At Rio Martina, we believe that women's shoes possess an indefinable magic, mysticism and allure that transcends understanding and logic. The simple act of arching your foot, pointing your toes and gently slipping yourself into a pair of nice shoes can be such a powerful experience, be it physically, psychologically or emotionally. Shoes are an enhancement of stature, status and sex appeal, and the height of the heel is mostly irrelevant. As long as the shoe uplifts and enchants, it pleases the woman who wears it and her audience.
The art of shoemaking in Brazil and Brazilian design make the statement of women's shoes even stronger. A large proportion of Brazilian shoe manufacturers belong to families of German or Italian origin whose ancestors came to the country in the 19th century and brought the craft of shoe making with them. In addition, the highest quality materials are used, of which Brazil is richly blessed.
The Brazilian shoe designers are the icing on the cake. They create shoes inspired and influenced by the Brazilian way of life in cities like Rio de Janeiro - shoes that are extravagant, bold, exotic and sophisticated.
Hence our passion for Brazil and Brazilian shoes. When you wear a wonderful pair of Brazilian shoes, you feel like the "Girl from Ipanema" for a moment. During the day it's like moving to the sound of a bossa nova song. And at night you wear a pair to a party and no one can stop you from dancing to the drums of a samba.
