'LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO TAKE A NAP'

 

 

 

Catarina Martins arrives on the scene in September 2003 by the hand of Paulo Martins.
The brand’s philosophy 'Life is too short to take a nap' embodies in a few words the urgency in continuous innovation, attention to detail and dynamic response to an ever changing market place.


CM spirit is Vintage but Fresh, Contemporary but Edgy. We have nurtured a signature of hand-dyed and washed leathers granting a recognizable ID in every collection.
Designed following the highest standards of quality with the use of innovative components and authentic materials, key in the brand's evolvement to meet our customer’s high standards. Comfort is also paramount so we use full leather linings to enhance the overall aesthetic. 

 

 

 

 

A tribute to the region and the traditionally hardworking people of the North of Portugal, every pair of Catarina Martins bears the label “Shoes made in region of Oporto”. All suppliers and manufacturing partners are hand picked in the region for their many decades of genuine craftsmanship and attention to detail.
