautifully made. Live your life in color with INLU
