Maians is a Barcelona based shoe label founded by three independent characters with one common vision: to create a footwear brand built on three key pillars – 100% Handmade in Spain, Barceloneta Lifestyle and The Sole Revival.
Detailed craftsmanship meets urban beach style: this is the Maians formula, and it’s what characterises each deftly assembled pair of our unabashedly good-looking shoes. Created by one of Barcelona’s most consummate designers, Alfonso De La Fuente Rey, each pair of Maians is handmade in the Rioja region of Spain using regional materials and vulcanised natural rubber.
The lively maritime district of Barcelona was once a barrier island called Maians, which over centuries became a peninsula: the Barceloneta. Over the years, the former island has transformed into a vibrant district, a source of character, style and inspiration. From this colourful setting comes Maians, a thoroughly unique line of footwear that fulfils the Spanish requisite of casual yet chic.
Our footwear is produced using the artisanal methods from here in Spain. Each of our factories is still owned and operated by the original founding families. The tooling and know-how of each factory is unique and has been passed on from generation to generation. Our soles are manufactured using these original moulds; recovering the rich Spanish shoemaking heritage.
